Drill #1 Non-Reverse Standing Throw
Followed By a Reverse Standing Throw
1.) Feet are placed shoulder width apart with the left toe splitting the middle of the right foot. 2.) Thrower transfers 80% of bodyweight onto the ball of the right foot, with the torso rigid and hips under the thrower. Right toe should be pointing towards the 11.00 o’clock position in the ring with the back of the ring being 12.00 o’clock. (Show a big right leg)
3.) Thrower takes the Discus through a long circular motion that ends at a High Point about the 6.00 O’clock position. (Front of ring).
4.) The Discus will swing down to the low point (12.00 o’clock position) where the right foot, right knee, right hip begins its rotational motion. The right leg action is a strong turn and moderate lift at the finish of the throw. The eyes and head is level throughout the throw.
5.) The strong drive of the right hip at low point will cause separation between the hips and upper body creating a long whiplash like motion that will end in a release with the shoulders square to the field.
6.) The hand is flat at release with the thumb down on the discus. The discus rolls off the index finger causing the discus to spin clockwise. The left arm finishes level and holds the left side square at release. The discus is slapped towards the field rather then being lifted like the finish in the shot.
7.) The Non-Reverse Standing throw the right leg stays down in the middle of the ring.
The Reverse standing throw that follows the Non-Reverse is the same movements except the right leg will replace the left leg at the front of the ring.

Drill#2 Non-Reverse ½ Turn or Triple ½
Turn Followed By a Reversed ½ Turn.
1.) Starting with the right foot in the middle with the right toe facing towards the left sector line and the left foot starting at the full throw starting position.
2.) The right foot will turn as the left pushes off slightly

    The overarm throw is a skill frequently used in a wide range of sports such as cricket,softball and baseball. The action is also used in athletic activities such as javelin, with the overhead serve and smash in tennis, volleyball and badminton and passing a netball and basketball.An overarm throw is the action of the arm swinging backwards then upwards, as the elbow moves close to ear level, leading the throw forward a step is taken with the foot opposite the throwing arm, during the throw, body rotates to face forward and body weight transfers from back to front foot, the elbow then straightens before release, with throwing arm reaching forward and downward in a follow through. There are four mandatory movements involved an overarm throw.These include standing positionPlayer stands with one leg infront of the other,the process of bringing back the ball- player brings back the ball towards their ear slightly rotating the lower part of the body,throwing the ball-player uses maximum strength to throw the ball extending the arm and flexing the back leg and lastly ending in a follow through- back leg ends in a plantar flexion, arm is now inferior to the shoulder.There are many major bones, muscles,joints and joint actions used to perform this skill. Bones range in different shapes and sizes a feature which allows them to perform specialised functions.The main types of bones are long bones which are longer than they are wide and they function as levers, short bones which have a short axis and are found in small spaces and transfer forces and lastly flat bones which consist of a broad surface and serve as places of attachment for muscles also protecting vital organs.Bones provide a steady structure to the body and only move due to muscles pulling them often rapidly through specific positions enabling activities such as the…

    Double Cork 1260 Essay

    • 6 Pages

    Shaun White made history in the 2012 Winter X Games by being the first person ever to land a Front Side Double Cork 1260 in the half-pipe competition (Bane). In simpler terms, the professional snowboarder completed two corked, or slightly tilted, flips while also making three and a half rotations. Considering the trick’s great difficulty, White earned a perfect score of 100 for being the first to conquer the maneuver. In order for someone to land this trick, they must first understand how it works. The key to mastering elite tricks like the Double McTwist 1260, the Front Side Double Cork 1260, and the Triple Cork 1440 is to master the four basic steps of each trick: the takeoff, completing the spins, finding the landing, and landing.…

    Medicine Ball Throw

    The action all starts in the torso of the body, the abdomen area. The torso will mostly be neutral during the activity used mostly for static strength. You will experience some flexion within the rectus abdominis and the external oblique. If you rock back to gain momentum for the throw you will feel a greater amount of flexion in these areas. Your shoulders and back will then begin firing to create the force to throw the ball. Your latissimus dorsi will contact along with your deltoid and trapezius. This will create the lateral abduction of the shoulder. Another muscle you might think of as working here is the pectoralis major. This muscle has a lot to do with pussing things away from your body. Next your elbows will want to go from flexion to extension. This will happen in a very fast snapping motion where the triceps brachii flex and the biceps brachii now extend. As you throw the ball your wrist will naturally go from radial deviation to ulnar deviation, your hand will go from pronation to supination and you hands will also go from small flexion the large flexion. To perform these actions most all the muscles in the forearm, wrist, and hand perform some kind of flexion. If I write all this down we will be here all day. Some of the main muscles are the flexor carpi ulnaris, flexor carpi radialis, extensor carpi radialis longus, extensor carpi ulnaris, opponens pollicis,…

    Furthermore, the backhand throw is one of the simplest throws for right-handed people. It is the throw most people are all familiar with. The correct way to throw the disc for a right-handed person is this way. With your right hand, you position your fore finger, middle finger, ring finger, and pinky finger under the disc while your thumb is on top of the disc facing away from your body to the left. When throwing the backhand, you want to step foreword with your right foot and line it up with your pivot foot, (left foot), or place your right foot further ahead of your pivot foot for a stronger throw. You want to swing your right hand, the hand with the disc, back around to the left of you body for a very good wind up. Then bring your right hand back to the front of your body and with a little flick of the wrist release the disc from your hand for a nice, clean throw. It is good to flick your wrist a little bit because it puts spin on the disc. The more spin on the disc, the less wobbly the throw will be and the further and better throw will be. And make sure you are putting effort and force…
