Today I am going to a local high school to talk to their wrestling team about training this fall at Primal. As I was thinking about what I am going to say, it dawned on me.
Wrestling season here in RI is only 11 weeks away. That means indoor track season is only 11 weeks away.
That’s not a lot of time. If you haven’t been throwing or practicing your technique, you better start soon.
If you haven’t been lifting or doing any weight room training, you better start ASAP.
If you haven’t even thought about throwing since the end of track season last year, you are WAY behind.
Get on it. I have a great book launching this weekend that is a complete off-season training routine for throwers. Lifting, plyometrics, and grip training.
All laid out for you. All you have to do is follow along step by step and write down your results.
Stay tuned this Sunday for the official announcement to the newsletter recipients. If you haven’t signed up for the newsletter, you better get on it.
Today’s post and video is all about using the entire circle for the glide technique. I always see beginner throwers, guys and girls, being told by their coaches to start all the way in the back of the circle.
I’m talking freshmen girls who are only 5 feet tall. Shorter guys who can only glide through half the circle. And the coach wants their toe all the way up against the ring?
It’s not fair, it’s not realistic, and it is actually hurting their distances and their throws. Watch the video below to learn more.
So there you have it. I am traveling this weekend down to New Jersey for a clinic. Even though I am leaving late tonight, I will still do a blog post for you tomorrow to make 5 for the week.
I love doing these posts and helping out throwers. Make sure you spread the word to the throwers you know. Like the YouTube videos on Facebook, ask your questions, and click the Facebook “like” button to the right.
I hope I get to answer your questions soon on this blog.
