Gradually increase the length of the approach run to develop the take off phase of the vault. Aim of this 4 stride approach drill is to develop the vigorous driving action of the free leg to take the vaulter in to the rock-back position.
Controlled running with the pole from transition of the high carriage position to the plant position.
The development of the flight phase as the vaulter pulls on the bar, begins a half rotation in the air, and finally pushes off the pole. Using an elastic bar can help boost confidence.
Rehearsal of the plant position which should high, fast and early. A 2 stride approach to the plant should give the vaulter the feeling of transferring body weight into the pole and test the position of arms at take off.
