Is it possible to go from 65mph to 90s with workout and practice?


#1

is it possible over time with work? could it be done with weightlifting?


#2

any input?


#3

How else would you get there; go to sleep throwing 65 and wake up throwing 90?


#4

He is asking if it’s even possible. It may be possible. Give more details about yourself.


#5

65 at what age? If 13, yes. If 18, doubt it.


#6

Yes, I get it. But the real question is, how else would it happen???

I think so. I went from 76mph as 17yo High School Sr. to 81 as a 19 year old Freshman and then 88 mph by sophomore season. (and back then throwing 90 was a Wow type of thing)
But I had a body frame that could put on 25 lbs of muscle from 6’3" 165 to 6’3 190 over that 2 1/2 year period.
If you are maxed out in size, flexibility, and mechanics (and I can’t imagine you are at 65mph) then that big a gain is probably not possible, but if your still developing, sure why not.

Yes, every pitcher who throws 90 threw 65 at some point. Most were like 12 though:)

Gotta check out Driveline Baseball. I recommend it to everyone.
