I’m a graduated senior and looking to play college ball next year, most likely as a walk on/preferred walk on. I’m stuck in the low 80s, and I NEED to get into the upper 80s or minimally mid 80s in order to make the team/log some innings for this upcoming season.
I’m a workout-aholic, lifting 3x a week and running distance/sprints twice a week. I work on flexibility constantly and am very flexible. Basically, I have the tools, but I need to know how to use them in order to fully reach my potential.
My coaches for my club team/at my baseball camp this summer said that I use too much arm/not enough of my legs and hip power, which will lead to lessened velocity and less control. Does anyone know of a way to ensure that I am using my legs/hips so I’m consciously aware of it and know when I’m using it? I know that will make it easier on my arm and I"ll be able to throw harder with less effort as well.
Any tips/drills/advice is appreciated. If necessary, I can post footage of my mechanics
