The default way of throwing is usually the forehand overhead throw. However, that is not the only way humans can throw things. We have for example the underhand throw, which is the one used in Softball, or also while doing an uppercut. Using the same hand, we can also throw in the opposite direction; just like when throwing a frisbee. This type of throwing can also be trained with the Paraball, and this is what we are going to learn today.
The backhand throw obeys to the same principles as the forehand throw, but in the opposite direction. IF you are throwing with your right hand, you will start by transferring your weight from the left leg to the right leg, initiate the momentum by rotating the pelvis, and deliver that momentum by rotating the ribcage.
We always recommend you start lightest weights, independently of your weight or fitness level. The 3 lbs is a great to start with single handed exercises and the 6lbs to start with two handed exercises.
