Something for you to consider. You can walk on (or get the chance to) a D1 school and work with the track team and the vaulters and never see the track or a locker for 4 years. On the other hand if you did jump 13 or 14 feet this year you could go to a DII or DIII school and jump next year. What wou...

Should do fine. It's definitely a sprint not a marathon. Key thing is, pay attention, have fun and figure if something looks like it could hurt you (gripping too high, fooling around, letting go of the pole on an aborted jump) it will.

Practicing bad plants and bad vault mechanics is practicing to hold yourself back. GET SOME GOOD HELP with your carry, drop, plant, etc. Bubba has ...
I was considering doing p90x and combined with some cardio runs for track conditioning, should i take like a 2 week break in between seasons? or just continue training at low intensity? Nope! Trust me. If you do what is listed on Bubba's training pages you will be jump ready and frankly you will no...
