Thanks for clarifying, DM. House also makes the same claims as 1. and 2. But he also claims it helps you maintain good timing thereby eliminating flaws which he categorizes as precursors to injury (e.g. opening up early). I'm still waiting to see the entire injury prevention model in which he supposedly identifies a whole set of precursors to injury. Maybe I'll get to see that when I re-certify with the NPA in November.
This is good. House likes to use the term "functional strength" but he would definitely agree with being fit to pitch. Are you aware "Fit to Pitch" is the title of one of House's books? :o
