Is is bad to do band work every time a kid throws a baseball?
They usually do the Jaegar band work before they throw and the Jobes after they throw.
Thoughts and suggestion please.
A good warm up is always preferred before throwing, especially pitching.Nothing makes me battier than seeing a kid run in from a position in the field or worse the bench and go up to the mound with no warm up. This indicates two things....the roster is too small and or the coach is not prepared.There are a lot of variations to a good warm up. To me it should have a couple of elements to it. A general body warm up. Some sort of active stretching. A warm up specific to the arm/shoulder.So, my son typically would take a very short jog. Followed by some active stretches or foam rolling if he feels tight anywhere. Then J-bands. Then a quick wrist weight circuit. A couple of plyo ball throws (specific to warming up the shoulder) then start playing catch. Starting nice and easy and then working up.That is what he prefers and he worked to the point (knock on wood) he rarely has any soreness to speak of.
Do relief pitchers do the same band work exercises as starting pitchers do.
What do the KC Royals do? I saw Davis doing some kind of band work before he threw a baseball last night.
Yeah all pitchers would do the same work.No idea what the Royals do and it doesn't matter. These are guys that are already so conditioned and at the top of portions of 1% of the skill set they may or may not do things differently.Look up throwers 10 or Jaeger Band exercises online. There are pretty standard movements that all players, not just pitchers, should be doing. If you prefer bands to light weights (I do) the throwers 10 can be duplicated with bands pretty much. Those things will give a good idea.
In the off season how much band work and jobes exercises should the pitcher be doing?
