Vault Landing Drill
This week's gymnastics technique video focuses on vault. During podium training of the 2010 NCAA gymnastics championships, I saw the UCLA girls doing this vault drill at the end of their vault rotation and asked UCLA vault coach Chris Waller about it.
They place the beatboard on top of the vault and a springboard on top of that. The idea is to make it more accurately simulate flying off the table in a vault so that the gymnasts can work on their landings.
