Mechanics of Throwing reviews the common characteristics that are involved in all of the throws events, as well as points out a few factors that are specific to each particular event. The DVD looks at the mechanics entailed in each event and explains how they can be altered to improve performance. The DVD also details the two factors that determine a throwers velocity-the most important factor to work on in an athlete's training regimen. In addition, the DVD covers how coaches can measure the velocity and angle of the throws of their athletes.

Among the topics covered:
  • Factors affecting distance
  • Equations of motion
  • Optimal angle in the shot put
  • Optimal angle in the discus
  • Optimal angle in the javelin
  • Building-up velocity
  • Measuring velocity and angle
