The throwing circle is where some of the strongest people on the team reside. Shotput and discus require all around strength and power in the lower and upper body. You must use your entire body as a system and give 100% effort on every throw. Why would your lifting program be any different? This program will focus on strength and power to get your squat, bench, deadlift, and push jerk as strong as possible. It will also focus on adding explosiveness to your hips allowing you to move through your spin faster and put more force into the throw. Throwers are the most powerful athletes on the team so it's time to train like one.
