Off Day Pitching Workouts


#1

I am a high school coach and want to know what you guys do post game pitching days until the next start.
Besides throwing pens, long toss, pickoffs, running, abs…is there anything else I can incorporate for my pitchers? How about specific running or core training…pitching mechanic stuff…mental side?

Thanks

The medicine ball is a wonderful tool to use in the off days as well as the swiss ball. Both tools challenge pitchers to not only recruit specific muscles, but force pitchers to practice perfect balance. Also, you can do POWER exercises with both of these training tools that focus on explosion.

There is another tool called Bosu Balance Trainer for squats and other lower body exercises. It is AWESOME.
