Re: loss of penitration with swing

Won't try to labor this too much more as a lot has already been written. What I will simply note is from what I've read is Enloe is so fixated on the position at take off. Which is so important and essential, but it can't be treated as a "phase". There are no phases in vaulting only conti...

Re: loss of penitration with swing

I like your spunk! And I would hope that you would have just as much spunk in talking to your coach as in talking with us. Let's break this down, point by point ... my confidence is not my problem. I am going to hit the pole has hard as i can everytime and i land safely. OK, fair enough. To explain...

Re: loss of penitration with swing

You need to be patient with results and make sure you are landing deep in the pit for your safety. :yes: Enloe, I'm in synch with Grandevaulter on all his points. It's not just for safety that you should strive to land mid-pit. It's also a confidence builder. Once you become confident that you'll l...

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 b...

Re: loss of penitration with swing

Vaquest hit what I was going to say. No jump at takeoff. Think about doing a layup in basketball. If you don't jump up, you will never get the ball in the hoop. You can fix this with a couple of drills. String up a bungee at about nine feet in the air and work on run with trying to touch the bungee...

Re: loss of penitration with swing

so by letting my left arm bend i will drive my chest more, swing longer and faster, and end up on top of the pole? Yes! Focus on your chest --- not on your bottom arm. To swing longer and faster, you should also do lots of highbar work. I agree with Charlie. And with Vquest. You may have to use lig...

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!!!!! what about ...
