When getting your arm loose, you need to let distance dictate your intensity before you start throwing harder on a line. But how do you do this indoors? In this quick video, I demonstrate how I teach baseball players to get their arms loose when warming up into a net indoors.
Weighted baseball velocity programs continue to rise in popularity in baseball pitchers of all levels despite us not knowing why they may improve velocity, the long term effects on the body, or the most appropriate program to perform. This article summarizes the results of a 2-year research study we have performed on the safety and effectiveness of weighted baseball velocity training programs.
Knowing when to shut down after a demanding period of time and how to best prepare the arm in the off-season is the key to maximizing a pitchers health, strength, endurance and recovery period in season. Without well timed rest and a clear intention of how to best prepare the arm in the off-season, pitchers may wonder why they are lacking endurance or velocity in season, or even worse, why they may be breaking down. When pitchers truly understands the importance of “resting” and “rebuilding” their arms over a substantial period of time (4-6 weeks) in the off-season without stepping on a mound, they will best position themselves to not only peak at the right time (beginning of the season), but maintain or even enhance their base throughout the season.
I want every baseball player in the world to perform an appropriate arm care program, that’s why I am giving mine away for free here at EBP. I’ve developed this program over the course of two decades based on the science of throwing a baseball and the science behind exercise selection. This is the foundational program that we have used at Champion PT and Performance on everyone from Little League pitchers to Cy Young winners. Start performing this today and you will be well ahead of the curve. Countless big leaguers perform this exact program, get it here for free today!
