Mobility is one of the biggest problems average throwers struggle with. Lack of hip mobility and shoulder mobility prevent throwers from reaching the necessary positions in the circle. This program is aimed at solving that problem, and will improve your mobility while building size. Lengthening is strengthening. Muscle mass is gained when the muscle fibers are under tension. The longer they are under tension and the greater range of motion achieved, the greater ability the muscle will have to grow. And guess what? More muscle mass equals greater strength which equals further throws! Don’t neglect the most overlooked aspect of throws training, but use mobility to slap on more lean mass!
The Throws U Elite Training Program for shot put and discus throwers is a pre-made program written exactly like the programs we make for our national and world-class throwers, from the high school to post-collegiate level.
