One of the key parts of getting more power in your throw is to increase the mobility in your thoracic spine. Upper body fire hydrants, a thoracic spine mobilizer, is a great drill to get more mobility in your upper back which will give you more rotation, translating immediately into more power when throwing a frisbee, without changing your strength.

One of the key parts of getting more power in your throw is to increase the mobility in your thoracic spine. Prayers, a thoracic spine mobilizer, is an exercise I’ve been doing for a few months in my warm-up before every workout. I’ve noticed in the past month that I’m becoming more mobile which is translating directly into more power in my throw and subsequently, more distance on my throws.
In this video, I introduce my trainer, Curtis Howden, and we talk about how I’m training for disc sports competitions with a specific focus on getting more power in my throw. We’re starting by mobilizing my thoracic spine and by getting more rotation, I will be able to generate more power and throw the disc further. I’m really starting to notice the benefits of working with Curtis and in the past few weeks, my throws have been getting longer every time I throw. I will work on getting some videos up that show how I practice throwing and just how far I can throw the different types of discs.
