Thanks for all for the great advice! I have been working with her on short approaches and focusing on swinging with a long body and keeping her head inline with the rest of her body.

Re: Vaulter Not Swinging Through and Dropping Shoulders

Thanks Kirk, I will let her discover the swing and invert on her own! And no pushing! Spotting YES. Pushing NO! Besides the safety issue (at higher heights), I don't think the vaulter gets the right feedback on her swing when you push her. She needs to discover this on her own, by trial and error. T...

Re: Vaulter Not Swinging Through and Dropping Shoulders

Re: Vaulter Not Swinging Through and Dropping Shoulders

Thanks, we will continue to do rope drills and focus on NOT dropping the head back. I had noticed she is throwing her head back and know that is not correct! The only drill I use with my vaulters is --rope drills with ankle weights-we stand with drive knee parallel and pull our HIPS to our top hand ...

Vaulter Not Swinging Through and Dropping Shoulders

Hello all, I am currently coaching a vaulter who is having trouble swinging all of the way through and dropping their shoulders. Here is a link to some photos of her vaults where you can see her hips are getting stuck below her shoulders: https://plus.google.com/photos/102173975699700762311/albums/5...
