  • Quote from Jackson Bushop: “@Tom Walsh how did you feel about the NZ Championships?” I felt a wee bit buggered for the month of travel but was in good enough to throw the distances need to win! At the end of the day that's why I went to NZ Nationals, to win . I would have been happy to throw 21m again but all wanted to do is win!

  • @Ali Mohammadian The final weights session isn't anything special. iI work at about 80% in the cleans 3x2 Incline Dumbbell bench: - 1 set at 80% a wee bit strength based - 1 set at 40% for speed (super Set) - do that 3x3 Back Squats working about 80% 3x3 super set with Box jumps for speed That season is to keep some tightness in the body but at the same time not get tired from it.

  • >200kg Bench Press = 20+ metres ?

    Tom Walsh - - The World


    i think its more important how fast u move the weight not how much is on the bar. you do need base strength to be good at shot maybe 170kg and above. but i would say 85% of the people that throw over 20m would have 190kg bench press. but then it depends what type of thrower u are strength base or speed base as i am more towards speed so thats how i get away with it i think i was bench 180kg maybe 185kg when i 1st threw 20m

  • Mate, there was a lot going through my head at the time. I was nervous, but when into the circle very confident as I had been throwing very well in training. I had some big warm-up throws in both qualifying and in the final. So for both of the throws I went into the circle and went through my normal q worlds and then said, "You have nothing to lose and everything to gain." I had a 21m throw in the 1st round of the final so I new it was there. I have done a lot of work with a sport psychologist; …
