How To Hold Shot Put Implement: Glide Technique
Here is how a glide shot put thrower should hold the implement.The majority of the weight of the shot put to be held at the base of the fingers, high in the hand. Notice the good thumb position. Use the pad of the thumb underneath the shot put. Do not use the whole thumb to grip the shot. Place the shot into the neck directly underneath the ear, pressing up against the jawline. The loaded position of the cocked wrist indicates the implement is loaded and ready to have a full release.
