Re: Should you pull at take off?

Well, I'm not sure what to say. I know that Michelle did increase her speed from her sophomore year to her senior year. I would hope at least, otherwise our training programs wouldn't be worth anything. I am however trying to provide everyone with some information on how we got the transformation fr...

Re: Should you pull at take off?

I'm not sure what is so bad about her plant from the traditional sense in the first two jumps, and I actually would like her left arm a little more extended before take-off so she doesn't get hit as much in the latter videos. And as far as what you see I get your point, but I am telling you what we ...

Re: Should you pull at take off?

Hey everyone. Sorry for taking so long to make the following videos. I've been real busy coaching. There really is no off season. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wNiXhYMrNAA The above video is our zero step progression and the following video is one of my athlete's progression from the traditional Pe...

Re: Should you pull at take off?

I am not done with the videos yet, sorry. I hope to get them posted by next week. I just want to make it clear I did pose questions and have yet to get responses to some of them. I did ask originally, what do the arms do? Clearly i believe they should pull. And if anyone disagrees that is fine but m...

Re: Should you pull at take off?

Sorry for not responding sooner. I am enjoying all the comments on this thread, I've just been busy with work the past few days. No real off season for me. The gals doing the zero drills are tucking both legs to aid the inversion. If they tried the same drill with a long sweep leg the pole would not...

Re: Should you pull at take off?

Ok, I would like to bring up a few points and address a few comments. One, what muscle group is doing most of the work off the ground in the vault, the answer, the lats. They are working and responsible for most of the vaulter's ability to clear bars above their grip. In fact more than a giant I wou...

Should you pull at take off?

Ok so obviously there is a lot of debate about technique. I even hear some coaches out there professing that they coach the Petrov/Bubka model, but then they talk about pushing/blocking at take off. Other coaches out there love the swing, but really say nothing about what the arms should be doing. I...

Re: Let's Talk About The Real Issue!

Not only do I agree with everyone here, but to top it, the new box collars are not available yet. No one can get one to you until November or December the earliest, so this means that many athletes will not have any experience with them until a meet. I don't think it is a great idea for athletes to ...

Re: pushing back out during the swing?

Ok, this will be my last post on this topic. If everyone recalls my original post I wrote this acronym, KISS. I really feel like a lot of people on this site have been over-complicating things. Note that even though I may not agree with Maury (AVC) but he at least gave his onion in the shortest and ...

Re: pushing back out during the swing?

I honestly don't post much but here goes. KISS, If you want to go up, why would you down swing? You have a limited amount of time to get your body from take off to a clearance so why downswing, and why not pull? Wouldn't that accelerate your swing and assist you in moving your body quicker? Also kee...
