Hey guys, I just posted in the injury forum as well if you want a more indepth idea of my situation.
Im 22, Freshman in college this year, was a Navy SEAL, havent played organized baseball for about 8 years (lol). But i had a AA Lefty friend I spent alot of time with and he got me thinkin about pitching. So now I wouldl ike to play some form of pitcher at my school (not on the real team just a club at the school, they travel to other schools as well with a try out…etc)
So Ive been throwing for about a month now i can do 50pitches every 3-4 days. Sometimes on the longer rest i feel 100% fine with my elbow/bicep and get in 100 pitches over two session split in about 1.5hr.
Thing is ive been doing 50 pitches in sets of 8(how many baseballs i have) and i throw into a strikezone bag on to a backstop. I pick the balls up and go back to throwing at a semi intense rate over the 8 balls and repeat…should i rest more, ie true game pace of say 12-15 pitches with a 10min break?
Anyways, Im now wanting to become more organized and learn right from the beginning so if you know a good workout/pitching routine i can use that would be excellent. like a cycle to do and enjoy and build me up correctly. I would love to be any sort of pitcher on a team, i just enjoy the competition and my drive to be a perfectionist… which is what makes pitching interesting to me. I would love to be able to command my arm like a pro.
Any idea or how you do off season/ preseason workout/ups would be highly appreciated.
