This is what I was about to write to my coach, Kris Allison, so I thought I would post it here as well. Kris please shoot me an email with your input. Thanks Dude!
OK so even with more eating of protein and lifting hard I've settled in at around 160 lbs. Though I'm starting to move poles again, nothing big and certainly not a decent grip height. I'm getting a push off at 10'6" and my grip is well under the bar at 11' and 11'6" I'm trying to gain weight without the fat but that's a slow process.
SO, Kris I'm thinking about returning to the "List" - http://www.bubbapv.com/Pages/dj.htm The reason is that my start mark (list mid mark) for 8' IS my full run from where I can jump 11' each day. The list brings you into the box much faster, with a lower grip, which believe it or not, rapidly moves you to bigger poles. Since I can't seem to move big poles and I'm not getting my run back before I'm too tired, it seems the list would force me to do both rather safely and in a fun way. Thoughts Kris!! Thanks! Bubba
