Good arm speed too just capitalizes on it (like good bat speed! :) ) just like any sport... Leg muscles, hips thats where power comes from.


Kelly's exactly right. I played baseball as well, and I feel I have a pretty big arm. It's because baseball(and Softball)players understand how to use their lower body. When we swing a bat, it's the exact same motion as throwing a disc. You transfer the weight from back to front and then rotate the hips, with the arm coming through last, like a rubber band affect. One thing I think is severley overlooked is the importance of balance during a throw. Balance is key to being accurate with the disc and that comes from a strong core. It allows you to use maximum effort while being accurate. That's why a lot of begginners struggle with distance, beause the harder they try the poorer their mechanics become, and the worst their results become.That's why baseball and softball players pick up the game so quick(Des Reading is a good example. She was college softball player at UNI). We have developed the proper lower body muscles along with a strong core and hips, and that allows us to transition to the sport faster than others.

Don't you fly off the teepad when you're done throwing?

True. However, whether I maintain balance after the disc has left my hand makes no difference. I feel at the point of release I have excellent balance.

p.s. Mike, I only use the run up at Eastern.
