I am a strength and conditioning coach at Central Connecticut State University and I have been training my throwers for several months now. I have recently began adding the Jammer Rotation (Hammer Strength) using the single arm - split stance technique.  I have maxes for each athlete which work very well wit the Jammer Extension technique (Base stance, double arm).  I was curious if any other coaches have been able to find a correlation for 1RM percentages between these two exercises.  When I do the exercises myself, it seems as though I can lift about 25lbs more on the rotational jammer. Thanks for any help that you can provide!
