Hey Reese, here's a couple items for discussion that apply to both the glide and spin practitioners. There's a YouTube video that compares early Brian Oldfield when he threw 75' to his later throws when his technique was changed and his distances decreased. Basically, from the power position in the early Brian period, he went vertical slightly before he began his turn into the launch. In his later period, when he wasn't throwing so far, he began his turn before going vertical. Another comparison between Oldfield's technique and today's throwers is this - Oldfield launched WITH BOTH LEGS pushing. Today, the coaches teach to only use the right leg to turn the hips into the throw and then use the blocking leg to go vertical. The result is that the right leg stays bent and never stretches out to help push against the ground to add power to the throw. Of course, since Brian Oldfield's time, no one has matched his throwing distances. His reasoning, I guess, was that you can generate more power and push velocity with TWO LEGS rather than just one leg. Another difference I noticed with Brian Oldfield was how DEEP he was in the squat position throughout the spin. Brian was down into an almost half squat whereas most throwers today are barely into a quarter squat with knees barely bent. Is that just laziness, poor technique or what?

This guy must have a very heavy right punch. Just think of the hundred times he keep on throwing that iron ball. It will develop a very strong spring-like push of his right hand. The shot put throw but using a kettle bell instead may help greatly in developing punching power.

I've gotta say, I actually threw almost 5 feet further after watching this video. I'm one of the shortest kids on my middle school track and field team, and I've never thrown very far, my best being 20 feet. Today I tried the reverse, and it legitimately helped. Honestly, thanks.
Nyan Islam (2 months ago)
Wait how do you do the reverse? In the video the ball just disappears
