Slinger problems
Aug 29th, 2020 at 9:39am
 
Iím left handed, and Iíve been throwing more than usual in the last several weeks...
So I looked in the mirror last night and I noticed that my left arm has slightly more muscle tone than my right. Maybe I need to start throwing right-handed to balance it out?

Unless it's this bad, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n7BVxLyIgqM  I'd say you are ok.

I have also noticed that the tendon near my forearm/elbow on my throwing arm is significantly bigger than my off-arm. Even if I had the correct mechanics with my off-arm, I think I couldn't get the same power/endurance just because I haven't strengthened the tendons.

I will say though, I have done a few days here and there of slinging with my off-arm (left side for me) and I think it helps the brain get better on both sides. You have to really break down your form and it can help you realize things you are doing poorly on your regular throwing side.

   I wouldn't worry about one arm being more developed than the other.  There was a professional tennis player years ago, Arthur Ashe, who's right arm was quite noticeably more muscular than his left.  It never caused him any problems.

I had the same issue with my right arm and the solution was to begin training my left arm to do the various right arm tasks.

Slingen ist nicht nur Arm. Dieser Fakt wird immer noch nicht verstanden. Es wird oft wie irrsinnig aus dem arm heraus gepeitscht? Warum? Es bringt Ihnen nichts. Sie werden Probleme mit denn Gelenken bekommen. Ganz sicher.
