Dryland Tip: Catch Drills
Directions: These drills are pretty simple and just involve tossing a light medicine ball against a trampoline or dribbling it against the wall. Each time the ball comes back to you, the muscles of your shoulder girdle need to decelerate it. You can also use “dumbbell rebound drop-catches” in various planes of motion, similar to the catch phase of your strokes.
