1) Start throwing!
The overhand throwing action, is the same action as a serve in tennis. The overhand throwing motion creates a kinetic chain of movements which replicate the tennis serve. Grab a family member, and head to your local park (with your 5kms) and start 5 metre apart and throw and catch.
Once warmed up:
- move further apart and attempt to throw and catch on the full.
- Throw as high in the air as you can for your partner to catch.
- Throw to the side to make your partner move, react, and track the ball.
After a few minutes on constant throwing, your muscles (teres Major, Subscapularis, Deltoid, Pectoralis Major, Latissimus Dorsi, Latissimus Dorsi Teres Minor and infraspinatus) will be feeling well used!
