Throwing is an integral function that shaped human’s innate musculature.
The same way we developed muscles from running to survive, we developed muscles from throwing spears to kill prey and feed ourselves.
For example, the chest muscles developed from throwing and not pushups or bench presses, the same way the glutes developed from running and not squats and leg presses.
Evolutionary characteristics played a defining role in what are muscles look like and how they function. Training is best for the human body when the exercises respect the blueprint of how our muscles work to move us.
This allows exercise to translate outside of the training room into sports, performance, and everyday function.
