So I have decided to renew my log, even though the last one I never posted on. So this one is a new deal. Enjoy and ask me if you have any questions with my workouts and/or other stuff I post. I will update as often as possible.
Weight: 180 lbs
Body Fat: 18%
Body type: Stocky
Mechanics: Low 3/4 arm slot, somewhat high leg kick (knee goes to chest high), seems to be in good shape
4 seam fastball- tailing action, 80-81 maybe 82 tops
2 seam fastball- late run and sink, 10-4 type break, 79 mph or so
Curveball- rapidly improving, can have big sharp break, Idk exactly velocity maybe low 60s
Circle Changeup- Haven’t thrown it very much, am still very inconsistent with it. When on looks alot like my 2 seam, looks to be a pitch I can bury in the dirt with 2 strikes.
Velocity- low 80s tops
Control- Good, can hit spots pretty consistently, although occasionally I lose my release point
Movement- pretty good, needs to be a little more consistent though.
Things I want to improve on:
Mechanics: want to get out in front more, finish less upright, have back be flat after release
Velocity: hoping to gain 3-4 mph with weighted ball workouts and hopefully be in upper 80s by next spring
Workouts: need to be more consistent, need to avoid burnout, will be intense for couple weeks and then will burn out.
Nutrition: need to avoid soda and sweets.
Long Term Goal- Play professional baseball
Short Term Goals:
- Sit in upper 80s by next spring tryouts (middle of march)
- Continue improving changeup
- Make either Varsity team, or make Amateur team
- Impress scouts/coaches at showcase (July 31)
- Get to 12% body fat
Reasons to complete these goals:
- love the game
- want to prove people wrong
How I will accomplish this:
- Will be much more consistent with my Offseason workout plan
- Get better each and every day
- play as much baseball as I can
No excuses, No regrets, No giving up
So here I go…
