Upcoming competition has a 56lb weight throw for distance, any technique. Hoping Dan John and others can comment on what they think the best technique should be. So far I’ve been training with my kettlebell by swinging it and launching it backwards over my head… best throw tonight was 18’.
Well, I can only comment on the HG technique- one hand on the weight, do spins to build up momentum (slightly similar to a discus) then let fly.
Some importnat aspects of this throw include waiting for the weight to come around- don’t pull too ealry- and making sure you stay low.
How you do your spins will depend on the distance and shape of your approach area, assuming there is one.
