Design a step-by-step shot put drill program that will benefit your program!

Craig Carter, a two-time NCAA All-American in the weight and hammer throws, reveals the unique drills and strength workouts that have made the University of Arizona a national leader in the shot put. Along with two-time Olympian Jill Camarena-Williams, Coach Carter shows how to develop drills and workouts to improve throwers in the glide and the spin.

Coach Carter demonstrates how to teach the power position that will ensure your athletes can execute the proper "kinetic chain" to get their whole body into their throws, while remaining under control.

Medicine Ball and PUD Drills - Carter demonstrates and explains multiple weight throws to develop and improve both specific strength and explosive speed for the shot.

Core Training Drills - Using multi-plane workouts, Carter explains the importance of training balance and strength in all parts of the body and in all planes of movement. This often overlooked aspect of training is invaluable in building strength and in injury prevention.

Throwing Lead-Up Drills - With almost a dozen separate drills, you will learn how to establish balance and footwork in ring. Using both the rotational and glide approach, Carter emphasizes footwork, body position and body awareness in a series of drills that can be used both to teach and re-enforce proper throwing technique.

Technical Throwing - Over a dozen separate drills to help you fine tune technique, correct common errors and re-enforce shot put technique.

Carter provides a clear understanding of how the athlete will benefit from each drill. He also gives you the cues he uses to teach each drill and his personal coaching tips to maximize its benefit in the ring. Carter does an outstanding job of connecting how each drill will help the thrower in competition.

Mega Drills for the Shot Put is jam packed with over 100 minutes of great strength drills, teaching progressions, and coaching tips that will add more distance to your throws. This DVD is perfect for the developing high school athlete, the college athlete looking to add distance to their throws, or the coach who wants to add powerful drills to their practice plan!
