Ultimately wanted to be able to perform the below movement as well as possible. From a strength/mobility POV, can anyone advise routines/exercises/“keep-in-minds” that could be helpful when performing this movement?
I guess it has some parallels to a baseball pitch. The differences as far as I can see are:
- You generate speed of throw by running up to the mark
- The arm is not allowed to bend as it does in a baseball pitch
- The arm generally has to come down from above (like a windmill)
- When you land (and release the ball) the front leg arrests your momentum and almost turns you into a catapult (though some ‘pitchers’ don’t rely on that bracing movement)
