With John Frazier,
University of Tennessee Women's Throws Coach
John Frazier provides you with 25 proven tips and drills that you can easily incorporate into your program for successful shot putting! Beginning with the basics, Coach Frazier shares drills for the pivot progression and the power position. The throw progression contains the stand-throw (non reverse), extend-throw-step over, reverse-stand-throw and full-reverse-stand-throw. The focus on the throw is on the legs, not the upper body. Using the med ball, Frazier teaches the two-handed stand throw. Back of the ring teaching comes from the slide technique. Drills include the walking glide drill, walk-power position, backward hop drill, unseating drill and the hip switch drill. The next drill series is the three count drills. The stop and go drill teaches young athletes to feel their body weight over their right leg in a good power position. The next progression is the three-count glide drill. The full throw comes together with the full glide with a reverse. Frazier present some excellent slide drills for beginners starting with the left leg hang drill. Others include the pivot square drill, repeat half turns, ballerina drill and wall kicks. The two basic starts are both demonstrated - the active and static starts. All drills are put together in the full rotation technique.
