Gymnast-turned-pole-vaulter Robin Bone has never let any stone, on her way, stop her from achieving her dreams and goals. This is what inspires so many like her.
With a stunning future ahead of her, let’s catch up with Robin Bone on how she turned her challenges into opportunities to achieve what she has today, exclusively on Women Fitness.
You initially played gymnastics but real life challenges lead you to take up the sport of Pole vault? At what age did you begin? You are an inspiration for a number girls out there!
Thank you, its so kind of you to say that I inspire people. Of course people see my helmet and I really don’t want it to be about wearing a helmet or not, I want it to be about people to not just going for their goals, but CHARGING towards them! I first started pole vault in ninth grade but only did three months of it prior to playing varsity lacrosse outdoors in my freshman year. It wasn’t until tenth grade that I decided to focus more solely on pole vault. Gradually, I increased training levels and set goals for myself to accomplish once I had established a coach and proper place to train.
Best performance of your career till date?
My best performance is 4.36m, which was to break the Canadian USport Record.
Elaborate on your workout routine presently?
My training schedule changes slightly everyday for what my coach has planned but overall it follows this format:
- 7:00am: Eldoa exercises and Mobility
- 7:30am: Warm-up + pre-training activation exercises
- 8:30am: Technical work/ speed training/ speed endurance
- 10:30am: Circuit/complex work to end track session
- 11:00am: Pre-weight training snack/break
- 11:30am: Weight training
- 12:45pm: Cool-down/mobility
- 1:00pm: Ice bath/Contrast therapy
- 1:30pm: Lunch/Break
- 3:00pm: Athletic Therapy Treatment w/ PT/Chrio/RMT
What do you have for breakfast to stay nourished? How do you keep yourself fuelled during training sessions?
My daily breakfast varies for different training days but my staple is a coffee and a hearty bowl of oats with chia seeds, hemp seed, flax seed, some fruit and almond butter. I find this combo keeps me full throughout my training without making me feel sluggish.
