Relaxed Arm JV, Tue Apr 9 09:08
Most of the time the problem is by landing to hard over the right leg (right hand thrower),on easy relaxed throws try dragging/holding the trailing leg during the double support @ plant.. that allow to throw and release with more extension.

    Nemeth Standard vs Club Ryan, Thu Aug 3, 2017 15:18
