Get on Balance!Awesome Progression as this�High School Thrower learns how to get on balance!Getting on Balance is one of the toughest things to accomplish in the rotational throws.This is a great example of giving the student enough information and then letting him learn from the feed back his body gives him.Of course, you must know the position you are looking for, and this student does.His body tells him he is not on balance and eventually he corrects to find a balanced position.'Hitting the hands' is used as a "stopping point" for being on balance.You need to be on balance at 9 o'clock, or when this thrower is hitting his dad's hands.Hitting the hands keeps the thrower from turning past the balance point.1 Drill - Hit the Hands 1:23Mac Wilkins�is an�American Olympic�athlete�who was once the best discus and shot put thrower in the world.� Mac Wilkins the Coach�� In�Eight Years�from 2006 through 2013 Wilkins coached the throws at Concordia University, in Portland, OR.�His throwers won 26 individual National Championships and earned 94 All-American honors.� In August 2013, Wilkins left Concordia University to coach for the USATF at the US Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista California.� He has contributed as a part time coach or consultant to the following throwers: �2012-�Krishna�Poonia, India��������#6�London Olympics� �2010-�Krishna�Poonia, India��������Commonwealth Champion, W-DT� �2010- Jason Y���USA� � � � � � � � �#1 US M-DT, Olympian� �2009- Dani S, Australia� � � � � � ��World�Champion W-DT� �2008- Stephanie T���USA� � � � � ��Olympic�Champion W-DT� �2008 �Annie Hess,�Concordia U.��Longest�US College W-DT�at�any level in 2008, � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � �(3�years from�45m, 147� to�58.69m, 192')� �2001-�Adam S���USA� � � � � � � � �#5 World Championships� �2000- Adam S���USA� � � � � � � � �#5 Sydney Olympics�M-DT*1996 - Adam S � USA � � � � � � � � �Finalist Atlanta Olympic Games*1988 '92 '96 ��Ramon Jimenez Gaona � �Paraguay � Olympian &�Pac-10 Champion*1976 '80 � � � �Lynne Winbigler Anderson � � �USA � �Olympian & National Champion �� Mac Wilkins the Thrower�� Olympic Gold Medal 1976 Olympic Silver Medal 1984 Olympic 5th place 1988 Four Times World Record Holder Eight Times US National Champion in the Discus Ranked #1 in the World in 1976 and 1980 in the discus.
