Texas A&M Assistant Coach Juan De La Garza delivers a comprehensive, step-by-step guide to the development of a total javelin athlete. This breakdown delivers what it takes to become a master of the javelin. This presentation is easy to follow and packed full of useful drills and exercises.
The training progressions demonstrated by Coach De La Garza will help your throwers become more comfortable and confident with the javelin and its demands. You will learn how to properly hold the javelin, how to flow into the jogging and withdraw phase, the mechanics of a proper run up, and the power position right before the delivery.
Once the basics have been covered, De La Garza shows you a series of developmental drills starting with pre-throwing stretches. You will be given a comprehensive list of throwing drills, medicine ball drills and circuits, along with a very unique set of wall rack drills. This is followed by some technique-specific Arm Ball and Hammer Drills to develop overall athletic conditioning. One last series of drills titled Moving with the Javelin shows reinforces the skills needed to succeed in this demanding event.
With over 60 drills and exercises, this DVD is loaded with instruction! The information presented is in a logical order and covers all areas of this specialized event.
