Pole Carry

The running speed and the effectiveness of the pole plant are essential in our event. Until mid-1980’s, there was a variety of methods of carrying the pole, would you believe it or not, from one arm carry, to sliding the tip on the ground, to carrying pole to the side, parallel to the ground, etc. With appearance on the scene of Bubka with his ultra-massive grips and poles, that reminded more tree trunks than fishing poles, the necessity to address pole carry became apparent and today most athletes use uniform pole carry popularized by Bubka.

So, what are the main parameters and training methods of carrying the pole? How can we insure the least interference of the pole with the run, the most consistent performance of the plant and jump?

These questions and training methods are answered and presented in the member section. So, to learn more become a member today.
