Hi Everyone,

 

 

Sorry for the late blog post today. I am in NJ at an awesome coaching and business seminar. I always invest in my education so I can bring the most up to date and best content to all of you.

 

 

I love you guys and appreciate so much that you come here to read this blog and watch my videos.

 

 

Make sure you sign up to the newsletter over to the right————————->

 

 

This seminar has given me so many new ideas that I will be releasing on Sunday when I send out my weekly newsletter.

 

 

Make sure you sign up. I hate spam and don’t send things every day. The people who have already signed up know that what I share is 100% free information that is beneficial for your training and coaching.

 

 

On to today’s blog post and video. Today is all about staying low in the middle of the glide shot put and keeping your throwing trajectory at the correct angle.

 

 

In beginners, there is a lot of emphasis on using the entire circle and getting your body moving backwards super fast and low.

 

 

This sometimes causes a “hump” in the middle of the throw and knocks the smoothness and trajectory out of whack. Watch the video below to learn more.

 

 

 

 

 

So there you have it. You need to start a little higher until you get the idea about sucking that leg under you and keeping the back low. Once you get the idea, you can start to lower your body position every so often until you are able to produce the most power to that throw.

 

 

Sunday I will be sending out that weekly newsletter to everyone on the mailing list. If you aren’t on that list, you will seriously be missing out on some huge announcement.

 

 

Talk to you on Sunday.

 

 

Thanks,

 

Coach Matt Ellis

  • Hi my name is Chandler. I’m a freshman in high school, and I use the glide technique. My personal best throw is 44’11. I was wondering which angle of my body should be as I’m bending on the knee and pushing off with the left leg. Please answe back and thank you
