I haven’t posted in a while, winter hit hard and it has just warmed up so I’ve been throwing for about a week. Things were really good until I went and threw today, and after maybe 10 pitches my arm hurt and I didn’t want to push it any further. I had my buddy film me from the side, back, and front (keep in mind my arm hurt during these pitches) so I could look at what I’m doing and see if I’m doing anything that would be causing my arm pain. It hurts above my elbow, kind of between my bicep and my tricep on the inside of my arm. Not muscle pain, feels like its on the bone or something…maybe a tendon?
Anyways, here is the video:
What do you guys see that I’m doing wrong? What am I doing right? What could be causing the pain?
I can tell right off the bat that I’m taking a step back before I wind up. That needs to stop. It also looks like I drop my arm really far back behind me when I start my pitch. I also noticed that my elbow alignment is a little off. Maybe a lot off. My head is a bit cocked to the side when I complete the pitch. But from what I can tell, it doesn’t look like anything I’m doing would be causing the pain in my arm.
Any tips and advice is greatly appreciated!
