Are You Wasting Your Arm?

Your throwing arm only has so many live throwing action in it.
The more live throwing you make where you use your throwing arm for balance, the shorter your pitching career and the more you become a Tommy John risk.

Pitchers asking for my help discover how to measure their movements without having to throw a live pitch.

Your body, whether moving in slow motion or in the quicker competitive mode, your mind's "built-in response mechanism" lets your body react to itself in exactly the same manner.

As part of your instruction, I show you can practice your movements in slow motion, use 
your mind's "built-in response mechanism" cues to finish make sure you finish your motion with a naturally productive and very spontaneous throwing (re)action.

From the comfort of wherever you practice your movements, you master your motion without wasting your arm.

Instead of using your last pitch result to measure your movements, you use the way your body reacts to your actions to tell you your latest movements would dominate the hitter.

Your slow motion, spontaneous throwing reflex means...
  • Your hips consistently pull your throwing hand through the same tiny release window.
  • No matter your grip or release, the opposition will always see a deceptive fastball arm action.
  • The additional energy your lower body channels into your throwing arm enhances your velocity and creates much later ball movement. 
Combine all of the above and you can feel confident the hitters you face will struggle mightily to make solid contact with your pitches.

By knowing how 
your mind's "built-in response mechanism" controls your movements, no longer is it necessary to waste live throwing action to master your motion.
  • In fact, the ability to work on your movements without throwing a pitch makes developing a naturally productive throwing response happen much sooner than later.
