The Dash Vault is a simple and effective vault that provides new combinations of movements and creates fun new challenges in familiar spots. A version of hurdling over an obstacle but allowing

- Your speed will vary based upon the height of the obstacle you wish to vault. The higher the obstacle the faster the run and the takeoff jump will be further away from the obstacle. This will allow your body some time to effectively clear the obstacle.
Using a One Foot Takeoff?
- By driving your front knee toward and over the obstacle it allows an easy transfer of momentum. Turning your forward velocity into height. As well as setting your hips in the right position to successfully clear the obstacle. Be sure to jump forcefully off your back leg and throw your arms towards your desired landing zone. Also be sure to lean the chest back slightly or you will just jump over the obstacle without vaulting it.
- Chances are you are jumping too high. The higher the jump the more impact that will be felt on the descent. Rather than arcing your jumping, approach it like an arrow or bullet. Keeps hips gliding above the obstacle s surface. Also wrist impact lessens if hands can contact during the ascent of the approach rather than the descent.
Where do my hands go?
- Well make sure fingers are facing forward(the direction you want to go). This will also help with wrist pain. And palms are inline with hips as they clear the obstacle. Once hands have made contact, push the obstacle behind you to propel yourself forward and reset the chest back to an upright position.
