In two weeks and one day I will be exactly 11 months into my rehab from Tommy John Surgery. I, like a lot of pitchers out there, decided to model my mechanics after a pro last year. Unfortunately i was horrendously out of shape and my pitcher of choice was tim lincecum. Haha. Needless to say I left my elbow WAY above my shoulder plane when delivering the ball and the load on my ucl was too much. Since i have been across all sites and sat on Chris O’learys the most. With this i believe i have developed pretty sound mechanics. I will post pictures next week as that is when I begin to throw off of a mound for the first time since the op. Until then I am just looking for all kinds of advice. Throwing program. Running Program. Eating Program.
Currently I am throwing/long tossing 3 days a week as my PT instructs me. I am able to air it out to about 80-85 yards for the last 20 or so throws.
Before and after throwing my partner and I run a mile. After the first we stretch after the second we run 6 100yard sprints. Then once again stretch.
The only thing i am worried about is my body not being strong enough again and my arm geting tired and throwing my mechanics out of sync. Once again I will post pictures as soon as I am able to get them.
I am currently 6’4 230 but I am looking to get down to 220 and be in better form.
Any tips or really anything would help
