I recently have started this workout program for weighted balls (http://www.drivelinebaseball.com/download/weightedbaseballs.pdf) and i am hoping it increases my veocity to about 80 mph. I started a little late, and as it stacks up now, i am 3 weeks into the 11 week program with 6 weeks until our first game. I am hoping to make varsity this year, and because of the depth on varsity I am going to really need to pick up my velocity to get noticed. Just wondering if anyone has any advice on what weeks i should cut out or If I should just continue the workout on into the season? Also, not sure if I have mentioned this before, but throughout the last couple of years, my left middle finger has become enflamed on the tip, and everytime I throw a fastball (I mostly throw 2 seams) it rubs the finger and hurts. I was wondering if anybody has a solution to stop this blister (?) as the enflament has started early this year.
P.s. I have been working out, albeit inconsistently, and am now up to 145 pounds, and am hoping to get to the 150 mark before our tryouts on March 1st. I have not gotten gunned yet so I don't know whether I have increased my velocity (was at 73-74 at beginning of log).
