The hammer pound drills will give you the feeling of what a good hit feels like.
You aren't trying to throw like this, just get the feeling by going through the motions slowly:
1. Get really comfortable with the hammer pounds.
2. Eliminate any reachback or body rotations for now.
3. Try to get the hammer pound feeling when you do the right pec drill.
4. Blake's rail pictures are good for fine tuning and understanding.
Rinse and repeat as needed. This stuff can take a while(years) to get down.
If you don't have a multi-piece throw, should the right pec and closed shoulder drills feel the same?
Hammer pound is fine, but it only focuses on the arm. I was hoping for something more full-body.
