Re: trying to fix my plant and take off

But please post some vids, so we can assess your technique better than just hearing from you that you have a good swing. What you must mean is that for a 4.05 vaulter, your swing isn't "all that bad". This is different than saying that you have a good swing, and until we see it, we can't ...

trying to fix my plant and take off

Ok. So I've been working ALOT on my plant and take off, and I’m finally able to make some of the adjustments necessary. Don’t get me wrong, it still needs a lot of improvement but it’s getting better :) I do not have a coach, so I’m just trying to figure things out by myself, so I would really appre...

Re: 8 step jump

Your plant is so jammed up its almost impossible for you to row and get inverted on the pole. Secondly this is a 6 left run so i dont know where the 8 step title came into play. and you need to think about pushing your hips up constantly throughout the jump because right now you hip movement is sta...
