I know this should be in the workout section but I feel as if it’ll get more recognition in this forum section. I only throw about 70 mph as a lefty. I guess my purpose for pitching is to be crafty. But, I do need more velocity. I don’t have $400 to spend on the program that Steve Delabar did. I can still use weighted balls but I’m not sure how to use them effectively . I found a workout with the use of throwing weighted balls from another post on this website. I just want to confirm if this will work.
Warm up with regular 5 oz baseball
3 minutes at 70 feet
3 minutes at 90 feet
3 minutes at 120 feet
1 minute at 70 feet
Then, at 70 feet, I would do:
20 throws with the 6 oz overweight ball
20 throws with the 4 oz underweight ball
20 throws with the regular 5 oz ball
I’d probably do this about 3x a week until spring as well as lifting weights. How much do you think this could increase my velo? Also, I’m only 5"6 135 lb.
