Strength Training for Throwers
and the lifts that add big distance
In this article, we’re going to go over strength training programs that focus on lifts that directly make a positive impact on an athlete’s ability to perform key throwing drills & technical positions.
Therefore, your strength training program will be designed to make you a better thrower.
The key is to do it right!
Lifting has to be purposeful.
For example, adding plenty of rotational core movements and unilateral lifts (single leg work) is important since there are 2 single support phases in the throw.
The Cumulative effects of better positions will add up quickly and give you the fast results you are working for.
This video (from 2016…. were we ever so young?) will give you an example of what lifts I’m referring to.
Check it out….
As you can see, your training program should be designed to support and build explosive, fast & dynamic movements as per each throwing event. It must be as technically focused as the biomechanics of each position.
In order for any athlete to achieve optimal sports performance and hit those monster throws, having the proper strength levels to train are a must!
Otherwise, drills will be performed inaccurately and the athlete will compensate positions needed to do in each technical movements, throwing off the throwing chain reaction.
