very superstitious writings on the wall

i always visualize my jump all the way through before i run through

I also have strange things that i use to mark my steps, i've used this old antique lock, my nametag from work, and a miniature cannon paperweight.

I also cant have anyone anywhere near the runway, it messes with my head

I don't swing all the way up or something, its because i'm not rocking back, so instead of vaulting up, i'm vaulting out. Co...

Dude

You look identical to me in that video! My coach today said that i've got it in me, but i just cant rock back. I think it might have to do with my bottom arm, but i donno, i need to see a video.

So whats some good tips on swinging all the way through and getting my legs and hips up instead of out?

I've been training my rear end off all through the winter and, despite some setbacks, i'm vaulting this y...
