Re: Tall female vaulter and the swing

Altius: I suppose I should have been more clear. Being a foot under is not typical of my vaulter. This is just the video I had handy at the time.

Right, I know she was a little under on that vault. I can identify the issues, but was just curious if anyone had anything innovative they do to work on increasing swing speed. We do ring work when we can, but do not have access to a high bar. We also do core work such as leg raises frequently as I ...

Tall female vaulter and the swing

I am working with a fairly tall female vaulter who has hit a plateau in the development of her swing. She is consistently unable to get inverted before the pole Unbends.

windy conditions

It is really hard to get a correct mark for my steps in head and tail wind and crosswinds just seem impossible. I was wondering if anyone has some advice for deali...
