Pole Vault: 8 Step Short Approach Take Off Drill
This is an 8 step short approach take off drill without a swing. What we're working on here is simply dropping the pole and planting the pole correctly at take off and we're looking for good posture with our body completely upright and tall it take off with our hands fully extended. The other thing we're focusing on with this drill is running into our right knee and leaving our trail leg back behind us creating an inverted c through the takeoff.
