A reverse shoulder throw is a throw made in front of the body where the object is caught behind the back in either hand, after going back over the shoulder on the same side where it's caught. A reverse shoulder throw that is caught in the left hand goes back over the left shoulder, whether it was thrown with the right hand or the left hand. Reverse shoulder throws are also called lazies.
Tips[edit | edit source]
- Use a long hold time.
- Throw the clubs almost flat, with very little rotation.
- Make the catches slightly out to your side (but not too far from your body), rather than actually directly behind your back.
