Observations

1. Watch the video, does your vaulters top hand move infront of their chin durign the plant at all. If the hand does move forward the pole will create additional forces that will be applied on the hands pulling them forward even further. This in return applies additional forces on the shoulders whic...

Hmmm

Well with the other post Onrutton made about how to get inverted tells me he can't. This also tells me that his plant is limiting his ability to become inverted. If you lock out the bottom arm you will never reach inversion. It must break. Your focus should be on uppward pressure and nothing else. E...

If thats the Case

Then your holding to low. If you are really on with your plant and not under. Then your simply holding to low. Raise your hand grip slowly and I bet you will kiss the pole less and less.

An idea for you

ever hear of a thing called a measuring tape. Every day you jump remeasure your steps then it doesn't matter if the boards shift. Good luck and keep with it. ;)

Need to see the takeoff

my guess your taking off way under and reaching at the plant but can't tell unless we see a pic of your plant. Also are you diving in at the plant or actually jumping off the ground. Then again if your so far under your simply getting jerked off the ground. either way unless you see where you takeof...

More info needed

What length pole are you on? What is your approach length? How tall are you? Is your top arm straight at the plant and takeoff? The collapsing of the bottom arm could be a bad or good thing. If your applying upward pressure who cares if it collapses. As long as your applying some pressure to keep yo...

Thank you for that post Altius. I hope everyone noticed what he said. Your first STEP must be correct before you can even worry about a Free Takeoff/Prejump. I concure with Altius on the estimation that over 90% of the American jumpers plant under even if they think they are doing the supposed free ...

Well here we go again. People pay attention

Ok for all those that feel they need to do more harm than good and attack everyone. Let's take a moment and examine this.

Peter Supports the idea behind the Free Takeoff. His statement was that the pole should not strike the back of the box till the vaulter is on his or her toe and is about to break contact with the ground. This statement is very similar to the same principle behind the notion of a free takeoff/PreJump...
