Thread: Perfect arch for throwing help?

    Default Perfect arch for throwing help?

    So I just started freestyle at the Elite School of Wrestling,coached by TJ Williams, and I really like freestyle. Dylan Reel was showing me some moves and showed me how a 5 pt. throw would go, and I tried it, but I can only do it if I go off to one side a little, like in folkstyle sort of. How do I get a perfect arch? Am I supposed to land on my neck? Head?

    Here are a couple of pointers:

    You want to land on your head in a neck bridge. The key is getting the other guys back to hit the mat first so you can support your weight on him. One thing that could help you throw a suplex straight back instead of off to the side is where you look-- look directly behind you/upside down when throwing. If you turn your head to the right or the left you will have a tendency to turn your body.

    Also, flexibility in your back is extremely important. Stretch well, practice throwing, and do wall-walks and back arch drills with your partner.

    I agree with everything you said, just make sure that as you're looking straight back, you don't land on your forehead in a high bridge and injure your neck.

    You need to have explosive legs, and they should provide the initial up and over power. you also need to arch....i mean exagerate the arch...and really get your opponents feet in the air. I practiced with a 50lb bag of cow feed in my pap's barn...you can buy a bag at agway or farm and fleet...or use a heavy bag if you have one.

    Best of luck...and more importantly, HAVE FUN!

    Throwing arch is the biggest part...to be honest, I'm still a little afraid to go for a 5 pointer on a supplay or a salto....anything going backwards, basically.
