Refined over the last 20 years on our pitchers, there is no better program available. And best of all, it is PERSONALLY ADAPTED TO YOU. Based on your current velocity and pitch totals, it calculates the workout and reps you need to get in.
This is the most comprehensive velocity, shoulder care and joint integrity program that you can get without working with us at our facility. This is NOT A COOKIE CUTTER PROGRAM. This workout adapts to you as you increase your velocity and/or innings totals.
No other online velocity and arm-care program is as individually designed as ours! This is the SAFEST VELOCITY IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM in the country and it’s simple to implement.
• 1 set of weighted balls + throwing protocol instructions + video instructions
• 1 set of Elastic cords + elastic cords workout instructions + video demonstration
• Workout Manual (hard copy and digital download) which also includes:
– Light Dumbbell Workout instructions + video demonstration
– Plyoball Workout instructions + video demonstration
– Stability Ball Arm & Shoulder workout instructions + video demonstration
– Easy to follow instructions on which workouts to do and how often to do them based on your current velocity and pitch totals
It has been known for decades that overload/underload training increases throwing velocity. In fact, Dr. Tom House, the founder of the NPA did his first weighted ball study with Dr. Coop DeRenne back in 1985 which confirmed the validity of weighted ball training. There was one major problem: over time athletes were getting “sore arms”, or worse, major injuries with the added velocity. Therefore, the program was shelved believing that promoting such a program was disingenuous to an athlete until it could be implemented more safely. (Even today, most other velocity programs are still hurting athletes!)
Fast forward 20 years and the NPA finally developed a protocol that mitigated these arm injury issues. We knew that GIRD (glenohumural internal rotation deficit) was a major predictor of potential arm injuries and so we went about trying to fix GIRD using a weighted ball program. After testing numerous iterations, not only did the protocol fix GIRD, it also led to safest arm speed increases we’d ever seen! In 2008 it was submitted to ASMI (American Sports Medicine Institute) for a peer review.
This is what the Velocity Program is about: ARM SPEED ACHIEVED SAFELY. Get started today!
BEWARE: There are lots of other very popular weighted ball programs on the market that are creating sore arms and getting guys hurt. They are simply chasing arm speed and adding harmful “recovery” exercises without fully understanding the cause and effects. Don’t jump on the bandwagon because “everyone else is doing it”. We are constantly having to repair arms that were on these other programs, many after having Tommy John surgery. Don’t waste a season (or worse!) by making the same mistake.
