Re: 6 LEFT PRACTICE(with better angle + quality)

yeah it may most likely be because of my crappy late plant and from gymnastics twice a week. its been ripping and bleeding alot. i do use chalk alot when i vault.i just try to wrap it and keep it clean after and let it heal for a few days before i repeat the process again.

head/eye placement during the takeoff and drive

pushing back out during the swing?

hey guys , there is one single problem with my vault, when i swing i dont push back out with my left arm. vaulters such as brad walker and lavillenie do this quite well and i have been told it helps move the pole to verical and compress it as well. brad walker: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=reW-fem...

Re: Not getting vertical

just do alot more of gymnastics! i had alot of trouble at this stage too. even handstands help. you have to get more comfortable with being upside down and you will definitely start to get more and more inverted. p.s make sure your elbow comes inside the bend of the pole!
