Hi everyone, I read everywhere that supinating the arm is not good because it may cause some serious pain and injury to your arm, elbow etc.
But how can you throw a good 12-6 curve without “doing the karate-chop”? I remember someone saying that doing the karate-chop is supinating your forearm and I’ve been taught that’s how you throw a curveball…
And if you stop and think about it it is quite hard to throw a 12-6 curve pronating your forearm isn’t it?
This is how I do when I pitch a curveball. I do the “karate chop” to release the ball and as soon as I let it go I pronate my forearm.
Is this how you are supposed to throw a curveball?
Is there any more advice about throwing a wicked 12-6 curveball without putting extra pressure on your arm?
