    Any shot put coaches out there?


    My school does not have a coach on staff for me to get technique pointers from, so I was hoping someone here would be able to do that! I have videos of my throws and would love it to get pointers even just little things. Thanks!

    I also didn't know which thread to post this in sorry!

    I can help you with strength and conditioning for shot, but I think you should go to the USA track and field website/forum and see if you can find a coach or someone willing to help you out virtually there.

    Excellent suggestion. USATF doesn't have much for a forum, but M&F is decent

    I'd help, but I am a distance coach-not much use to you, unless you want to step it up to a real man's game

    Thanks for the suggestions guys. As for the distance running I will have to pass. I have this thing about cardio I don't really do it!

    That's okay-I am sure that you are a decent guy otherwise
    Seriously though, if you want to excel in throwing, you will need to incorporate SOME running-wind sprints, bounding, block starts

    Don't forget running ladders and cone drills.

    It is often overlooked, but good footwork is crucial to throwing well.

    I had not planned on doing sprints longer than 40
    Yards but should I do 100s as well?

    Not for shot per se, but hundos will also improve your 40. Just focus on an explosive start

    I'd add in some resistance based sprints (sleds, hills, band towing, etc.) prior to getting into 100's. These will improve your drive phase mechanics, which are most important for success in both the 40 and the 100m sprint.

    I have access to more than one prowler so that area is covered! Thank you!
