How to throw with a “gorilla grip”

1
Grip the ball.

Like other curveball grips, the variable this time is your index finger. Grip the ball with your middle finger along the bottom seam, and your thumb along the back seam. Hold the baseball such that the curves of the seams are close to your palm, with one on top and one on bottom. Bend your index finger inward before laying it on the ball, such that your nail and top knuckle are resting on the ball, and your middle knuckle is pointing at the target.

For right-handed people, place your middle finger on the right seam on top, and your thumb on the left seam on bottom. Lefties should do the opposite sides. Getting comfortable with a knuckle...

Before you can catch an exception, some code somewhere must throw one. Any code can throw an exception: your code, code from a package written by someone else such as the packages that come with the Java platform, or the Java runtime environment. Regardless of what throws the exception, it's always thrown with the throw statement.

As you have probably noticed, the Java platform provides numerous exception classes. All the classes are descendants of the Throwable class, and all allow programs to differentiate among the various types of exceptions that can occur during the execution of a program.

You can also create your own exception classes to represent problems that can occur within the classes you write. In fact, if you are a package developer, you might have to create your own set of exception classes to allow users to differentiate an error that can occur in your package from errors that occur in the Java platform or other packages.

You can also create...

Huge, Powerful Lower Arms Can Be Yours

Page 1

The forearms are made up of several muscles groups that are used primarily for arm extension and flexion. The five major extensor muscles on the top side of each forearm are responsible for extending the wrists. Three major flexor muscles on the bottom, or underside, of each forearm bend the wrist down.

Most bodybuilders barely think of their wrists and forearms. In their haste to develop their upper arms, chest, back, shoulders and thighs, the wrists and forearms get overlooked, the same way the calves get overlooked. Most bodybuilders don’t realize how important forearm development is for total arm symmetry, balance and impressiveness—not to mention strength on a number of key exercises. Very few work their forearms directly. They do maybe 12 to 15 sets each for biceps and triceps and then throw in a measly three sets of wrist curls, and then they wonder why their forearms aren’t better...

A curveball is a type of pitch in baseball where the ball does not follow the standard trajectory, but instead, takes a downward curve on its path to the batter. Usually, when you pitch a baseball, the batter has to estimate the height at which the ball will reach him, and swing his bat accordingly. The curveball, due to the spin generated, dips down as it reaches the batter. It is one of the most popular pitches in baseball, and is one of the first advanced pitches taught to youngsters.

The secret to throwing a curveball well is not letting the batter anticipate that you are going to throw one. Batting in baseball works a lot on anticipation, seeing as the batter has to predict the way the ball is going to come to him before hitting it. So, if the batter works out that you're going to throw one, then he'll be able to predict the trajectory, and will smack the ball, rendering the otherwise effective curveball useless.

In java we have already defined exception classes such as ArithmeticException, ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException, NullPointerException etc. There are certain conditions defined for these exceptions and on the occurrence of those conditions they are implicitly thrown by JVM(java virtual machine).

Do you know that a programmer can create a new exception and throw it explicitly? These exceptions are known as user-defined exceptions. In order to throw user defined exceptions, throw keyword is being used. In this tutorial, we will see how to create a new exception and throw it in a program using throw keyword.

You can also throw an already defined exception like ArithmeticException, IOException etc.

Syntax of throw statement

throw AnyThrowableInstance;

Example:

//A void method public void sample() { //Statements //if (somethingWrong) then IOException e = new IOException(); throw e; //More Statements }

Do you love baseball but feel that your opponent hitter is too well versed with the trick of the trade and can overpower your weak point in an instant? Baseball is a beautiful sport that is preferred by many schoolboys. Some even feel more passionate towards the game than conventional popular sports like soccer, basketball, tennis or hockey. Those who interpret this sport as unchallenging are widely mistaken. Perch yourself on a seat of a baseball field during any match and watch the players brimming with inexorable zeal in their stance. The adrenaline rush it arouses is indeed paranormal. However, nothing good comes easy. It takes a commendable amount of skill and effort to be a good baseball player. It certainly isn’t a piece of cake for every baseball fanatic to qualify for the school’s baseball league. That is the principle of life. While a few individuals steal the spotlight, the rest of us have to sit back, be the audience and hurl biased comments from our seats....

A sinker is a term used to describe one of the pitches in a ball game. Another term for it is a 'sinking fastball'. However, this pitch is not as fast as a regular fastball. Other types of pitches are a cutter, a sharp curveball, and a split-finger fastball.

A sinker is thrown at a slight angle than normal, so you get a late movement on it, and the ball moves down to the right. This makes it one of the favorite pitches in a ballgame. Hitters have trouble making contact with it, and so pitchers have more opportunities of getting ground-ball outs. Knowing how to pitch an effective sinker takes time and practice. Many will probably advice you, if you are 16 or under, to hang around a bit more before you attempt this type of pitching. The reason being, youngsters run a danger of damaging their hands by stretching their fingers too much for a widened grip on the ball. Of course, if you were born with an extra-large set of hands, you might not face this problem.

In studying the basic movements of the Rotary Swing Tour golf swing, and why we do it the way we do, one part that's very easy to understand is the basic, overall movement of the golf swing.

The basic throwing motion remains the most efficient way anyone has ever come up with to use the human body to propel an object with speed, and we use the exact same motions and movements in the golf swing.

The throwing motion: Load right, step with left, pivot hips & load arm, pivot body, throw

What makes up the throwing motion? A right handed person takes the following steps to throw an object:

Step back onto the right leg Load the right side Step forward with the left leg Pivot the hips Load the right arm Pivot the body Fire the right arm

Shoulder Blade Down & In

Notice that the arm externally rotates. You're moving your shoulder blade down and in as you go back to throw. Sound familiar?

You can't throw very far with the shoulder up &...

Video Transcription: Golf Swing Weight Shift

Golf swing weight shift is a hot topic in golf instruction, especially with golf swing models coming out that are advocating staying on the front leg, like Stack & Tilt.

I also teach golfers who don't have very much time to practice, or are new to golf, not to involve a lot of weight shift during the learning process simply because they don't have enough time to learn all the moves.

The golf swing is a complicated movement and we can simplify it dramatically, especially during the learning process, if we minimize as many moving parts as possible.

The tradeoff there is that there's a loss of power if you don't transfer your weight in the golf swing.

Whole-body weight transfer

You can experience this for yourself.

Go outside and grab a baseball or a rock, or a golf ball on the driving range, and try and throw it as far as you can and see if you shift your weight.

I assure you that,...

Today we're going to talk about a simple drill that will show you how to exaggerate the positions of lag. This can help you break through if you've been struggling with lag for a long time.

Again, this drill is an exaggeration. You're going to start with normal positions of lag and really take them to extremes.

This is only for people who have been struggling to get more and more lag. You're going to get 10 times more lag than you need, then once you've made that breakthrough and achieve the correct feeling, you can tone it down to a normal amount.

Exaggerated Lag Drill: Left wrist flat on backswing, then bows forward through "impact"

Here's How

The first step is to lose the club. Put the club down, get into your posture, and just swing your left arm back and through. Stop when your left hand is 6-8" in front of your left leg.

Make sure your left wrist stays nice and flat on the "backswing" part of the drill. You don't want any bowing or...
