J Bands and Long Toss

I was wondering if you think j band exercises and a long toss program can help add velocity or whether it is for more arm endurance? If you have done one or both and have had good gains let me know.


My varsity pitchers all got a J-Band in their equipment bags this Spring (actually, they’re getting them on Monday now that our spikes and turfs are in), and the head coach and I are having them do a nice little shoulder routine 3 times a week between starts. Whether you’re using the j-band or theraband, etc., this shoulder work is really key to maintaining a healthy arm and building the strength that will provide the foundation for velocity gains and velocity endurance (being able to throw hard late in games).

we do J-Bands every single day before throwing, and it has definitely helped in staying healthy and getting my arm loose and ready to throw.
