Throw with arm at side For the right arm, stand sideways so that your left side is facing a ‘rebounder’ or wall. Keep the right elbow tucked against your right side with the elbow at a right angle. Throw a 1 to 2 pound ball across the body, keeping the elbow tucked to the side, to the rebounder. Catch the rebounded ball in the same arm position, allowing the arm to comfortably stretch back, and then quickly throw the ball again. Do not pause or stop the ball movement after catching it.
