If you want to throw fast you must move fast…thus increase your momentum into a stride that it at least your height if not more.
And improve your overall mechanics. There is no other way to improve velocity.
(this is my question)
Hi, I have a quick question to ask if you don’t mind. A little about me. I am 18 6’2" about 230 LBs Pretty big lean kid. I am a pitcher of course and will be attending a D1 college in a few months. So I am prepping to become the best I can be. As of now my fastball has been everywhere. I could hit 90 if i throw my hardest but constant in the 85-87 mph zone. One thing i would like to ask is when pitching how loose should the arm really be? When I throw loose my velocity usually is at 83 84 but when I stiffen my arm I throw about 88 89. I have never iced my arm in my life nor do i ever if not rarely have pain. What would you suggest I do to increase my velocity? I know and have read about longer strides and getting all the momentum sideways towards the plate
