Get Vertical in 2 Weeks

This has worked for me forever but never more than after a two year layoff when I couldn't get upside down to save my life. Hope this helps! Bubba

Beginner to Bubka Ordering Info

Thanks so much for the kind words gbob!! I had a mentor once remind me that the mind is like a parachute and works best when open. Another told me that the definition of insanity is expecting a different result by taking the same approach. This forum allows great possibilities for all of us. I feel ...

I Respectfully Disagree

I may have been around a long time but I'm still a beginner and will remain that way until 8' vaulters quit pointing out things I didn't really notice and new ways of thinking. Thankfully, I don't see that happening. My training partner, Jim Julian, is 71 and he just got his first 8' vault. I've lea...

Beginner to Bubka Book

I've read some responses to Altius' presentation and his defense of the book, "Beginner to Bubka". The truth is that I know the author very well and he has been a house guest in the past. Though I've been away from the event for a couple of years, I'm back and pumped to be back. I have read his book...

Tecnique Work

You know vaultwest, with everything you're already doing right with regard to your take off, you might want to try this. It's a 1-3 jump fix and is real easy but a little spooky at first. When you take off try not to never let your top hand come behind your forehead. Pretned there's plywood coming o...

Plant Refinement

Hey Man! You're problem is my problem but it didn't used to be. I got away from some drills that were a staple of my warm-up. We pulled out an old Nordic 17/215 and gripped about 16' 6" and did a series of plant drills. Believe me, with that mutha, it falls where it wants so it teaches you how to ru...

Form Your Own Club

If you have access to a place to jump you can form your own USATF club ($75 a year I think) and set up a schedule. Their liability insurance will name the school to protect them. I did this at UC Irvine for 14 years and am about to do it at our local high school in the Houston area. You can have mee...

Fun Group

This group is like a bad Halloween party in that whatever name a person uses, you know who's under the costume. MAN, a ton of people I love and respect here. WAY cool!! I hear DJ's voice as much as ever during practice but the left wrist above the left elbow through the plant is my focus now. I find...

Looking 4 Info

I was told there was a discussion about Bubka's use of his left hand throughout the jump. Can anybody get me there. Sorry, I'm new here. Bubba

Training

New to the group. I sure see a lot of good sensible advice here. I would hate to think that any of us are maturing, but getting smarter isn't so bad. Bubba
