Jav 16 Javelin coaching with images

Coaches have to talk to their athletes, but it is not always that easy. You may think that you have explained an idea very clearly, but for some reason, the athlete has not understood and gets it wrong. So, like in many other situations: A GOOD IMAGE IS BETTER THAN A LONG EXPLANATION . An image can often ‘talk’ to the athlete better than the coach if it is well chosen. Nearly all coaches have their own ‘talking images’. Here are some which have proved to be quite effective. Some I have found myself but, more often, have ‘stolen’ from other more competent coaches! The following set of pictures covers nearly ALL THE PHASES of the javelin throw and should be quite useful for athletes and coaches . There you will see how to ”Run like a trotting horse” , ”Hang on the cross” , ”Pick the apple” ”Plant you wooden leg” and a few other things . All together about 20 images which , so I hope , will talk to you by themselves. Available documents : 1-Tech 4 PDF 22 pages -2- related video exercises on the blog -3-PDF sample for visitors
