    UCLA. I went to there throwing camps years ago. You guys really do some mega lifting.

    How is your cleaning and snatching going? I only ask cause your vert and standing long are a little low :hs: Does Scott Moser still have to school record?

    Im jealous that you got to throw there. what were high school throws?

    im going to my first indoor meet next week in washington. Husk Invite. Im having trouble spinning because i stood threw in high school. My best mark is 56 from a spin, but i stand 53 feet. Im definitely an awkward thrower but it takes time. Throwers peak at 28-33 years old. Im still 19 and have been throwing for 2 years.

    I dont doubt it. UCLA makes you weight train AND eat like a sonofabitch. everyone who throws there gets strong and huge.

    I have problems with my index finger while throwing, but mostly with discus.

    With shot like 90% of the weight of the ball is in the fingers. and you want the fingers relativly close. Really not much farther spread than just a relaxed had.

    what kinda problem is he having. our new member im sure could shed more light than I could with the shot.

    I think he just severely injured his throwing fingers... like split them or something

    hes a friend of a thrower who pl's with us. He's with the Australian insitute of sport so I'm sure he has enough people telling him what to do.

    this guy is possibly the biggest guy on here at the moment...

    I got no idea then. I think generally there are more wrist problems than finger problems with the shot. But I was a shit shotputter though.

    most people only have problems from transitioning from the high school to the college shot (5.35K to 7.26k)...but blowing out knuckles or any sort of finger problem is pretty rare if you are throwing correctly....the best thrower in the world randy barnes once said that he tried stretching his fingers so much back while throwing the shot he tries to break them...if he isnt breaking his fingers from the shot then no one else should be doing it

    I think it was more of a dislocation or something odd...

    it could be. I used to be able to pop my index finger on my right hand in all sorts of directions.
