Alrite, because this is partially a challenge (My friend said I couldn't do it) and I basically need to do it to move down to a 150 pound pole instead of a 160 in pole vualt. So basically, do any of you guys (or girls) have any suggestions on how to lose the weight? I'm in track, yet I still manage to do very little running...when it gets warmer I will. But right now, the only really viable option is to well, eat less (er, a lot less. Man, I eat a whole lot of rice when my parents make good food). Meh, being a vaulter in high school is so troublesome...in college they don't care about weight. I just dropped down to this pole in practice to practice bending the pole, and its just...awesome.
