Definition: Heel Drive
Posted by Gymnastics Zone
Heel Drive: Coaches use this term or correction to inform their gymnasts that they want them to drive their heels harder up and over on the front side of a handspring vault or front handspring on floor. Increasing heel drive creates more rotation and potential for block and power to be utilized on vault or tumbling.
