Guys, lets not make this an argument. Absolutes are almost never helpful. Saying something is all something or never something is also almost never true.

If you feel that no exercise whatsoever can make you a stronger slinger and it's 100% form this is probably not the thread for you. I dont say that to be a jerk. I do appreciate your opinions but seeing as how it has already degraded into arguments lets move back to exercises that can help. Thanks.

Personally, throwing a disc (disc golf) backhand has helped me tremendously. To be effective at disc golf, you must engage the hips and shoulders in the correct sequence. It has helped me sling with more power and less effort. My slinging form never evolved until I started throwing a disc. As soon as I did my slinging form started rapidly improving.

They are kind of opposite in the direction of rotation, but somehow working with both movements has helped each improve. It's a sort of cross-training, I suppose.

Das habe ich verstanden. Und ich spreche auch nicht dagegen. Sport und Bewegung sind immer hilfreich. Auch Koordination. Viele Kinder die sehr viel Computer oder Handy zocken, haben Koordination Probleme. Das bemerke ich in meinen Trainingsgruppen immer wieder fest.
Ich wiederhole es gerne noch einmal. Spielen sie pelota a Mano. Ihr slingen wird sich erheblich verbessern. Auch wenn sie die Sling  nur wenig trainieren. Sie brauchen einen Tennisball, eine Wand und einen glatten festen Boden. Ebenfalls sehr zu empfehlen ist Speer werfen. Sie können das Training mit einem Speer sehr vielseitig gestalten. Benutzen sie ein Atlatl. Oder ein amentum. Oder werfen sie einen Speer nur mit der Hand. Verwenden sie dafür aber einen bestimmten griff. Der Speer liegt auf der Handfläche und zwischen zeige und Mittelfinger. Probieren sie es aus.



"Throwing a spear is also highly recommended. You can make training with a spear very versatile."

Jaegoor, Ive wanted to train spear throwing anyways. Will this also make me a stronger slinger? Will it build slinging specific muscles?

You can orientate yourself on other throwing sports. Pitcher drills are to be emphasized. For quick strength, throw a medicine ball at 3 kg or more on a wall. It is also very important to train your back. Mobility training and balance training are also very useful.

Perfect!! Thanks! I had not even thought of a medicine ball. We can also get really heavy training baseballs as well. That might be worth looking into.

Morphy. Ja. Sie trainieren nicht nur Muskeln. Sie entwickeln auch ein Gefühl für Hebel. Das werfen mit einem amentum kommt einer sling am nächsten. Es gibt zwei Varianten. Ein festes amentum. Es bleibt am Schaft. Und ein loses amentum. Es wickelt sich bei einem Wurf ab und verbleibt in der Hand.
