Must-Read: Mastering Sports Moves
This is truly one of the best times of the year when it comes to the sports arena. You have the NBA and NHL playoffs in full swing. You have the NFL draft just ending, which provides every team with something to get excited about for the upcoming season. And with the first month of baseball out of the way, you can start actually tracking seasons and teams as to their true value and not just some fluky early-season luck. And, with spring in the air, and the outdoors getting once again beautiful enough to spend ample time it, it’s also time for fellas (and certain ladies) to start playing in more pickup games, be it softball or basketball or even a few rounds of two-hand or flag-football.
And, of course, you’re going to want to dominate those.
Which is why today we’re heading over to Men’s Fitness for their articles on how to master the top 10 athletic movements. They go through everything from how to sprint, to the best way to jump, to these tips on how best to master a throw:
Kneeling Hip Extension to Chest Pass: Take a stance on two knees. Have the ball loaded to your chest. Hinge your hips back to your heels. Explode the hips forward, and chest pass the ball simultaneously. The hips should reach full extension, with the glutes engaged and the body in a tall posture, low back not hyper extended.
The article contains another handful of tips for how best to throw. Work on these, and never be picked last in gym class (or scrimmage games with co-workers) ever again!
