Pole Vault Training Program

A training program has to be developed to meet the individual needs of the athlete and take into consideration many factors: gender, age, strengths, weaknesses, objectives, training facilities etc. As all athletes have different needs, a single program suitable for all athletes is not possible.

The following is an example of a weeks training for each of the three phases of an annual training program for the Pole Vault.
