Throwing techniques

Backhand Standstill

COURSE DESCRIPTION

In this course, we talk about the basics of backhand throw and how to throw a backhand from a standstill position. We build the base for a successful backhand throw by laying the foundation from the ground up. We learn how to use our lower body and hips to produce the power for the throw itself and we look at some common mistakes, so you have some frame of reference when practicing the full motion of a standstill backhand throw. We look through the basic grips of backhand throw and learn how to build your grip the right way. We discuss separating the upper and lower body and go through the basics of arm swing and power pocket. We also see what kind of follow through you should have to produce the best result and protect us from injury. We talk about the accelerating speed and relaxed but controlled motion of the throw. We build the whole motion and use exercises to drill in the motions to produce an accurate and repeatable backhand standstill throw.

This is a basic course so it contains a lot of information and many different building blocks for the right chain of motions. There are no movements in real life that can be compared to a backhand throw so we build the motions from the ground up. Be patient, and practice the individual parts before moving forward. This will result in a more efficient, accurate, and safe way to throw a backhand shot.
