Shoulder / Hip seperation & Throwing off-season


#1

How does this shoulder / hip seperation feel? I have tried it and my speed has actually gone down, when I try to do it. I guess I am doing it wrong. Also, for those training in the offseason what type of throwing program are you on? Can you give me an example?


#2

How are you timing yourself? You actually own a radar gun?


#3

I’ve found I can delay shoulder rotation longer if during my stride I keep my glove higher than or eqaul to me front shoulder


#4

Yes. I own a radar gun


#5

impressive… wish I had one of them … how much was it?


#6

It belongs to my friend. Who uses it for the local minor league team here (hudson valley renegades , penn league). It’s a jugs radar gun and I think he said it costs about a $1000.00 dollars.

When ever you make changes to your mechanics, you should expect to get worse before getting better. I don’t know how long you have been practicing the hip/shoulder separation but maybe you just need to give it some time. You need to become comfortable with it.

Thanks Roger. I will keep at it. I figured as much.
