*EDIT*

I just got done watching that David Butler video from his lecture... Pretty much explains exactly what i'm doing, and what i need to do to fix it. Man, what a great speech/lecture.

Re: Rowing/pressing top arm. Serious question.

As far as blocking out this is what i suspect is happening with badmother. Not blocking out at takeoff, but when he is inverting. I don't have any video but the picture shows his right arm angle point forwad. (His point in starting this thread.) You can't get in this position by rowing with the rig...

Re: Rowing/pressing top arm. Serious question.

That sounds like you are being rigid in the shoulder girdle! That is NOT a good thing! It delays you swing and makes it harder to time up with the pole at maximum bend! Send me the vids and I'll Dartfish you! Reading up on this 'tense/rigid shoulder girdle' a bit more, and it really sounds like wha...

Re: Rowing/pressing top arm. Serious question.

Sam, Driving your hand up and towards the back of the pit is a good thing. Send me a recent video and I'll put you side by side with Bubka or Mack and you can step frame by frame through both jumps and see what they are doing compared to what you are doing!! I'll see if i can grab a few videos from...

Rowing/pressing top arm. Serious question.

Okay, from the start, let me be clear what i'm talking about when i say 'rowing.' I'm talking about the top hand ONLY, and actively pushing it forward (towards the back of the pit) during the entire vault. Really hope you all understand what i'm talking about on this... That being said.... During my...

Re: Pole "Swaying"

or is it even relevant to a successful jump? Thanks. Oh it definitely is. Kirk has all of the really good info in his post, but I'll tell you what i tell the kids I coach about "swaying" or "pumping your arms... Imagine wadding up a piece of paper to throw. The tighter you wad it up,...

Re: Ugliest 13' clearance EVER.

For a 13ft jump you actually have really good technique. Kirk covered most the things you need to work on. One of the big things I notice is it looks like your not running full speed. This might be do to your pole drop but I think you could be a little more aggresive. Also you finished with the pol...

Ugliest 13' clearance EVER.

But a clearance is a clearance i suppose... And it's a PR for me, for an actual meet.

Under.
Awful trail leg.
HUGE overstride.
NO inversion.
No idea why i'm so far on the runway side of the pole at the top of my jump.

SO much work to do.
