hey guys whats up.
I have been thinking alot about how pitchers get their velocity from.
What i have been really stressing for the past 4-5 years was long toss because everyone said it increased your velocity.
But just recently maybe for only 1 month did i really stress attacking my leg muscles. And i mean strengthening them and conditioning them.
I would weight lift on my legs every other day for 1 month. My legs became increasingly bigger and i now felt that i could pitcher much harder and my arm would not hurt as much.
Do you really need to long toss to get good velocity or could you just strength your legs, abs, and upper body by simply weight lifting and conditioning.
I know you have to throw though of course in order to throw hard. BUt ya wouldn’t this simply work. Just simply weight training.
I do plan on pitching bull pens 2-3 times a week. And play catch every day. But do you honestly need to long toss to increase velocity.
I don’t think so. My own opinion. Comment on what you think and how important long toss is to a pitchers velocity.
