Re: loss of penitration with swing

If you run properly with longer strides with lift, you will automaticly be some what up and through the take off!!!! Stride that is shorter, even if its quicker is going to be flat through the take off!!!! Your BLOCK stops the SWING and pentatration! Bent arm PRESS support is by far superior to a bl...

Re: loss of penitration with swing

2 things----#1 do not block the left arm STRAIGHT(it keeps the chest from going through) keep the left arm BENT through the whole vault!! Don't really like dropping the head back (till your totally inverted) Fix those 2 things and you go a foot higher IMMEDIATELY!!!! Prove me wrong!!!!!

You people need to take up nitting! Your missing some CHARACTER!!! This comes from a vaulter that has been in the game for 60 years and CURRENTLY been an ALL AMERICAN for 42 YEARS IN A ROW and has had 60 HS State Champions in the LAST 6 years. These champions also did not come from clinics or camps(...

Re: GRV: Lavillenie - From Stall Swing to World Record

There is definitely NO PRESSING DOWN with the left hand, if he did he would be shot back the runway about 50ft.!!!!
