In my last article, I talked about the questions I’ve been getting from parents and pitchers concerned about forearm and elbow soreness. Well if you liked that, you need to check out today’s video.
The other day, I was able to catch up with Strength Coach and Grip Strength Specialist, Jedd Johnson. Jedd’s a former college pitcher who turned to competing in Strong Man competitions, and now teaches athletes how to become super strong and powerful.
Watch this video to hear Jedd’s awesome forearm training tips, including:
[list_item]Why conventional forearm training leads to muscle imbalance (and how to avoid it).[/list_item]
[list_item]How to make your own “tube ball” for training your arm anywhere.[/list_item]
[list_item]How you can use a rubber band to strengthen your forearm.[/list_item]
Note: Jedd swears he wasn’t holed up in a bunker for this interview.
Like me, he has small kids and was hiding out so he wouldn’t disturb them.
(though I think he really just wanted to look extra intimidating)
