Anybody know why that is?

With regards to the "lazy" - the technique when going left side first usualy involves taking off with the right leg.

As for speed vaults - perhaps you are taking off right leg/left hand?

I prefer not to categorise movements like this but maybe this clears things up?

Your both very lucky to have that skill already. I need to just take a day practicing/conditioning my other leg.

well i take off my left leg most of the time and vault with my left but there are days when i try to try get my movements with my other arm and leg as efficient as they are with my preferred arm and leg.

so far i am not successful lol.

i can use both, but which i use depends on the situation. how big th run up is and all that. my strongest leg is my right leg, tho that is also my weakest. so i keep my right leg as the swinging leg. but i try to work both where possible.
