hey everyone!!!
is everyone excited for the season? i know i am, but i have a bit of a problem. i hurdle, pole vault and sprint. i have my first meet of the year on saturday and my events are as follows:
100 hh - 10:00am
pole vault -11:00am
300 h - 11:35am
4x4 - 2:00pm

the thing is, i wanted to do well in pole vault, but i have my 300 hurdles in the middle of it. i kind of want to tell my hurdle coach that maybe i just dont want to do them this meet, but i know he'll be mad at me. its not that i just want to get out it, i just dont want to have to worry about 2 events at once. ive done this in the past but i want to focus more on pole vault this year. i dont know what to do. i know its the first meet of the season and i probably wont do anything spectacular in either, but im still a little torn. anyone ever have the same problem?

Hi, im a sophomore in hs and i just recently started pole vaulting. I was wondering if you had any tips to offer or certin muscles i should be working on making stronger. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
well pole vaulting is something that is more technical than muscle related. worry about your form and technique towards the beginning of the season. the height will come later. bad habbits come out of despritness. right now, focus on your form and learning how to jump correctly, it will help you tremendously in the long run.
also, try working your abs alot. a strong core always helps in pole vault.
