- Release ball with a snap of the wrist. (This creates a backspin on the ball)
- Thumbs should be pointing down after release.
- The spot where the ball should hit the floor should be approximately 2/3 to 3/4 the distance of intended target.
- Release ball with a snap of the wrist resulting with full rotation of the radioulnar joint.
- Thumbs should be inferior to the remaining phalanges
Rotation (of a joint): to turn the moving bone about its axis. In this case, it is medial rotation: rotating toward the body.
Radioulnar joint: any of three joints connecting the radius and ulna at their proximal and distal ends and along their shafts
Radius: One of two long bones that goes from your wrist to your elbow. It is located the thumbside of the arm.
Ulna: One of two long bones that goes from your wrist to your elbow. This is the thinner bone that is located on the pinkie side of the arm.
Proximal: situated next to or near the point of attachment or origin or a central point. In reference to another part, the proximal part is closer to the trunk of the body.
Distal: located away from the center of the body <the distal end of a bone>. In reference to another part, the distal part is further away from the trunk of the body.
