Plant question?

Hi everyone. My question is as follows:
Is it fundamentally better to plant directly above your shoulder for a higher angle or to plant slightly lower but directly over your head?
I have heard coaches tell me to do both ways and just wanted to know if there is a preferred method.

Re: Pole drop

The most important things regarding pole drop are as follows: The dropping of the pole does minimally affects running form And that your pole is parallel or lower to the ground before you begin your plant Both of these seem to be met in your run so I would say that you should stick with what your do...

Re: How to stay behind the pole? (With Video)

I think, judging from your videos that you need to jump off the ground more, it will help you stay behind the pole and prevent your hips from getting sucked under. You can practice this from a three step and work your way back to your full run.

Re: Take off problems

Try to get to a pole you can bend from four lefts. Make sure to start with the tip of your pole just above your head and when you go, steadily drop your pole down and make sure to jump as high as you can off the ground. Try do something uncomfortable, in the aspect of doing what you are not used to,...

Re: Jumping over top handgrip?

My coach sets them for me, but they are usually in the 17-22 inch range, probably closer to 17 because this was a big pole for me.
