Pole Vault: 6 Step Top Hand Swing Drill
This is a 6 step top hand swing drill. The athlete is learning how to keep pressure with their top hand throughout the entire vault. Notice good extension of the right hand above the head on takeoff and a drive into that right knee. From that point the athlete is learning how to keep pressure and swing on that right hand taking the right hand to their left toe.
