Everything is getting hot in the pole vault world and records are being broken, and new PR’s are constantly being achieved. Everyone seems to be stepping up their game and clearing the big bars.
On the cover, Coach Mike Cockerham, Flying Dragons Pole Vault Coach. “The coaching philosophy at The Flying Dragons club stems from Mike’s own experience as a vaulter, as well as what he’s observed over the years.” Mike and his club are one of a kind that develops some of the best athletes the sport has ever seen. Enjoy the article and the hard work that Samantha put forth this month. Well deserved!
Kreager Taber writes about Narrowing Muscular Imbalances from Pole Vaulting.Many imbalances can affect your sport and the abilities that you put forth. “The oblique muscles, instead of being lopsided from the athlete only swinging up on one side, will be strengthened uniformly and provide even stabilization for the vaulter as they run down the runway.” It’s a serious article that you should not take lightly! Enjoy and good job Kreager!
Check us out next month when we sit down and talk to Bubba Sparks and analyze his knowledge of the sport. Fun times ahead, stay tuned!
