If you received the newsletter on Sunday, you read that the emphasis of this blog will be switching from throwing form and technique to training ideas and technique.
It’s the preseason. Not a lot of throwing technique questions are coming in. This is crunch time. Now is the time when you should be in the weight room working on your strength and conditioning getting as strong and explosive for the upcoming indoor season.
I am releasing a new e-Book sometime this week. The book is called “The ULTIMATE Off Season Training Program for Throwers.” This book is a full 13 week training and conditioning program 100% mapped out for you to follow along and get you in crazy shape for track season.
In this book, all you need are the basics: Squat Rack, Bar, Plates, Dumbbells, Bench, and a Pull Up Bar.
One of the exercises you will be doing is a Goblet Squat. This is a great exercise for throwers. It loads the squat in the front of the body and gets you to sit back farther. This opens up the hips, stretches the hamstrings more, and makes you keep your core very tight. Check out the video below to learn more.
So there you have it. You should try implementing these into your current training plan. You will feel the benefits of sitting back farther and your low back and legs will thank you for it.
The book drops in a few days. I put my all into writing this and I hope you take advantage of it. As soon as it goes live on the site, I will be announcing it to my newsletter list so make sure you enter in your e-mail address on the right to sign up.
