Re: Need Plant Help

If you are wanting to work on your plan, I would recommend that you NOT jump in the pit. Do walking plants on the track. Then do running plants into a towel. Then running plants into a slidebox. No sense in having to put in the extra effort of swinging and attempting to clear bungees/bars. If I were...

Re: Advice on rockback and moving up a pole.

How much do you weigh? Your takeoff is under by at least one foot. You can't jump up very well if you're under. Move your step back. Clearly mark your takeoff with tape or chalk. Take the bungee down & swing to the back of the pit. Stop worrying about anything after the takeoff until you fix you...

Re: Help getting past training wall

Bottom arm. Push up with your bottom arm more at the plant. As a previous post pointed out, your timing of the plant is late. While you should not be jumping with a 140lb pole, you can train with one. When you train with a small pole, you shouldn't take more than 4 full strides at running speed. Tak...

Re: INTRODUCING PV BODY GUARD!!!

The obvious question: How much? Looks awesome! I would love to add that to my collection of safety gear. I may be old school, but I just throw a pad (foam block, football dummy, wedge, etc) in the box after the kid takes off. I can see how this would make jumping alone a lot safer for sure! Let us k...

Re: Fixing a take off that is under

I am having a problem with my take off. In both practice and at meets I am always taking off for my plant at around 6" to a foot under my take off mark (Fortunately Im also a college fb player so I have the strength to muscle my way out of this position and save my vault but this is still kill...

Re: Online Vault Analysis Site Launched

I get what you're saying, but this is not necessarily "professional" advice that is given on this forum. It's my understanding that these guys are trying to be innovators and stake their reputations behind their analysis. Plus, how many video reviews have you seen on here that never get re...
