I was thinking about the things that I want to work on with my mechanics, and I believe I found a good way for me to warm up and progress into my mechanics gradually.
It’s not really complicated I don’ think.
I start out with my feet like I would be if I were pitching from the stretch.
1)take a small step and throw, focus on arm action-smooth, continuous, and getting it up before my foot lands(I find this thinking helps with the fluidity of my arm action)
2)gradually increase my step and my arm speed as I warm up.
3)work to a slide step stride, not extremely far, still working on my arm action
- keep making my stride longer and more aggressive until I’m striding full speed(still a slide step) while maintaining the same fluid arm action as before.
5)Once I see my arm action is going well with the slide step, go with a leg lift.
6)Once the leg lift looks good, go to the windup.
All throws would be from a mound.
This stuff is in addition to the usual stuff I do.
I thought I would post this to see what you all think and in case someone wanted something new to try.
