November 20, 2009, Newsletter Issue #109: Shot Putters Need More Than Big Biceps

Tip of the Week

A beefy upper body is not a prerequisite for shot put success. Strong legs and a strong core put the “kinetic chain” in motion and propel the shot forward. When working on leg strength, remember to work opposing muscle groups equally. For example, try to lift similar amounts of weight with both the quads and the hamstrings. Keeping the opposing muscle groups at a similar strength will help your shot put form.
