Velocity

So what is the key to throwing harder?
The different types of exercizes etc.
What is the thing you have to do bottom line to throw harder because i hear a lot of diffrent things on this topic and i dont know which one to trust.
I already throw pretty hard at low 80mph. But by jr. year i must touch 90
thats just me.

Mechanics are huge in throwing hard.

Read some Nyman articles if you’re interested.

how can i find them?

Lanky posted these awhile ago. I think they are worth showing again.

The Zito analysis is a good read. States some causes of his velocity drop. How what appear to be small changes to the eye can dramatically effect velocity whether good or bad.

I haven’t read this yet, but it seems like it is pretty informative.

read this one last night. I personally liked it.

If you are really interested check out the setpro website. I am extremely new to it and very uninformed. There are other users who can better explain it to you.

While mechanics are the essential part of pitching, make sure you’re in good physical shape too.
Make sure you cut all the extra fat off. After all any unnecessary weight just slows you down.
Working out in the gym helps also as it makes you stronger, but remeber to concentrate in doing high repetitions with low to mid weights.
Having a strong mid-section along with a strong back will boost your velocily and help you keep your arm safer.

A good example is Stephen Strasburg, who gained ~13 mph by turning himself from a chubby overweighted slough into a slim and strong 103 mph hurler.
