Looking for an In-Season Training Program?

A forum to discuss overall training techniques, nutrition, injuries, etc. Discussion of actual pole vault technique should go in the Technique forum.

Saturday – Full Vaults
1. Progress into full vaults quickly, just as you would in competition.
2. 10-20 Full Vaults with or without bungee (depending on need)
----- Special Note----- This day should focus on the first phase of your vault that is broken. In other words, if you have takeoff problems, you should not be working on your turn. Emphasis is on using correct technique through each phase, not on clearing bars or bungees. Use this day to correct technical problems, not shoot for certain heights.

Sunday – Full Rest
