Re: Failure to launch

Thanks a bunch. I think the cause of my problem may he overstriding and being under and incorrectly moving back as you said in other threads. I'll be honest I have never used a mid before so i will try that the next time I jump and keep you posted on the outcome. Thanks again.

Re: Failure to launch

Dj, could you please clarify how to get a starting point for a run of 7 lefts. I understand that my mid should be 46 feet, if i am holding 13 9, and im 6'1" tall. I guess my question is do you put tap down at 46 feet from the box, then run back an aditional 3 lefts to find a starting point for ...

Re: Failure to launch

On a 14 foot pole (gripping 13'9") my run is 14 steps, 7 lefts, with a length of about 93'6", more towards 94' in competition or when i am a little juiced up.

Re: Please help! getting frustrated...

Let me start out by saying I'm no expert, but if you turn ten feet will be cake for you. Your invert is not bad, and had you turned you would have cleared. After you invert fully just turn your right leg inward and rotate it over your left leg. This should help alot, and should not be too difficult ...

I know that if i can improve my technique especially at the top, i can acheive much greater heights, hopefully 14 plus feet by the time districts and states come around. There was little to no wind on this day, ...

Re: Bottom arm discussion continues...

During take off you should apply pressure upward. No, you should be elastic here Once the swing begins, if you are still pushing with your bottom arm is this not a passive phase You are not still pushing, because you just came out of an elastic position. I am not an expert but i have studied the pe...
