Re: Swing Efficiency Comparison: Bubka, Tradenkov, Lavillenie

I guess you again restate how PVDaddy (you) are the smartest thing to look at pole vaulting since -- ever-- Lets keep these as discussion as discussion - If you want to call me names or try and belittle others on this site - I really could give a dam -- no RL does not have zero knee drive - it does ...

Re: Swing Efficiency Comparison: Bubka, Tradenkov, Lavillenie

Just a few random comments before the weekend -- comments that RL does not drive knee -- really!! Must be looking at wrong video - interesting thing is many HJer's drive knee and the let it drop - yet some do not -- ok - to next part - what if the slight drop helps when it is pulled/driven back up t...

Re: Swing Efficiency Comparison: Bubka, Tradenkov, Lavillenie

PVDaddy you ask how do I know this to be true? I assume your are referring to my comments about end loads -- how about I spend years measuring such things using load cells and other means of testing. Just like I could build 5 different poles with the same flex number (and length) and different end l...

Re: Swing Efficiency Comparison: Bubka, Tradenkov, Lavillenie

I tried this earlier this morning but obviously did not submit properly - PVStudent graphs since posted - show part of the point - optimal pole selection - back to the Vaulter A and Vaulter B - same speed and hgt etc but B is 90Kg versus A being 70Kg B will have more available force at take off beca...

Re: Swing Efficiency Comparison: Bubka, Tradenkov, Lavillenie

Altius you are correct -- when I was typing the info from a pdf of his presentation I did not type "not" -- Presentation or a pdf of it is one think - talking to them does help --

Since I can not attach a pdf here - I will attach to my website on the PV page

Re: Swing Efficiency Comparison: Bubka, Tradenkov, Lavillenie

Lighten up PVDaddy -- or maybe use bigger font yet! These quotes are from Lavillenie coaches presentation at the 2012 Vertical Jumps Conference - "Do mistake the fundamentals of the vault with the individual style" and Goals for 2010 - "Long Left Leg in Swing and rockback" - he a...

Re: Petrov Model vs. Lavillenie Model

2014 Vertical Jumps Conference in Colgne - had a presentation about some of this - training and such Kirk - as far as some of the points like what is their goal (other than clear high bars) - would be nice if we could get some info right from the coach and vaulter Would also be nice if we could disc...

Re: Differences in Pole Brands?

Interesting way to look at it -- but I prefer to look at it from do not worry about bending the pole - when you learn to take off well and swing - the wgt label and its location is seldom the issue - only time it might be is when pole selection is extremely limited

Re: Feel like I'm taking off early

early! I would say late and would be under -- pole is starting to bend and you have not got you take-off foot down - pole has hit back of slide box arms are not fully extended or pressing/pushing up (plant tall arms fully extended) -- drills must replicate the desired take-off - or you practice what...

Re: Differences in Pole Brands?

Easiest way is to ignore the label placement - a 13ft 145 Spirit and a 13 ft 145 Pacer would feel almost identical if held right at the top - so for you the 13-145 Spirit to the 13-150 Pacer is the next pole up - just our of curiosity - flex numbers- 13-145 should be around 20.5 and 13-150 should be...
