what is an astride vault

it is part of my gymnastics project

im pretty sure its a straddle vault which is a non rotational vault where you run upto the vault, take off on the beat board, your hands land on the vault, your legs to split into the straddle position over the top of the vault, and then you push off the vault from your hands and land on the matt in front of the vault with your feet never touching the vault.  this can also be performed as a layout straddle/asride that your body stays in the layout position while your butt is being lifted above your shoulders and only goes into straddle at the last second rather than straddling as soon as your hands hit the vault.  hope that helps.

actually its a progression step to a straddle (as described above) where your feet land on the vault apart.  there are some really good pics on here about how to perform it.
