Wednesday is here. I can’t believe this week is flying by so fast.

 

 

I guess it really is true what they say. Time flies when you are having fun.

 

 

I have the most fun educating throwers and coaches how to be better at the shot, discus, hammer, and javelin. Training my throwers and the other athletes at Primal drives me to be the best at what I do.

 

 

And I love it. I am passionate about it. It’s what I do.

 

 

One of the first things I teach to a new athlete when they start training with me is the different variations of Olympic lifting with dumbbells and kettlebells.

 

 

Why??

 

 

It is faster for the new athlete to understand, teaches them how to use the whole body as one complete unit, and has the same awesome results as using the 45 pound bar.

 

 

Most importantly, the athletes gets to become stronger, more explosive, and faster using their hands and arms independent of one another. The same way throwers use one arm to launch a shot, throw a discus, or heave a javelin.

 

 

Check out the video below to learn more and check out the technique.

 

 

 

When you hit the weights today, throw in some one arm dumbbell cleans and snatches. Feel the difference when you move your entire body with the weight only in one hand.

 

 

That’s real functional training for a thrower.

 

 

I put out 5 new blog posts a week specifically for throwers. Make sure you check back in every day to learn more.
