Baseball Pitcher Unleashed
The Pitcher Unleashed program is a coaching and training program focused on high school baseball pitchers. The emphasis is to help the high school baseball pitcher, whether a current team member or aspiring pitcher with:
- Pitching movement mechanics
- Pitcher specific strength
- Championship mindset
The focus is to help the high school pitcher succeed at the high school level and beyond.
Choices for instruction:
For the baseball pitcher, there are camps and there are coaches. These are important options to teach the skills of pitching. This includes teaching the specific pitches, the strategy of pitching and fielding from the pitching position.
The Pitcher Unleashed Program:
Then there is the training and coaching of the other key aspects of a successful pitcher. This includes strength & conditioning, correcting any limitations in the pitching motion, power development, core development, high-performance nutrition and developing the pitcher’s championship mindset. That’s where the Pitcher Unleashed program fills the gap. Although there are different trainers and training programs for athletes, our program only focuses on the baseball pitcher!
We help the baseball pitcher:
- Increase Velocity
- Improve Pitching Accuracy
- Reduce Elbow and Shoulder Soreness, Pain & Injury
The Pitcher Unleashed Program focuses on:
- Strength and conditioning specific for the pitcher.
- Removing obstructions that hinder the pitching motion.
- Strengthening weaknesses in the pitcher’s body that limit his ability to effectively throw with high velocity and effectiveness.
Throwing motion from the mound:
Soreness, pain or injury in the throwing arm:
A pitcher pitches with his entire body. When a pitcher starts to experience arm issues (shoulder, elbow or wrist) soreness, pain or injury, almost everybody focuses only on the area that is experiencing the issue. If there is an injury, this must be addressed first. However, the next step to correct the cause of the issue is to address the complete pitching motion and find any limitations, weaknesses and inefficiencies that cause the pitcher to lose velocity within the pitching motion. This lost velocity will cause the pitcher to overuse his arm attempting to make up for this lost velocity.
Lacking velocity in the pitch:
If the pitcher is lacking velocity in his pitch and he is old enough for his body to handle it, he needs to start with the initial stages of strength training. This starts with a general strength training program to prepare and strengthen his body for more advanced stages of strength training later. This program must train his body to move better rather than only train his muscles to become stronger.
To clarify, machine based isolation training trains the muscles in the body in isolation of the other parts of the body. Movement based training trains the body to work together which is how you need to prepare the body to increase velocity without increasing stress on the arm. Movement based training includes using free weights, body weigh exercises, suspension straps and other such devices. Even if we look at some “machines” such as a cable system, these can be added to improve movement as long as the body is stabilizing the movement being trained.
Once general strength has been developed, the pitcher needs to focus on pitcher specific strength training. Our program guides the pitcher through this entire cycle of strength training including which type of strength and conditioning is needed during the four seasons: offseason, preseason, regular season and post season.
The start of the program:
The start of our in-person program is an assessment and analysis of the pitcher, his physical balance, mental approach and his lifestyle habits. We want to ensure that the pitcher has the best tools available so that he has the greatest chance of success.
- Movements in the pitching delivery: lunge + twist + push
- Spinal movement ability: flexion, extension and rotation
- Shoulder alignment, stability and mobility
Postural alignment assessment:
- Body position in space
- Standing spinal curvature
- Lower body tracking
Core functional/balance assessment:
- Abdominal flexor chain balance
- Pelvis functional stability
- Abdominal rotational balance
This program will help the high school pitcher increase pitching velocity, power and accuracy, reduce overall fatigue, and reduce shoulder & arm fatigue, pain, soreness and injury. The pitcher will have more joy for his sport and less anxiety, stress or pressure.
We address the pitcher as a whole, looking at each key area to address the biggest areas of needed improvement. These areas include:
- Postural balance.
- Core functional stability.
- Restrictions with movement ability.
- Ability to overcome setbacks.
Coaching and training is online, in-person or a combination of both options!
