Hey everyone! I’m a 5’8 130 pound left handed 16 year old that plans on pitching for my first year…I am not pitching for the school this year but i do plan on playing senior league which starts some time toward the end of May…I do not know my exact velocity but last summer I hit 71 MPH on the radar gun…and ive had a growth spirt and gotten a lot stronger since then so Im guessing I can throw at least 75 with a 4 seamer…but anyway…I can throw a 4 seam and 2 seam fastball somewhat accurate but am outside on righties a lot and low on lefties…I think its just i have to get over the fear of hitting someone…i also can throw a 10-4 curveball fairly accurate and am working on a 12-6 curve and changeup…I also purchased Body Fortress Creatine Drink Mix…(its the really cheap stuff from Wal-Mart)…i havent started taking it yet because I really dont have a place to work out everyday and dont know the effects of it when youre not on a regular routine…i could easily do the simple workouts that dont require weights, benches, etc…such as sit-ups, crunches, pull ups, push ups, core exercises on workout ball, and anything else that doesnt require weights…but the following is a list of what Im really trying to ask:
1.How many pitches should i have and what should they be?
2.Anything i can do to raise my velocity/accuracy in about a month or so??
3.Will that creatine be OK for me to take with only the above workouts?
4.Should I build a mound to practice pitching from or is flat ground OK?
5.What other workouts would be effective for me to do?
THANKS IN ADVANCE!!!
