If you don't have a multi-piece throw, should the right pec and closed shoulder drills feel the same?
1. Start the pull at the right pec. ( or mid-line of your torso if pulling lower)
2. Aren't rushing your shoulders or strong arming the right pec drill.
Hammer pound is fine, but it only focuses on the arm. I was hoping for something more full-body.
That's the whole thing. You want any body motions you add to make the hammer pound stronger.
You have to experiment.
So, you have the hammer pound. Add some shoulder rotation. If the way you add shoulder rotation makes the pound stronger, keep it, else find another way that will. Same for hip rotation, run-up, etc.
The hammer pound feeling is the hit.
