Hey guys, Ill try to articulate whats going on in my arm as I feel it.
I know this is my first post And heres my background.
I have NO CLUE hard fast i throw. I have thrown some curves. I try sliders but have given up at this point cuz i have no control of my fastball and thats the first goal is to gain velocity and control then add to my pitches.
So ive been throwing for about a month now every 3 days. Some times I would be really anxious to throw so Id go on 2 days rest and it would hurt. So i would Make sure not to throw for 4 days. So now I pretty much only go every 3 days…Is that fine? I throw about 50 pitches sometimes on the 4 days rest i can get in 100 before my arm starts to hurt. But when it hurts i stop period.
Now for the discription, I feel the pain in my bicep, i say underneath feeling in my bicep…from the front bulge to the inner elbow… Usually minor discomfort dull pain, usually immediately after release, and i quit. Now even more rarely i have a pain in my wrist/thumb. It doesnt hurt the thumb but the thumb side of the wrist hurts.
I dont have video…clock… pictures but im wondering is it because ive never really thrown for about 6 years and i just need to get the arm in shape? Is it more likely mechical? It seems like i can throw more and longer everytime i go out. Im 22…I was a Navy SEAL and never played High School ball. But one of my best friends was a AA pitcher and i talked to him about pitching and it got me wanting to learn how to do it. Now I sit there and watch pitchers on tv all the time and figure out the mechanics. Id like to try pitching for a College Club(not the Universities team obvly) just a club if i get good enough…
So because of my age I imagine that might change your guys perspective upon my situation and wear and tear… i just dont know how it all works yet.
