    Just curious on the theory of gliders reach advantages at release over spinners. Is this due to, in the cased of perfected technique for both styles, 1) a biomechanical disadvantage from one style(glide) compared to the other(spin) maybe visa versa or 2) lack of technical perfection for those who use the spin?
    Does it have something to do with the end goal of where optimum direction we want the ball to land?

    Your thoughts??

    Thank you Kevin...that was a positive post and actually had IDEAS and expressed throwing thoughts! I'm curious ( as an avid Power Lifter myself) why the sumo deads? I think I get it it but want to hear your version.

    Reminds me of a conversation I had w Mac Wilkens at iron Works Gym in SJ. Mac squatted power style (although wearing Oly shoes) and did deadlifts. He had seen me deadlifting many times before and sat down and asked me why I did them. I told him that I never bend my legs like a squat when I throw but that is more like a deadlift, especially from the power position on up through the release. Throwing was more "back" than leg. That deadlifts mimicked the power position. He smiled and said that is what he believed too, or words to that effect. Is this something like the sumo is for you?

    Ron,
    I feel like the Sumo DL works the hip region a lot better than then conventional. Will help with the lateral push from the middle of the circle out. I also feel like, as wussy as they sound, abductor and adductor machines go hand in hand with this. Hip health, flexibility, mobility, and strength are a main concern. Sumo deads also help boost my squat, as well. Lastly, they break the monotony of just doing regular ol' conventionals!
