My son will be 15 in September and is a rising freshman. He is 5-8 and 180 pounds, throws 70-73 for his fastball, low 60’s curve, and 64-66 for his changeup. He has pretty good mechanics and was taught to throw based on NPA methods and recommendations. He never has had an arm issue. Been pitching since he was 10.
He also has not hit puberty yet. He is currently playing with the HS for summer ball and doing pretty well, 10 innings pitched over 3 weekends, 13 KOs, 4 BB, 3 or 4 hits, no ER, 3 runs given up total. He is attending weight training 3 days a week with the team.
He is only one of 2 kids on the HS team who has not hit or gone through puberty yet. He is a pretty strong kid naturally, but needs to gain strength especially at the plate if he is going to get playing time. We want him to get into a weight training program that will help him mature and get stronger but not do any harm. I have seen some posts on here about safe weight training and am not sure of the final recommendations.
Any specific tips/routines that would be recommeded for weekly workouts?
He also plays football and wrestles though baseball is his passion. Will probably not wrestle this year as a freshman to focus on preparing for baseball season.
