Quote from Tony CiarelliDisplay More
The best throwers I have ever coached were by far the strongest that I have coached, but they also had the best technique. At the high school level I have never coached an athlete that got to strong and everyone I have coached got better when they got stronger. All of the open athletes I have coached so far also threw farther when they got stronger, but most of them came to me with just average strength, and by no means did they get to the high end of the strength scale for their event.
The key I think is the time spent in the weightroom trying to get strong versus the time in the ring trying to throw farther and also the time spent training as campared to the time spent in recovery.
Can you be to strong? Practically speaking I think all of us can go back to our own throwers that we have coached and answer this question for ourselves.
