Re: DJ's mid chart question - bar height during practice runs

The chart was actually not created from a lot of "gathered data".. I was a long jumper in the late 60's and had learned that the basic "physics" of the event was: The Faster you could run on the runway, all other parts being equal, the farther you could p jump. Fast AND "acc...

Re: DJ's mid chart question - bar height during practice runs

The grip to bar height is for the average jumper with a PR bar height near that height. If your overall PR is much higher you will have swing and plant skills that are above the average for that grip and bar height... Don't know if that makes since... The idea at any run distance is to maximize the ...

Re: Vince Anderson Acceleration Ladders/Charts

hey one of the keys to running correctly is to teach "push" mechanics… and progressive stride lengths based on the amount of "push" on each step. You can find my charts at http://www.oneapproachrun.com The speed acceleration chart takes you step by step for approximately a 11.0 1...

Re: Pop on top

hello He is swinging "TO" vertical and should be swinging "through" vertical. Another way to look at it is to continue swinging, from takeoff (yes long arms/elastic) to max height, using the arms to swing, pull, turn… all in one continuous motion. Another consideration is that th...

Re: ideal technique in the fiberglass vault

hello hey, Tully was not and exception... what he did was change more to a "physics based" method that would produce a greater "resultant velocity" or in short terms more force at the takeoff. This allowed him to grip higher and perform the correct technique more easily, consiste...

Re: ideal technique in the fiberglass vault

good afternoon, you have entered into a discussion that has no viable answers. are you saying he went from taking off under to using a free-take off or that he just lengthened his last 2 strides?

Re: ideal technique in the fiberglass vault

hello

numbers/data impact what i'm saying...

Tim was the same... yes he was "under" many times by 10cm.. but so was bubka.
