When I did, I saw something even I’ve never noticed before (not that I sat around watching javelin throwers, I was always on the track when I competed, no field except for high and long jump).
You’ll see that the whole engine driving the javelin throw is actually in the hips and legs. I don’t have much to say about this as it clearly shows what I’ve been saying for some time now.
If you want to learn how to swing powerfully and with speed, you’re going to have to use the body as the engine that powers the arms and hands.
You don’t move the hands and arms, you move the hips and legs to move the arms and hands.
This is the basic difference between the Classic Golf Swing principles of old (using the hips & legs to swing the golf club) versus the Modern Golf Swing method of twisting the lower back to turn the shoulders against a resisting lower body.
In any other sport, you’ll see Classic Golf Swing principles in action.
The hips and lower body lead, the rest of the body follows. Except with the golf swing, it’s a below-the shoulders swing and not above throwing. Same principles, all day long.
Doesn’t get much clearer than that!
