Like I mentioned yesterday, there are a lot of throwing questions for me to answer and I will be making videos for the best questions that were sent to me by e-mail.
But before I get going on those questions, I need to follow up on a post from Friday. Friday you read about the glide shot put footwork and whether you should land with both feet at the same time in the power position.
There was some confusion and I don’t think I made myself clear enough in the video. So I wanted to take a second to clear up some of the confusion and answer the same question when it comes to the rotational shot. Watch the video below to learn more.
So as you can see, landing with both feet at the same time is not the way to do it. You need to land with the blocking foot touching the ground a split second after your power foot.
This will allow you to come out of that low, crouched position a little easier without sacrificing the ability to keep your weight back.
This was a great question. You can carry over this technique into the glide shot and the discus technique.
Until tomorrow, keep telling your friends, teammates, and coaches about www.PrimalATC.com. The easiest way?

Keep those questions coming. See you back here tomorrow.
