Challenges the thrower to use good fundamentals to reach a certain distance.


  • Place an obstacle at a distance for the thrower to try and hit.

How it Works

  1. Thrower goes through normal throwing motion and throws the shot put attempting to hit or surpass the obstacle in front of them.
  2. As long as they continue surpassing the obstacles, keep moving the obstacle further away.

Coaching Tips

  • When you place the obstacle, you can either set it at a point you know the thrower can reach, but make it near their personal best or you can use this drill as a progression for the thrower to challenge them to improve the distance on their throws.
