400/800/1500/Shot/Discus
 
I plan to compete in the PA Senior Games in July, held in York PA. Iím going to give the 400/800/1500/Shot/Discus a solid try. If I can place in the top three spots in any category, it qualifies me for the 2010 National Games.

I plan to be working with a Throwing coach next month, but wonder if anyone has suggestions for training exercises.

I feel pretty confident that the basic SS program will/has served me well and I should be in good basic shape when practice starts outside, but Iím open(and welcome) any and all suggestions.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Right on Jay, good to see you around here. Nothing really to add, but I'll be pulling for you too.

Craig;

Good suggestion, as I follow Dan's blog. I'll cross post my question over there.

Thanks Derek.

Jay, Dan's got his own forum over at IronOnline (davedraper.com) as well, with a lot of his throwers on board. Good stuff and an article archive.

Yep, visit it daily and question has been posted.
Thanks again.
BTW, Dan is having a get together in June at his place. Not sure I can make as it conflicts with my race date, but it would be a good time.

Good luck. That sounds like fun. I don't much care for the 800 and 1500 (I'd need a bike), but I have competed in the other events. Tweak your training to include the more explosive presses and dip-and-drive exercises. Of course DJ loves OHS for his throwers. And definitely get a coach for some instruction. Technique goes a long way in both events. I couldn't throw discus worth a damn, but I could put the shot well because of technique and explosiveness.

Jay, that IOL bash at Dan's school will be a blast. I expect to attend.
