I decided to join the track team mid-season this year just to see what it was like. I’ve been wanting something to focus my working out at (started lifting this past September). I really like discus, though I am not anywhere near good yet. I am a junior, and can throw 60-70 feet (though I’ve only done it for a few weeks). Now that track is over, I want to focus all my training at getting better at discus.
I am willing to devote 5-6 hours a week to training and want to make the most of my time. I am wondering what a good training program, diet, etc… would be suitable for me for the 6 months of the off-season.
I am also wondering the possibilities of how much is feasible for me to improve my throwing distance in that time. I am going to buy a discus soon. Help would be appreciated, and if you would like to know anything else, just ask.
