Warmup routine


#1

Before a game/practice which routine would you use.

Dynamic Warmup/Tubing/Throw or Tubing/Dynamic Warmup/Throw


#2

I’m a big proponent of beginning with a more general full body dynamic warm-up and then a more specific warm-up for the shoulders.

Beginning with a dynamic warm-up will increase blood flow throughout the body, raise the body’s core temperature, and help maintain elasticity in the muscles. A series of shoulder exercises with resistance bands should follow this full body dynamic warm-up. The movements you perform with resistance bands will activate key musculature surrounding the shoulder and prepare it for the upcoming task of throwing.


#3

Absolutely a dynamic warm up.
Dynamic warm ups “wake the body up”. I’m sure some would disagree but I like to do long toss before starting. It gives the body a really good stretch, and helps give the feel of throwing with intent during the pull down phase.


#4

You have to warm up the whole body since pitching and throwing in general is a full body dynamic activity, but I’m going to speak more about the arm warm up.

What I have tried and liked for my arm warm up(which should happen after you arm up your body in general) is to do the following general warm up

-Band work
-Arm circles
-Med ball throws
-Long toss

And then I’m good to go.

My logic behind this order is to go from a more static limited movement to a more complex and dynamic movement.
