Strech the elatics what do you mean by that?
If you mean what I think you mean then you are saying that there is a strech that you can get from this. Saying that you can get a strech in the shoulder from tubing before and after game.
The reason I think weighted balls are waste
They take throwing away from pitching off a mound at full velocity
You can gain the same things with tubing SUCH AS
Increase velocity and conditioning
I know people don’t think that Tubing increase velocity but I have noticed it has keep me strong later into season and I did increase in velocity too about 5-6 mph.
A study I have found on tubing
NATA: Tube testing
By Anthony R. Edwards
In-season strengthening with surgical tubing can increase pitching velocity in high school baseball players, according to research from Oregon State University presented at the NATA meeting in Los Angeles in June.
Neeraj Beheti, PT, a graduate student, and Rod Harter, PhD, ATC, an associate professor of exercise and sport science at Oregon State University in Corvallis, studied 24 high school baseball pitchers aged 15 to 19. Before testing began, the pitchers’ velocity was measured by a JUGS radar gun and internal and external rotation peak torque was measured by a KinCam 500-H dyananometer.
The pitchers were divided into test and control groups. Athletes in the test group did six separate exercises (seated rowing, forward punches, shoulder shrugs, standing internal rotation, standing external rotation, and a standing exercise for the supraspinatus) with progressively resistive surgical tubing over the six-week test period. The control group continued with regular baseball exercises. All athletes were instructed not to participate in any other weight or resistive exercise training, nor did the pitchers do any of these exercises on game days. The players were allowed on-field baseball training, such as batting practice and fielding, however.
No injuries, soreness, or fatigue were reported in either group.
After the six weeks of exercise, the treatment group’s maximum velocity increased by 6.2 mph, compared to a 1.5 mph increase in the control group. The researchers found no significant differences in isokinetic peak torque between the test and control groups.
