cross over
Cross over
  • Key to all these drills is the javelin is parallel to shoulders and hips
  • Tip eye level and flat javelin
  • Palm turned over and up
cross over drills
Cross over Drills
  • Walking 5 step with finish
  • 3 step lay back
    • Watch for the right crossing the left on after penultimate
  • 5 step lay back
  • 20 meter cross over
    • Stay tall, knee drive
  • 20 meter cross over with bungee
  • Carry should be a comfortable position
    • I teach newcomers over head tip down
    • As they become for advanced, this can change
  • Same body mechanics as a sprinter
    • Stay tall and allow for force production underneath the body
    • Push theory – same for cross over
  • Smooth and comfortable with out much additional movement
  • Beginners we teach 5 and 5
    • Start with left, finish with left
    • More advanced you can add more steps in the carry
    • Stick with 5 steps for the cross over
  • I suggest not to count, place your start and check point and then practice that mark. Counting is just another thing in their head.

High School Plan
  • Mid Season
    • Count full throws throughout the week
      • Every athlete is different on amount they can handle but not more then twice a week and that is counting a meet.
      • A fresh arm will always throw farther then a dead arm. Especially last spring during the end of the season.
    • Practice in all conditions and develop a routine
