Dumbbells


#1

What are some dumbbell exercises I could do that would help me in pitching? As of right now I am out of shape throughout my entire body. So Id imagine there is something to gain in terms of velocity through weightlifting…but I am just guessing. So if there are any dumbbell exercises I could do would anyone mind listing them?

Adjustable weight dumbbells are the way to go. That way you can just buy more plate weights when you get stronger rather than buy more dumbbells.
