Rhythm & timing of a throw is critical to throwing the spin shot, glide shot and the discus throw.
When I’m out with my throwers, and we are working the 6 pillars of the throw, we’re not only work the right positions, but we’re also focusing that
the positions are optimal with the correct rhythm & timing!
Therefore, I don’t personally do a lot of static start drills or static throws.
Don’t get me wrong, they have a place in throws training….
but in my years of experience, if you’re not working on hitting the right rhythm & timing of the throw,
I think the thrower leaves a lot of results on the table.
I’ve talked about rhythm & timing of the throw before, however, it’s critical to success and often a big piece of what’s missing in many throws training programs.
Let’s dive into a video where I share a peek into a throws practice session with 2 of my athletes.
You’ll see in real time, how just focusing on rhythm and timing of a throw can make improvements right away!
So, enjoy this quick video…
… and don’t forget to work your rhythm: every session, every drill, for every pillar, pillar connection, and full throw.
Rhythm is a dancer… you can feel it! (obscure 80’s song reference, lol!) but it’s true.
Go with the flow of the throw,
