My season will be ending in a couple of weeks and I am planning for the off-season. I don't know if we will have fall ball or not - but we might.
I am trying to decide whether to shut the whole thing down for awhile or to keep throwing. I have been throwing pretty much for the last year with only a one or two week break every couple of months (Christmas, spring break, etc). I have mixed in some body weight exercises and running. My arm does not hurt after I pitch and doesn't feel "tired" when I work between starts.
I would like to take some private lessons with my pitching coach during the off season and throughout the winter - but don't want to take them if I don't condition my arm during this same period, but I also don't want to overuse my arm. I plan on starting phase 1 of tuff cuff probably in middle of July or the first of August.
I will be 15 on August 1st.
Any advice on what I should do about throwing in the offseason?
