Pole Vault: Jogging Four Step Pole Drop Drill

This is a jogging 4 step pole drop drill, a drill used for the pole vault. This is simply a progression from the walking drill, and is essential for all beginning level pole vaulters. You can see here that as the athlete takes their first step, the pole is immediately beginning to drop, getting the pole in a parallel position just before their second to last step with the right hand moving directly up the side of the body from the right hip up through the athletes right ear. Once again it's really important to have both hands fully extended above the athletes head as the tip of the pole hits the ground. The other part of this drill is making sure that the athlete drives the right knee to a parallel position on take-off.
