okay first off guys how do you delete threads. I don’t want to spam too many threads on here. But so many off you answer my questions with great responses. So i keep coming back.
Anyways i got a question to ask and something else on my mind. Number 1 i have actually been clocked with a stalker gun. And it says i pitch 80-82mph. I am 17 this year and 5’10 and 170pounds. I am still growing though. Cause one of my relatives was 6’2. Anyways i was wondering whether or not DICK MILLS is right or wrong about long toss. Cause i seen him coaching this kid on you tube. The kid was 14 years old throwing 80mph. And i was like damn. Either that kid is an all star or dick mills is the coach to be. Anyways he says long toss is no good and ruins mechanics. IS he right or wrong.
Also the only way i do my long toss is with ALAN JAEGERS LONG TOSS PROGRAM. Were you use arm circles, then rubber tubing, then you slow stretch your arm out and different distances. I found that it has really helped. But i am kind of skeptical just cause dick mills says you shouldn’t do it. Like honestly I want to do it mon,wed, fri. But if he says its not good then i don’t want to do it.
So should i do long toss or not. And is throwing long toss monday, wed, fri okay and doing 30-50 bullpen tuesday and thursday okay.
Also does leg strengthening with heavy weights increase or decrease your velocity because of your fast and slow twitch muscles. Should i do this or should i just run sprints 5 times a week. Please help me with these 2 questions.
