Discus PR for me last night

Postby Twister » Tue Jul 15, 2003 3:18 am

I was reading on here that the discus is a "feel" thing. Last night I threw a 97-4 and when I let go of it I felt like I had throw a paper plate. The discus came out of my hand correctly and actually looked "pretty" while in flight. Only thing I wonder is how many throws are too many? I threw about 30 last night. Not all with the spin. Some up to the end of the circle working on the weight transfer from leg to leg. This discus thing is getting to be fun and somewhat addictive when done correctly. Now if I was more consistent when the shot put.

I , personally, do not thing that that is too many. When I threw discus I would take around 30-40 throws and I had a history of injury to my shoulder. You should be okay.

Awesome on the PR! I throw discus 40-50 times/session and I start getting pooped 1/2 way, then when I'm really pooped towards the very end, sometimes things all fall in to place and I get my best throw of the day.

Well done on the pr, I used to find that the best throws felt the easiest, well until I gave up for 10 years, now when I have no technique the best throws are the ones that hurt the most.

Number of throws - John Powell in the Dr Disc part of his video mentions when Ludvik Danek came to his town. John asked what it took to throw far, the answer was 10,000 throws a year which equates to 50 throws a session, 4 times a week.


You can get the Powell and Wilkins videos from http://www.mfathletic.com/

The Ames public library has some videos and Alan Russell has offered to lend me his.

Not to depress you but check out http://danjohn.org/discusthrowing.html
and The Lost John Powell Information, last time I did 100 throws I strained my bicpes tendon and tore the skin off my fingers :)

Dan's a nice guy and has some great stuff on his site.
