I have decided to finally make a personal log, as I am lacking motivation right now.
I have run into some hard times these last few months due to injury. During the summer, I microscopically tore UCL. I have now recovered from this, but due to the injury I had a very easy going fall, as I never threw live.
Currently, battling wrist tendinitis, because of my poor form bench pressing. Just cannot catch a break.
Last Spring Season Quick Summary:
Last year, I had the stuff to be the ace on the team, but was lacking control of every pitch, but the fastball. I went 1-5 with an era well over 5.00… Very disappointing. I had two great starts, both complete games, losing one of them by one run. These both came in warm weather games, where my fastball was great. Great Velo, and lots of run. 3 of my starts came in 35 degrees or less… When my fastball was not as effective, and harder to control. Weighed 153 coming into college, 165 in spring.
School: Ashford University (NAIA)
Weight: 177 (Have gained 10 pounds already since beginning of school by lifting, and eating plenty of food)
Velocity: 86 to 89
Max Velocity: 91
Off Speed: Slider, Change
Dumbbell press: 85 (Have not maxed in this… Unsure)
Squat: 290 (Very Weak in the Legs, maybe due to bad form etc)
Short Term Goals: To Get motivated! To get driven to make gains again! To destroy my body in the weight room every single day!
Long Term Goals: To throw 93 mph, and weigh 190 this spring, with increased strength everywhere.
I need to get motivated once again…
