measure the circumference of you pole
Speed -Strength -Flexibility- Body Awareness-how crazy are you
Yes pole vault poles do break. They can be spiked which takes away there structural integrity or be overloaded by the vaulter if the pole is too small. The poles will then break.
my track coach only made us do 2 pull ups to try out for pole vault. you don't need a lot of upper arm strength because your arms will get stronger after you practice. my friend can hardly do 1 pull up and she is currently getting over the 6 foot Mark. it is mostly all about the technique you use.
