Dummy throwing challenge - 330 throws later

Dummy throwing challenge: Rabbit throws

Think of bowling! Release the dummy early and don't swing it too high. Bending your knees, just like when bowling, might be helpful as well. https://www.retrievingforalloccasions.com/dummy-throwing-challenge-part-7-rabbit-throws/

Dummy throwing challenge: Precision throws

If you want to hit a specific spot, stand steadily on both feet, swing with a straight arm and release the dummy at the same spot every time. https://www.retrievingforalloccasions.com/dummy-throwing-challenge-part-3-precisions-throws/

Dummy throwing challenge: Back chaining

Dummy throwing challenge: Different types of throws

Dummy throwing challenge: Releasing the dummy at different points

To increase the precision of your throws you can practice dummy throwing by thinking of a watch face. Release at 10 o'clock and you'll get a high throw. Release at 9 o'clock and you'll get a lower. At half past eight even lower. https://www.retrievingforalloccasions.com/dummy-throwing-challenge-part-6-timing-the-release

Dummy throwing challenge: Throwing high

We’ll begin with some inspiration on high throws / find something to throw over. I used the aerial line in one of my fields. In the video below you’ll see how it went, or maybe didn’t go, the first time 😉 My helper and I had slightly different opinions on whether or not my throw was over it or not. From my angle they looked like they we’re over, but in the video it looks like they weren’t. Maybe they were just above the lower one? You’ll have to ignore the fact that the video is a bit shaky - my helper laughed so hard at my throws that he couldn’t hold the camera still. 😉 Anyway, ten dummies thrown is more than none and a first step in the right direction. 🙂 https://www.retrievingforalloccasions.com/dummy-throwing-challenge-part-2-throwing-high/
