Gaining Velo

Ok at the beginning of every baseball season in my citie we have a pitching tournament…for all the pitchers…we have contests for the longest throw, biggest pitch count, who can throw the fastest, ect.

and this year this kid from minnesota moved in to my citie and he pitches around the same speed as me

i always compete in the fastest thrower contest and i usuallly win…but this year im afraid that he is gonna beat me

oh oh and i also have like 6 trophies for the fastest thrower…and if i win a seventh trophie for the contest i would set a record for the most trophies for THAT contest

and so i was just wondering if anybody had any good exercises or tips on gaining velocity…thanks :smiley: :smiley: :slight_smile: 8)

Well the most important thing to remember is to NOT get hurt…trust me. It’s not worth it.

Here is a great article with tips on increasing velocity. Maybe you can pick something up there.
