I am going to take up the javelin. My dad introduced me to it, and I fell in love with it. He was a nationally ranked masters thrower (in the geeser age group), and at one time had a world ranking (in the just-under-geeser age group). Anyway, I am going to be mostly teaching and training myself. I will try to find books and videos for technique, but I am wondering what the best way to get into shape for the javelin is. If anyone has had experience in high school, college or masters level competition I would appreciate advice. Thanks in advance, garythenuke Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
