[quote=“LTadrian”]Would you recommend Mark Rippetoe’s program over Steven Ellis’s program for working out and getting stronger for pitching?
I am doing research and really thinking about getting TuffCuff, but if Starting Strength is really as good as it says i might look into that instead.[/quote]
I like Tuff-Cuff - I looked at it last night and realized how good it was. It has prescribed workouts for strength, flexibility, pylometrics, & soft tissue work (foam rolling - but he uses an ART). Tie in the 60 & 90 day throwng program - it is a good resource that focuses on pitching. Which I am assuming you are interested in.
Starting Strength is a good resource - but how is it on those other topics? I mean in the link provided Coach R pretty much says this is the workout that he would propose for the novice lifter - how does that workout translate to functional ability for a pitcher?
If I had limited $$$ I would buy Tuff Cuff instead of Starting Strength.
