Hey guys as the captain of my throwing team im pretty much going to be the head of the practices every day. When the season starts up it will be easy because we can just throw every day or 3 times a week and then either lift on those days or the other days.
Right now its the “tryout” period for about 2 weeks. Yesterday i ran a decent tryout but to me it was missing something. Here’s what we did:
- 4 lap warm up around field
- some stretches/calisthenics (toe touch, BW Squats, push ups, situps, arm circles)
- threw 8 and 6 pound medicine balls (through the legs, over the head, pushing with legs like a chest pass)
- Standing long jumps
- walking lunges
there were about 12 or so kids yesterday. 20 have signed up so im not sure how many we will have tomorrow.
Does anyone have any good drills/indicators for throwing shot put and discus (or just good calisthenic drills in general)?
thanks in advance
