I currently sit at 82 on the mound as a junior, and the season is winding down. I don’t pitch much, if ever, so I am going to start training for velocity this coming week… all the way until next season. It’s pretty much the last stretch for me… senior year, and I NEED to throw hard. Not for scholarships, etc., but just because I want it so badly. Admittedly, I haven’t put much effort into velocity training, but now I am extremely serious about it.
I believe I read an article, possibly by cressey, awhile back that talked about something along the lines of high risk/reward training, and that a player substantially increased his velocity in the off season.
I’m thinking Long toss with weighted balls as well
Tons of med ball tosses
Not sure what else TBH
Do note, I AM serious about this… I do not care about the risk at this point, if it has a chance of high reward
