3 QB Throwing Tips
The first thing I want to talk about is your base. If you can maintain a wide base throughout your throw, the ball will get out of your hands much faster. The faster you get your front foot in the ground the faster the ball will pop off of your hand. If you can get the ball out quicker And quicker, the defense will have a hard time adjusting and reacting.
The second thing that is very important to QBs is their back stroke. Everyone has a different back stroke but when you separate your hands you cannot lift the ball. If you lift the ball over your head or strait to 90, that’s when your shoulder will dip and you will start to have the ball dip behind your head on the external rotation phase of the throw. Have some kind of back stroke.
The last tip I want to discuss is your follow through. When you release the ball extension is important. A lot of guys bend their elbow when they release. That’s not how you gain accuracy. If you can extend at your release point, you will be much more consistent with your release and accuracy. Think of it like throwing darts.
