Whenever my kids stride out at the end of their run, which happens quite often, it's because the begining of their run was too quick. Those first few steps need to be long, powerful, aggresive steps. Each step needs to get progressively faster. IF the kids cover more ground in the begining of their ...

SlickVT "Poles can't just keep bending, dude. There is a point where a pole has bent past its limit to where its going to break, even if brand new, and I hit that limit every time. The poles were new, and I keep my poles in great shape to avoid breaks. I just put too much energy in it, getting too m...

SlickVT "I'd have a new amount of energy in the jump, and snap, the glass just couldnt take it. "

The glass can take it. The pole was either damaged or you had too flat a takeoff.

Cut back the weightroom time significantly. If someone has too much muscle?? then they are either very blessed or lift 5 to 6 days a week. Cut down to two or three with, like you said, lower weight, higher reps. Sticking to body weight exercises will keep strength and speed but should help shed a li...

I don't really know the right answer but maybe Tye Harvey would have some insight. He's tried both methods and has stuck with the traditional carry. My suggestion is to time your vaulters runway velocities and see which carry can get them there faster. Then go from there.

Never worn one, never will. I feel vaulting is a fairly safe activity if you have proper coaching and your smart about it. Oviously freak accidents happen but I guess that I'm willing to risk it. Plus coming down head first from 17+, you still risk a pretty good chance of a spinal injury even with a...

It looks like Brad Walker needs to post a big mark pretty soon, or NCAA will be very interesting.

Peaking and PR's are two different things. Peaking at big meets is great, (NCAA's for example) but I think that you should have the mind set to PR at every meet. If you don't feel as though you can't PR at any given meet and are waiting to PR at a given time, you should re-evaluate exactly what it i...
