When younger athletes start to throw, many start with the glide shot…
… it does look easier to start with, and it can be, however, it is the most unforgiving if you want to continue with it at a higher level.
At the pro level, there are almost no gliders anymore, but that is another topic as to why for another day.
The key to smashing the finish of the glide shot is to set up the chain reaction of this throw the right way!
Learn the TCR® system of course 😉
But truthfully, the key is setting up an effective Pillar 1 and Pillar 2, and in this short video I pulled a clip from training the other day with one of my first-year gliders.
He was setting up his Pillar 1 incorrectly, which changes the CM (center of mass) so that each time he tries to pull in and kick, he begins to fall off balance, instead of loading and setting his body into a dynamic position.
It’s always about the Throwing Chain Reaction®.
Learn it right the first time, and spend less time correcting the mistakes.
Have a great Friday and Glide on!!
