I’m hoping you’ll see this and reply or this thread is open to anyone else involved in the Scottish Highland Games.
I started throwing about six months ago (albeit with a few months break during the holidays) and while all my other events are coming up nicely, I seem to have developed a poor technique in the HWD. My pendulum is good but I’m having trouble really getting a good arch and I always do a ‘stutter step’ with my left foot instead of letting my right foot come forward/across first.
My fellow throwers have tried to give me every bit of advice they can and nothing seems to work and I somehow picked this stupid step up out of no where.
For some reason, the 28# isn’t giving me near as much trouble and without any weight, I can perform the movement perfectly. But the 42# (I’m in the 190 class) is really lagging.
I’d appreciate any drills or tips that you or anyone else has.
