Hey guys here’s a little update:
I have now brought my weight down to 178 while losing fat I have noticed muscle gain.
My next velo day is on Monday and I have a bullpen tonight and I will recap it after.

I’m planning on buying Ben Brewster’s book (Building the 95 mph body).

I’ve been switching from a straight bar to a trap bar for deadlifts. I’ve noticed that is puts a lot less pressure on my back and makes me focus on better form.

Here’s a sample workout for me:
10-15 minutes of cardio or 1 mile
Ab work (medball work/ab workout circuit)
Whatever day it is (chest,legs,abs,back/shoulders)
Scap work
Hip strengthening

Please keep posting.

My son is also a left handed pitcher sitting in the mid 70s going into his freshman year. He will not turn 15 until late June.

He’s a tad smaller than you, 5’8" 125.

Like you, he also does the Driveline program religiously and lifts several times a week.

Having a point of comparison would be great.

Hey man I haven’t been on here in a while sorry about that but right now I’m 6’0 around 200lbs. Im going to a juco next year and right now I’m around 81-83 I am a late bloomer but your son is ahead of me velo wise going into his freshman year compared to where I was at that time, make sure he keeps working hard and stays on his stuff.

Mustang21, when you say “pull down” what does that mean? Crow hop and throw??
