4 Key Elements To Throwing Faster And Harder.
With any rotational based sport or activity, the ability to control your limbs and joint positions in space while resisting changes in position differentiate the 'good' movers from the 'great'. High movements speeds, limited amounts of ground contact time (GCT) and a major redirection of force vectors all play a factor in the endeavour for faster shots & throws. Taking sporting skill/technique variables out of the equation, possessing enough strength, stability, mobility and proprioceptive control allows us to maximize the generation and transfer of force throughout the window in which the skill takes place. These four components all contribute differently to the overall equation of throwing harder, faster and further. Let's dive into each and explore why they're important.
Factor 1 - Strength
