How to Throw Shot Put: How to Hold a Shot Put

This video teaches athletes how to hold the shot put as a rotational shot put thrower. The shot put is sitting higher in the hand than most athletes would realize. It sits up on the pads or the base of the fingers. It does not sit in the palm of the hand. As the athlete puts the ball up to the neck, it sits back behind the ear, further back on the neck than in a glide shot put thrower. The elbow should be up in position with pressure on the neck holding the shot put in the proper place.
