Get a Grip
Place your ring and pinky fingers between the last two laces of the ball. Keep your pointer behind the tip and your middle finger over the laces.

Keep It Up
Raise your elbow and hand up by your head as you begin. "It may feel strange, but you'll overthrow your target if your elbow drops down," says Boomer.

Turn It Out
Your hand, that is, as you release. "Don't move your hand as if turning an oven knob. Your wrist and thumb should release outward and upward," he explains.
