View Full Version : Help with Discus/Javelin?

So I can't seem to throw these very far. My high is like 80m for Javelin and 40 for Discus. I haven't been able to repeat those. Any tips and advice would be great.

Keep your arms straight at all times. For both, I found if you keep your arms straight they go a lot further. I think I it 127 with my javelin by just holding my harm straight back, then throwing it straight forward.

I wish it was more obvious what you need to do to "do a good throw". You just have to go through trial and error and hope for the best it seems.

So I have like 51m in discus and only 70m in javelin? Kinda frustrating.

The run in javelin is important too. Kinect tracks your knees for this, so make sure you get your knees up high for a fast run. Then keep your arm straight and high for a good throw as well.

well since some one asked for the long distance trow. How about discus for less then 4m for the chevo? if I only slightly move my arms, nothing happens. And if I move just a tiny bit faster I get 10m. Anyone got this that have some tips?

put your arm straight out from your chest and wiggle around till it releases, that's all i did
