How many throws in a session?
Jun 7th, 2020 at 4:10am
 
We've all had those days where we probably slung like a million rocks eh?

Can we start keeping track of how many throws you make in a regular slinging practice session?
I don't know how many I do but I'm estimating between 30-100 throws.

This thread will take a while to amass the data we need so can we stick this to the top of the list for the summer?

Usually around 50-100.

stickied it is Smiley

Well I have around 50 tennis balls.
And I probably throw for a couple of hours.

Factor in picking up and walking back and forwards - probably 3-400 throws.

Currently don't have anywhere to throw (or a car) - but on average that's probably about right.

50 to 100 generally.  But it can vary greatly.

My count is usually dependent on how many ice balls I'm able to make in a week. Smiley

A normal session is probably between 80 and 110 throws.

I don't take more than 10 kg of stones with me, which is about 40-50 stones.

I usually throw tennis balls for my dog in the backyard 2-3 times a day... Around 30 throws per session, so 100/day on a good day.

/sigh back to work and suddenly could not find the time to practice.  So I don't loose it all going to try to get in 100 shots instead of 350 a day.  Progress will be much slower but better something then nothing at all.

It’s about quality over quantity. 100 is fine , and your progress won’t be hindered. You might be surprised what a break from slinging can do. Keep it up your doing great.
