Seated Shot Put – What’s it all about?

O'Riordan, Alison & Frossard, Laurent A. (2006) Seated Shot Put – What’s it all about? Modern Athlete and Coach, 44(2), pp. 2-8.


There are a number of purposes to this paper. Primarily I want to describe the learning that has taken place during my coaching time working with seated throwers. Secondly I want to share useful and practical information of the coaching process with current and future coaches. I particularly want to highlight the technical improvements in the throwing pattern and describe how this was achieved by making changes in technique, strength and conditioning, and frame design.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
