What Do You Get?
The Throws U Elite Training Program for shot put and discus throwers is a specialty built program written exactly like the programs we make for our national and world-class throwers, from the high school to post-collegiate level.
Stop guessing on what you should be throwing! We will provide you with the optimal implement weights to throw, the types of throws to take, and how many throws to take per session. We have specific prescriptions for shot and disc throwers, shot only, and disc only throwers.
Our strength program will build you incredible strength with exercises and set/rep schemes that we have tested and proven on our national and world-class throwers. The strength program follows our yearly periodization scheme to optimize your development at each stage in the year.
Every world-class thrower is proficient in the Olympic lifts. We incorporate the snatch, clean, and jerks into our programs as the primary method of developing explosive power while fine-tuning your technical ability, mobility, and balance.
Special strength is our term for drills and strength exercises that correlate directly to the throw. Discover new exercises that will improve your technique while simultaneously building strength.
Improving mobility is one of the underutilized aspects of training among throwers. Improve your range of motion and power output with our thrower specific mobility exercises. In addition, we provide warmups for both throwing and lifting!
With the spring season is underway, it is the point in the year where throwers need to be developing speed, body awareness, and explosiveness to be in the best shape possible in the circle. That’s where plyometrics come into play. Plyos take the raw explosiveness of the athlete and transform it into functional movement. The better throwers become at making controlled and precise movement during the plyometrics in training, the better they will transfer those skills to the circle. This program is filled with plyometrics not only for the lower body but the upper body also. Along with our primary strength movements and throws, this program will get you feeling like an athlete and start smashing throws in competition.
Each program you buy fits precisely into our yearly plan
We design each of our programs based on our yearly periodization chart. Our periodization plan follows an undulating volume/intensity curve that we have dubbed “Parabolic Periodization”. The plan will take you through the pre-season and competitive season for the typical high school and collegiate track season in the United States.
In Parabolic Periodization, as volume raises, intensity lowers, and vice versa. This allows recovery and adaptation to occur in one system while the other system continues to develop. At the beginning of the year and off-season, training trends towards higher volume. Conversely, towards the end of the year and the competitive season, training trends towards higher intensity before the final peak in preparation for championship season.
