Interesting reads. I forwarded the bit about the endzone drill to someone who loves it (I seriously hate it, for exactly those reasons)... let's see what happens Smiley

More to the point: my usual off-season is highly dominated by a few months of no ultimate. Then I tend to start some fun hat tournaments, city leagues, the things that will revive my fun in the game Smiley. When that's done (usually winter time) it is back to 2 or more throwing sessions per week, focussing on 1 throw for a couple of sessions (usually 2 weeks of time).

This year, due to a back injury which has been haunting me for a while, I am more into physio and gym activity I guess Sad

I like your strategy for off season throwing practice.  I think it's still consistent with what I've written about variability in practice as long as you're throwing other throws in between or changing release points, fakes etc.  It is very helpful to have a focus throw.  Two weeks sounds like a good amount of time between rotations.  Enough time to see some desired improvements but not too long to become bored.  It's a very fine line with deliberate practice.  If you're doing it right, it does sometimes feel like work.  It's not supposed to be fun necessarily.  At the same time, if the brain is bored it's not learning anything.

I'd love to hear what your friend thinks about the endzone drill.  Why does he/she like it?  I think the endzone drill has a kind of rhythm to it which is kind of relaxing and nice.  But again, that's exactly a reason why you would NOT want to do it before a game in which you want to come out fired up.
