Although pitching is the center of the game, pitchers are often misinformed or do not have the resources to help them meet their full potential. Here we focus on the one key component in the pitching motion that will solve your typical softball pitching problems. This one solution can help you achieve:
What is the one solution we deliver time and time again?
Simple. We teach you how to use your hips to create arm speed. Best way to understand the importance of hip generated arm speed is to think about driving a car. The feet are used to control the speed of the car. The hands make sure the car stays on the road. Far too many pitchers are using the hands to generate speed and control the ball. Don't try this at home but imagine trying to push the pedals and steer the car with just your arms.... Did you make it out of your driveway? Probably not.
By solving this problem, you will quickly see results in:
Control at max speed. Do you tend to slow down to have better control?
Mastering off speed pitches. If your arm is creating your arm speed, you have to change the arm speed to change the pitch speed. Not effective and good batters will recognize and adjust.
Pain free movement. Your entire body joins your arm to help accelerate your arm and more importantly, slow down your arm to absorb the force of the throw.
Before adding strength training, athletes should be reaching at least 50 mph by high school with proper movement patterns.
