Shot Put Glide Technique is one of two main techniques in the sport. The other being the Spin Technique or the Rotational Technique. In the Glide Technique the transfer occurs from the dominant leg, via the acceleration of the non-dominant leg. The force is then transferred up the body through the core and into the putting arm.
Proper shot put glide technique hinges on a flexible lower body
Through out the technique various muscles require flexibility to delivery optimum force. The hamstrings and calves, the adductors and hip flexors, and even the flexors and extensors as well as the rotators of the core. During the initiation of the Glide Technique flexible hamstrings and lower adductors allow for a lower center of gravity and a stronger, further push off. During the transfer into the upper adductors, hip flexors and core muscles allow the shot to pass directly over the base of support, with minimum energy wasted. This let's the maximum amount of energy to be saved and placed into the shot at release.
Standard way of training for this technique is with relaxed and/or dynamic stretches. Kinesiological stretches, used in this program function differently. They take each muscle apart and stretch them separately. Action vs action of each muscle allows to avoid the pain of the stretch reflex for fast flexibility gains. Together with the stretches, strengthening techniques are included to develop strength in newly-gained, deep ranges of the muscles. It allows to maintain the flexibility and utilize it for specifically for the skill of the Glide Technique.
