Re: The fitness of pole vaulters: a discussion...

actually that is a pretty solid list.....only comment I would make was doing some sort of bench....i see push-ups, but you need to add some weight to pec exercises to get overload (or do a huge amount of push-ups) I agree. Somewhere on here I recall reading that you should be able to bench 135 perc...

Re: Describing the pole vault...

You can buy BTB2 here: http://polevaultpower.com/store/ I bought it a month ago, and it's a great source of PV coaching/training info. Everyone on this forum should have a copy. There's other places to buy it, but buying it from PVP supports the cost of Becca supporting this PV forum. Split, I like...

Re: Describing the pole vault...

Well this was my first year, so during the first month, the vault coach didn't come, so we didn't have access to any of the pole vault stuff. The pit wasn't set up, the pole shed was locked up. Now, the track head coach took over, so there will be more access to them, plus, a graduating vaulter is g...

Re: Describing the pole vault...

Ab workouts, usually around 1000 a set, and depending on the day, can go up to 5000. All this, and we havent even started vaulting yet. Split, if your reps are true, I'm impressed. In my day, I only worked myself up to a few 100 situp reps per day - max (I don't remember the exact number)! They wer...

Re: Describing the pole vault...

I forgot to add, my workouts consist of... A sprinting workout, usually ladders, from 50 to 300 meters and back, done at increasing intensity, until about 90 percent and then back down to 60. A lifting regime, which consists of lower and upper body lifting, as well as olympic lifts. Jumping workout,...

Describing the pole vault...

To someone to make it seem nearly impossible. A lot of kids want to try it so they won't have to run, and I want to see which ones are actually for sure, and which ones are lazy. I'm a big time workout warrior, so I think I could weed most out by myself with my workouts. I want to intimidate the laz...

Re: XC ruin pole vault?

I actually did football last year, but pulled my groin so it was pretty much a lost season.
It finally healed in December, so I was already behind when track season started...

Re: VAULTING POLE NICKNAMES

We have this big, black pole, thats like 15' maybe even 16' long, and it weighs like 50 pounds (no joke) its not used to vault, but to teach proper running form. All the new kids have to do pole runs with it the first few weeks. It's excruciatingly painful, and sometimes kids quit from doing them so...
