Re: Swing Efficiency Comparison: Bubka, Tradenkov, Lavillenie

Decamous: "why is it none of the upper level coaches every talk about it in terms likes this" PVDaddy "Why is it they don't talk about a lot of things and educate us more? They sure like to promote themselves and their book though don't they!" Not sure how many folk have written ...

Re: Another beginner in the "real world"

Looking good! Just work on the high bar - emphasising left leg = then long swings onto the pad - ditto - then stiff pole over a bar off 6 or eight steps - same focus. The inversion is the most difficult phase for beginners to begin to master. Just don't give many pieces of information - cues - just ...

Re: Swing Efficiency Comparison: Bubka, Tradenkov, Lavillenie

Kirk - I understand this is the Advanced section but surely the aim of Pole Vault Power is always to clarify and educate, not to complicate and obfuscate. I have spent time with some of the great vault coaches of the world and apart from their passion the one thing they all have in common is their a...

Re: Swing Efficiency Comparison: Bubka, Tradenkov, Lavillenie

You both continue to ignore the fact that Bubka jumped much higher than 6.16 on many occasions - but for commercial reasons the bar wasn't at that height - take a look at the photo I use here! Clearing a 6.01 bar by nearly 40 cm! The reason is simple, Bubka was out there on his own - he had no one t...

Re: Swing Efficiency Comparison: Bubka, Tradenkov, Lavillenie

"I contend the more you know the more the simplicity of the event reveals itself. Understanding intellectually is one thing. Expressing that understanding though personal actions is also very revealing of the amount of wisdom from experience required to sort pole vault science from the fiction....

Re: Peaking at the big meets

"One other thought: DVDs are getting to be a bit old-fashioned. If you could devise a means to download your vid for a fee (being careful not to get ripped off - outlawing re-publishing on youtube or elsewhere), then you might sell more copies. Just a thought." Thanks Kirk -but remember th...
