Finisher: Blog or "Big Girl" over the shoulder throws.  The Blob which has been renamed "Big Girl" is a big exercise ball that I filled with water.  I think it probably weighs about 150 pounds.  It is a good finisher to take the ball from the ground and go up and over the shoulder.  This ball is also far easier on the driveway than the concrete Atlas stones.
