Does a strong rotator cuff equal more velocity? I have no Idea
This is just my opinion, but i dont believe so. It may reduce the risk of injury though.
The stronger your Rotator Cuff muscles are, the harder your body will let you throw.
But your velocity is produced in your core, not in your RC.
Hey Chris. Are you sitting down? I agree with you here. I’ll add though, that momentum generated by the lower body is a factor also. No desire to debate how much. Just that it’s a factor.
thank you very much for your answers
The rotator cuff is an “enabler”. Just as the core helps stabilize the body while lifting a weight (especially overhead), the rotator cuff muscles help stabilize the shoulder joint so that it can withstand the forces put on it by throwing a baseball at high speed.
oh that makes a lot of sense that you for the answer Roger
I won’t argue that momentum is important.
I just don’t think it’s the whole enchilada as Mills and Rushall seem to.
