Work on Linear Direction with Your Throwers!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Wednesday, July 1, 2015

If your throwers are struggling to get their momentum moving in a single direction during their tosses, look no further than these drills from University of Akron throws coach Brian Forrester. The “Walking Pivot” and “Float/Float Sting” drills are designed to help athletes get their release straightened up.

Walking Pivot & Float/Float Sting

Drill Summary: In the Walking Pivot, athletes set up in position 2, load their left knee, step in with a pre-cocked right foot and do a wheel drill over the top. Continue to do this going forward in a straight line. For the Float/Float Sting, set up in position 2 once again, shuffle step with the left foot twice, then execute a Sting. After doing one rep, return to the starting position and repeat.

Keys to the Drill:

1) Load the left knee.
2) Pre-cock the right foot.
3) Good posture.
4) Get things moving in the same direction.

Improve Your Shot Put by Mastering the “Simon Says” Drill

By nate.landas - Last updated: Wednesday, October 1, 2014

Brian Forrester, the University of Akron Throws Coach, shows you a drill that takes all of the concepts and drills, and combines them to challenge the athlete. Coach Forrester explains that the more advanced the athlete, the more advanced the drill can be.

Simon Says

Setup: The athlete starts in the beginning position for the shot put in the ring. The coach tells the athlete a specific position or drill. The athlete listens to the coach, and quickly accomplishes the drill. This is a good drill to simulate the reaction time a thrower has in competition.
