This is a swing machine drill used to teach pole vault athletes not to pull with her left hand. Notice here that the athlete is keeping their left hand extended and learning how to drive the right knee and effectively swing through their back leg. Focus on trying to keep the trail leg or a back leg behind and connect the right hand to the left hip by swinging and not pulling.
