Pole Vault News
Had a great practice from 3 lefts today. Felt like I was keeping more energy in the pole. Feeling more efficient already. After seeing the some of the changes show up, it makes me think that I used to only depend on athleticism to jump. And by no means am I the world greatest athlete.
3 Left (6 steps, w/ walk up)
13' pole 13.5 carbon (180lbs from 3, im 150lbs)
Bar at 4.30m (14')
