Ha, I'm teaching my girls how to throw.  I never thought about it till I was teaching Daughter #1.  After watching here I found out it's simply that people who don't throw often put the wrong foot forward.  Simple to teach how to throw really, just lead with the other foot.

Now now.  I had a GF who liked to play baseball.  She'd come up to bat and the guys in the outfield would all move in thinking that if she hit it would be short.

 

She'd almost always hit it out of the park.  Canadian Junior Badminton champion.  

 

Just sayin....

Feminists in Australia are bitching & blaming the Army because very few women in the army have signed up for combat - something they now have equal rights to do..

 

The simple fact is the women don't want to be on the front line & get shot at. They've said so.

So women will be like men, the loud rich ones won't serve anyways.

My daughter has a better arm then most boys. Having coached baseball and softball I can say with confidence that just as many boys throw like girls as there are girls that do.

If I were training someone throwing explosives, I may have that person attempt a toss or two without live ammo, just to evaluate weather or not they can throw without risking our lives...

Trainer fail..

My wife preferred the LAWS rocket, for when you really wanted to reach out and touch someone...

Hand grenades weren't a problem, she played softball in highschool.

If you're like me, you grew up watching Sgt Sauders pulling the pin out of a grenade with his teeth, then throwing it like a baseball about 50 yds, always on target, wasting those "Jerry's".

Well fuck, you'll dislocate your jaw if you try pulling the pin with your teeth...if you don't fucking rip your teeth out (don't even try it...the DI will kick you in the balls just for trying), and the little fucker weighs about a lb...it isn't going to travel nearly as far as you think. They are actually used to chucking lame asses into the safety trenches.

The part i like is the one trainer who drops down & looks up to - what, watch the fugger explode? The polite little "boom" will let him know it exploded.

Back to the OP: combat or not, women certainly ought to at least have to register for the non-existent draft in the US, if they expect equal opportunities and advancement both in or outside of the service (as it should be).

At Parris Island, it was discovered that 45 percent of female Marines were unable to throw a hand grenade far enough to avoid blowing themselves up.

The kill zone for a grenade was a bit over five yards back in the day, the injury radius was about 15 yards. When we were going through our training back in the day, very few men couldn't throw the required distance which was a little over 15 yds. Most guys could throw them over 35 yards. I only remember two guys in our training company of a 100 men, couldn't throw far enough, so they got special training till they could. It wasn't that they didn't have the strength to throw, but because they didn't know how to throw. I remember thinking, didn't these guys do sports or have PE since elementary school.

 

The grenades we used were the same model in service since the 50's, they only weighed about one pound. I recall in the mid '70's a new lighter grenade was developed, probably to facilitate those who couldn't throw the heavier grenade far enough. BTW, we had training grenades that emitted smoke, but were still considered a live grenade, since they did contain explosives. After demonstrating that you could throw dummy grenades, then you were allowed to use real grenades.

 

BTW the woman in the short video, is not throwing the grenade the way that is demonstrated in training.

Option one - throw grenade, blow up enemy and self

Option two - use different weapon

 

My guess is that most women are smart enough to figure this one out

In the US military she wouldn't get to use or even hold a live grenade, till she demonstrated proficiency will  a dummy or sims grenade. I suspect these aren't US military personnel,  probably N. Korean or Chinese who would have similar training to US Military, which leads me to suspect this was staged or a prank on a female correspondent,reporter or author.
