Pavlovian Training For Shot Putters & Discus Throwers

Hello Nation,

In the coming weeks we will be talking about the Arete Throws Nation approach to weight training and throws training in the off-season.

One such concept is the idea of training a conditioned response. Like Pavlov’s Dog.

As coaches and throwers we want to make sure we don’t lose sight of the goal of the weight training portion of training.

Why do we lift?

… To help us throw farther!

Therefore, throwing farther is the goal, and training to be more powerful, faster, and more coordinated is what the lifting focus is really about

…. Not just pure strength.
