Competition-Phase Micro-Cycles for the Elite Pole-Vaulter

0

Here’s another video from Coach Pfaff. This one’s another from the HPC ELITETRACK Gold Medal Track Clinic. It’s about training elite pole vaulters. Although Dan is known more for his sprint coaching pupils, he has also coached plenty of elite pole vaulters, most recently coaching Brad Walker to an American Record last year. One of the things that sets Dan apart from some of his fellow pole vault coaching counterparts is that he trains them very similar to athletes in other events. No underwater vaulting, no inversion gadgets, and no handbook full of thousands of stiff pole drills. Just athletic development with a pole in your hand. As with his other talk this again provides some great insight that can be used by coaches and athletes in a wide variety of events.
