Floor Drills

Unread postby Kayantonio13 » Mon Feb 01, 2016 4:50 pm

So I'm a collegiate pole vaulter(female) and my school doesn't have a pit for me to practice on. I'm hoping there anyone who would be able to give me any drills that I could do that don't have the need for a pit to land in. I'm going at this alone since I'm at a D3 school and don't have a PV coach on hand to help me out.

I don't know many drills you could do but in any case where I'm not able to go to a pit I find any highbars I can get to and do drills such as these.

Ever since I started doing these drills I've seen improvement in not only my swing technique but my invert as well. The workout helps focus on keeping the trail leg straight and whipping it forward while getting a minor upper body workout.
Hope this helps a little bit
