Advanced Techniques for the Hammer and Weight Throw
with Larry Judge,
C.S.C.S., USA Track & Field National Chairman for Coaches Education (Throwing Events),
former University of Florida Women's Throws Coach
The hammer throw and weight throw are technically challenging events requiring great attention to detail. In this advanced presentation (part II of Mechanics for Weight and Hammer Throw), USATF Master Coach Larry Judge simplifies the complex technical issues. Judge's comprehensive presentation covers everything from a functional warm-up to release strategies and addresses some of the "finer technical points" that are a must for a championship performance. Judge includes drills for the winds, the entry, the work phases and the release. The purpose of each drill is thoroughly explained while precisely demonstrated by Olympians Candice Scott and Erin Gilreath. Judge includes meet footage of record-breaking throws in both events. Get inspired as you watch Olympic level athletes demonstrating drills and throwing in competition. Larry Judge has coached multiple record setters in the hammer and weight throw including the World Record weight thrower, the American Record hammer thrower, has developed eight Olympians, and coached over 100 All Americans!
