Avery's arm stops after his little hitch, it's not continuous. I don't think what he does adds momentum at all, I think it's more just comfort and maybe timing for him.

It's like a forehand in tennis. Some players make the little loop with the racket, some pull the racket straight back. Either way, they're only applying relevant momentum while their racket is moving towards the target.

not at all true. just look at the trebuchet.

like a javelin throw, the hop leading into the throw is very important. it creates forward momentum and puts the arm into a more powerful position.

I'm not talking about the hop, what I'm talking about (and I'm assuming the other poster) is the loop Avery makes with his arm before he starts his throw.

Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly. Click here to see how YouTube videos should be embedded. There could also be a technical issue that's not your fault. Click here to view the video on YouTube's site. If this link doesn't work, you did something wrong.

I agree about the hop, that's forward motion in the direction of the throw without stoppage. They did a sport science once with Padraig Harrington and they had him doing Happy Gilmore drives. He added 25 yards a drive with the run-up.

Apparently I already do something like this.....I wasn't stepping down per se, but rather elongated my stride/stance after a short hop.....like this guy. http://m.youtube.com/#/watch?v=RLGOH...%3DRLGOH3HSk3c
