Shot put
Around the Academy:

Punch that shot into the sky
Step four

With a side-on stance, transfer the power up through the legs, body and throwing arm.

And with a high elbow, release the shot by punching your arm to the sky and flipping the wrist.

The shot can easily fall away from the neck during the throw so make sure it is fully pressed hard against your neck until the final release.
