My high school schedule is semi complete, but if they pattern that they have on the semi completed schedule stays true for the rest of the schedule, we should play around 3 games a week. Except for one week where we play six! :o
After reading the posts from my last topic on this thread, I’m looking for anyone’s imput on a good throwing program for the spring season.
I was thinking of doing 2 days of weighted ball/Jager long toss outside of games and 1 day of just long toss(possibly the day after a start, and it would just be light long toss). That would add up to 6 days of throwing a week. I won’t be throwing more than six times a week.
I like the post on my other topic about Trevor Bauers inseason program. But it would be hard to stick to that because my pitching schedule is not a consistent enough to use it.
I figure that I should be able to throw long toss as my warm up during my games during the week. I’m not sure how much they will want to have us throw at practices in-between games, but I imagine if it’s warm then we will long toss. If that is the case, then I think that I could throw my weighted balls after practice.
I normally use the weighted ball program found on this website, but I will adjust if I am also doing long loss. I think after long tossing, I could do 10 with each ball.
I’m just throwing out some ideas now. I’m not sure how much my arm will be able to handle or how much time I will have. It will all depend on my schedule and the weather. I really want to strengthen up my arm, so I can be consistently in the low 80’s at least. I think I can probably get there with improved mechanics, so hopefully with stregthening my arm I can throw above that.
Any input is appreciated. Thanks!
