Re: Follow me on my journey to 16'

Re: SERGEI BUBKA - OVER THE BAR BY V. MANSVETOV

ya thats true and I feel like the way it works at high schools is the track coaches send all the kids who are not fast enough to win any races over to the pole vault pit. Also coaches rarely let good athletes focus on the vault because they want them to do a bunch of events just to score the track t...

Re: SERGEI BUBKA - OVER THE BAR BY V. MANSVETOV

Re: Help on Getting Inverted

what is happening is that you are rowing whether you are trying to or not.... its like your trying to push your top hand to your legs rather than swinging your legs up to meet your top hand.
