Re: Video Review

That video with the "ostrich run" is super helpful I'm definitely going to incorporate it into my run hopefully that gives me some more control down the runway leading to a better vault. I get what you're saying about the swinging haven't done it enough for it to be second nature. Thanks f...

Re: Video Review
