Re: NCAA Mandates new ASTM Box Collar by Dec 2013

OK. I just bought the pdf file. Man, I'm an Engineer that designs microchips for IBM and the wording used in the ASTM document is like reading one of my IBM rule documents that specifies the limitations of how a chip can be manufactured based on a given technology :) . I had to read the ASTM doc mul...

Re: did i fix it?

You are absolutely right you would have to lean forward or push your top hand in front of you to allow a straight bottom arm at the plant with a "correct" grip width. Why on earth would anyone do that? Because pole angle and space behind the pole are both function of bottom arm extension,...

Re: did i fix it?

Try it just standing on the ground. Holding at a low grip, you will have to lean forward slightly to create the space. You are absolutely right you would have to lean forward or push your top hand in front of you to allow a straight bottom arm at the plant with a "correct" grip width. Why...

Re: did i fix it?

The correct position at the plant is to have both arms completely extended Unless your grip was way too wide, which is "blocking" in itself, this is impossible. If you have a "correct" grip width and extended both arms straight at the plant, the pole tip would hit way above the ...

Re: Why am I not Penetrating

In fact, "Rock Back" is not a cue that I utilize personally - our squad did ring work today and as some athletes are new, their ring work resembled your inversion with a muscled effort... the idea is to utilize the momentum of the trail leg to whip through and generate momentum into a mor...

Re: did i fix it?

Surprised no one else commented on this yet: Sorry CoachEric. I know you are just trying to help. I mean that your left arm should be completely extended at takeoff.

Current USA "Pros" vs "College" Men

Sorry for being a d*#%. Shouldn't have posted it. The positive out of it was the college guys killed it last night and that had to be one of the best PV comps EVER! I was on the edge of my seat ( at home unfortunately ) for the whole thing. I wouldn't go as far as saying results are just results on ...
