Fremd HS (IL) Head Boy's Track Coach

Beginning with the basics of throwing, three things affect the implement distance - height of release, angle of release and speed of release. The key elements are the speed of the release and the summation of forces, which uses big muscles before smaller muscles; leg muscles are the driving force in this technique. Aikens begins by demonstrating two stretches that should be used prior to throwing. He also includes other stretches to help the back, upper back, shoulders, hamstrings and buttocks. Aikens demonstrates the full body throw, emphasizing the arm and wrist flick. Aikens covers the difference between a rotational and glide thrower, and identifies why many throwers prefer the rotational throw. Aikens provides 14 drills, which includes drills specific to coming out of the back of the ring and transitioning from the back of the ring to the middle. Drills include hands on hips, double pivot, crunch, step through, South African, med ball throw, South African with shot, step around, unit turn, quarter turns, the 360 drill, and more! This excellent DVD concludes with advanced teaching points for experienced throwers. 63 minutes. 2007. DVD.
