Indoor Throwing for Athletes in 2022

Indoor Throwing for Athletes in 2022

By Chris Dyrmishi

TRAIN AND THROW INDOORS THIS WINTER!

Winter Training Plan for Throwing Athletes

That time of the year has come around again. Temperatures are dropping, and conditions are getting more difficult to throw in...

If you have indoor facilities nearby, you may have considered taking your training there instead. Well, if you have, here is everything you need to know about throwing indoors this winter!

ESSENTIALS FOR INDOOR THROWING

Before you make a move, you will need the appropriate equipment to throw in any indoor facility. The basic equipment you need is as follows:

  1. Indoor implement
  2. Indoor throwing circle
  3. Appropriate footwear

INDOOR ATHLETICS EQUIPMENT

Throwing indoors with an outdoor implement is impossible in many cases. For this reason, you will likely need to purchase an indoor implement, regardless of your event!

INDOOR SHOT PUT THROWING

SOFT SHELL OR HARD SHELL FOR SHOT PUT?

For Shot Putters, there are two types of indoor implements: soft shell and hard shell. The type you use all comes down to preference through trial and error.

INDOOR PVC SHOT

Trial PVC Shot for Indoor Shot Put Competition

This is an indoor competition shot. They are some of the highest quality implements available in the UK and are used frequently at indoor competitions, such as Loughborough Winter Opens.

For discus throwers, regular discs can be used when throwing into nets. However, there is an option for rubber discs for beginners if space is an issue. Alternatively, you can purchase a discus with a strap to prevent the athlete from releasing. This is ideal for drills.

INDOOR DISCUS THROWING

Indoor Discus Training for Competitions

For discus throwers, regular discs can be used when throwing into nets. However, there is an option for rubber discs for beginners if space is an issue. Alternatively, you can purchase a discus with a strap to prevent the athlete from releasing. This is ideal for drills.

INDOOR HAMMER THROW EQUIPMENT

For hammer throwers, this is similar. If nets are involved, you can use any type of outdoor hammer. However, PVC hammers are also an option, especially for athletes beginning out in the sport looking to do drills in an indoor space. The handle is made of a soft nylon material with a plastic-coated nylon cord connecting it with the ball.

The Trial Indoor PVC Hammer below is a great example of this!

JAVELIN THROW INDOORS

For javelin throwers, the same applies. If they have rubber heads, these can be used indoors against nets. However, if this is not the case, event-specific javelin balls are perfect!
