Re: Applied Motor Learning: Males vs. Females in the Pole Vault

All of your notions that you are asking about come down to the Anthropometric measures of the ladies pole vault. From a anthropometric stand point we are going to see similarities between men and women elite vaulters in terms of upper body/lower body weight distributions, but the truth remain that b...

Re: push ups? sit ups? pull ups? whats the best for polevaulting

The unfortunate punchline is is that push-up are functionally not the same as pole vault. The impulse and impact that influences that portion of the body are very high, if you are not seeing a Physio right now and rehabbing, you may step on the runway and blow up your shoulder's AC joint the first f...

Re: Pole Vault Helmet Cam!!

This is fun, one of my most favorite place to jump is Franklin Feild. When that crowd is all cranked up and that place gets pumping, that is one of the coolest places to compete... and sure enough going over a bar looks just like that... Every time I compete there, when I was flying away, i knew I m...

Re: New member looking for constructive review!

C'mon lets be reasonable, at the D1 level there are only about 50-60 guys on any given year who jump 5.20 or above... to say that schools start looking at 5.20 is really not true... and what, only less than a hand full of high school-ers jump 5.20 on any given year. A schools need is also taken into...

Re: New member looking for constructive review!

Well you wanna win the state comp... well... what state do you live in? Anyhoo, the above advice may sound harsh but it is pretty accurate. There are very few scholarships at the men's collegiate level. There are only scholarships at the D1 - 2 level, D3 has no money to give for athletics, however, ...

Re: The Snatch

***Olympic lifting has a very real danger to it when not done correctly! Having a teacher is a must when starting or learning how to do them.*** The wideness of the grip changes the angle of the arms and distance that the weight has to move. If you hold shoulder width you you have to move the weight...

Re: Glucosamine Chondroitin

Now to my understanding, (and if I am incorrect please someone correct me) in the US, the FDA does not over see nutritional supplements. There is not a huge amount of regulation that goes into these types of products... So although it seems unlikely for the above situation to take place it absolutel...

Re: Drills for form and habits

In terms of habits, make it a habit to clear the pit of any and all objects on or around it while jumping, this includes poles, and training partners. A spiked pole is a $300 - $600 mistake, a spiked shoe to your team mate will probably end your friendship... In terms of the jumping, I think you nee...

Re: Drills for form and habits

Okay... In response respectfully no... Good vaulters clear low bars my a mile not because they are looking at the bar, they clear the bar by a mile because they are good vaulters... and the bar is low... The vaulter in the photo is not closed off to the pole completely nor dropped onto the shoulders...

Re: Drills for form and habits

Where and when did the notion of not looking at the bar come into play? Really a tucked head/chin is a safety thing... Some one lay it down for me about why we don't want to look at the bar. From what I can see in that photo you are in the right position, but you're not to the pole... which leads me...
