Re: Run/Plant critique.

[quote="Cooleo111"]Fix your pole drop." I took your advice cooleo and I went to the track and did pole drop and slide box drills and It already feels much better! I still have some questions about the run though. I want to back up to a 7 left run but my timing feels off and I slow dow...

Re: Inconsistent vaults and top arm trouble.

Thanks for the advice and I agree. It's hard to fix it my takeoff because it feels natural to takeoff under but what can I do to help get a natural feel for taking off on my mark? I can easily do it when vaulting from 3 lefts or less but once I am going from 5,6,7 it is a lot harder to avoid.

Inconsistent vaults and top arm trouble.

Hi, I'm a first year college student, 18yrs. I have had some good progress over the few weeks. I kept getting "stuck in the bucket" and i fixed a vigorous top arm row which was a habit that was hard to break. However, it's not completely fixed and I still have issues with my top arm. When ...

Takeoff-swing connection

Hi, I'm a 14'0" vaulter doing smaller pole training this fall. I have gotten some really good help getting my takeoff better but I have a frustrating problem that I can't seem to fix. My problem is even when my takeoff is on my mark and I get a big C stretch my swing never takes my hips up. Ple...

Re: Hips getting stuck

Ok, thanks Kirk. So what drills do you recommend for the takeoff? And how do I know exactly when I've hit the inverse C or "stretch"?

Getting back to inversion- video review

Hi, I'm doing some fall vaulting with my coach and I have jumped about 5 or 6 times now. I haven't been on any big poles yet but I am having trouble with getting back to my inversion. I'm not sure why but I have having trouble finishing my vault after the swing. My hips stay low and I can't seem to ...

Re: Vault/swing critique

Ok I get what you're saying about the "C". What kind of practices or dills are there to work on these? I do a lot of bubkas usually I try and do 30-40 at the end of every practice but they I think these work on strength rather than technique. (At least how I do them, from a still hang). An...

Re: Vault/swing critique

Also Trey and Ben, you said something about the swing stopping once my feet get to my hands... How is to possible to swing past your hands? I try and avoid rowing to keep my top arm back or at least perpendicular to the ground so I have more room to swing but I don't get how you to swing further. Co...

Re: Vault/swing critique

Thanks to the reply from all three of you and sorry it took so long for a reply. I read your flagging out reply Kirk and I understand every point you are saying but I don't get why I'm leaving my pole at the top. Am I a special case? Can any of you guys let me know know from this video why my pole m...
