Building Your Own “Velocity” Program – Step 3: Training “INTENT”

Posted by:

Okay, LOOOoooong overdue…

Finally back with Step 3 for building your own velocity program… This is very often the #1 Missing Ingredient in a pitcher’s development… And this, in my opinion, is mainly for two reasons, or two trends that have become commonplace these days:

  1. An increased fear over pitchers hurting their arms (hint, less throwing is not always better… if we want the arm to handle the stresses of pitching we must first introduce and prepare the pitcher’s arm for those demands). At the same ...

What About the Back Foot? (and “name that pitcher” contest)

Posted by:

Okay, so mixing it up a little with today’s post. I get asked a lot about pitching mechanics…

Drop and Drive or Tall and Fall?

Posted by:

When it comes to pitching mechanics, you know I’m a big fan of giving young pitchers the freedom to develop their own style… But there have to be some constants, don’t there?

Okay, I’d agree with that… But I also think you want to avoid being too cookie cutter.
