Winter Project: learn to throw with off-hand.
 
I am making an effort to start learning to throw lefty. Is anyone else interested in this experiment? I would love to log my experience and compare notes with others.

who's in?

Yeah I throw lefty with my right hand.

JTacoma03 10-03-2012 06:16 PM

No. We lefties are special, we don't want you. Stop trying to be unique like we are.

:P

It's just about inverting your brain. I once in a while go out and throw right-handed, it's kinda nice because you don't have to un-learn bad habits, you can just develop good ones. The first thing that you'll probably notice (unless you're naturally ambidextrous) is that strength and coordination in your wrist and hand will need to be developed. Just using your strong hand over years of living puts them on different levels...or at least that's what I noticed.

Grip is what kills my LHBH attempts, it's so foreign. LH FH and putting are much worse, throws like a girl.

My arm hurts just thinking about it!

That's a great idea count me. Whats the plan do peck drills our are you going to just huck and fling and probably swear.

scarwig 10-03-2012 07:29 PM

yep. pec drills, the hit back, the whole deal. starting from square one.

I throw both LH/RH. My recommendation is to take it easy at first. I did like 100 pec drills lefty day 1, and I hurt for like a week after.

I actually just started doing this... my right shoulder is fuct. I've been meaning to post a thread about it, and get some analysis on my bag. I've got a bunch of light/understable stuff in there now, but I am mostly only throwing a couple discs, primarily I light z Comet.

That is the type of stuff I have never even considered... so... yeah, I am interested in this experiment.

I had to experiment with this when I strained my shoulder last spring. I would be game for attempting it also and comparing notes. We could hold each other accountable so none of us wimp out.
