Slinging while sitting down (because I have to)
Feb 5th, 2023 at 10:37pm
 
My ankle is healing well, but it's still going to be a while before I'm able to move around normally.† So I tried out slinging from a seated position.

I had to have a boot on for 3 months once, in te winter. Wasn't able to do a damn thing. Almost went crazy.

Nice show, mr joe. Iím going to add this to my practice sessions I c a lot of potential to b able to understand how the upper body works during the throw by having the lower body stationary and not having to think about the step. Get well soon!

I thought sitting down accuracy would be pretty tough but you're making it look easy!

Here u go mr joe, my 1st ever, not so good, attempt at seated sling. No practice or warm up before. I donít have any folding chairs so I used a stool, and left my target at normal heights. Hope2 cu back in the competition soon. I think we should do a week with seated rounds at 13m. This helps u c how the lower body effect the swing. Enjoy and Get Well Soon.

Nice man!† After the first 4 or 5 you really got in a groove for a bit. Thumbs Up

The seated takes some getting used to in that you need to have your hips in one position for the entire throw.† Definitely a weird feeling.

I've been working at 20 meters.  Although I've started putting weight on my foot so hopefully I'll be back on my feet soon.  But this is the best round of 10 balls that I've done so far.
