Intro Velocity Program (13+ Years Old)

Increase Arm Speed and Durability!

$119 $109

What's Included:

This is what started it all! The current overload/underload phenomenon to increase velocity started with this program originally developed at the NPA (National Pitching Association). As Directors there, we worked on the research and development of this program to create THE SAFEST velocity improvement program in the nation.

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.

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 trying 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 as safely as currently possible. Get started today!

Here’s what you’re getting:

  • 1 Complete Set of Weighted Balls designed especially for Pitchers
  • Day by Day, Throw by Throw Protocol Instructions
  • Complete, Detailed Video Demonstrations of Every Throw and Exercise
  • Physical Workout Manual to keep at home or in your locker
  • Digital Workout Manual to take with you on any mobile device so you can train anywhere.

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 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.

Youth Starter Program (9-12 years old)

Get Started Right and Avoid Arm Injuries

$199 $129

What's Included:

Our Youth Starter program is an arm and shoulder durability routine to keep kids healthy while they mature through little league and travel ball. We use weighted balls in a very safe and tested manner that helps prevent kids from getting sore arms or worse. Unlike the standard weighted ball programs where kids are throwing weighted balls inappropriately, our program takes into consideration the developmental stage that youths are in and focuses on arm durability that will manifest itself into a stronger arm and more velocity as they mature physically.

Along with a set of weighted balls, we include a set of elastic cords with a throwing-specific cord workout. It targets and strengthens not just the shoulder, but the wrist, forearm and elbow.

Today’s youth have a high propensity to get “little leaguer’s elbow” (medial epicondylitis) and other elastic bands strap on at the wrist and thus only target the upper arm and shoulder. With our ergonomically designed grip, our cords engage the wrist, forearm and elbow, along with the rest of the arm.

Our Youth Starter Program also includes an essential Pre-game/Pre-practice on-field warm-up that will get the players prepared to throw, play and stay healthy when it’s time to pick-up a ball and get started.

No youth arm durability and strength program has been utilized on more athletes than ours. Best of all it’s safe, and with over two decades of successful use, it works!

Here’s what you’re getting:

  • 1 Complete Set of Weighted Balls designed especially for Youth Pitchers
  • Day by Day, Throw by Throw Protocol Instructions
  • Complete, Detailed Video Demonstrations of Every Throw and Exercise
  • 1 Complete Set of Youth Elastic Cords designed for Youth Pitchers
  • Detailed Instructions for Elastic Cord Workouts
  • Complete Video Demonstration of Every Cords Exercise!
  • Youth Specific On-Field Warm Up & Workouts with Video Demos!
  • Physical Workout Manual to keep at home or in your locker

Velocity and Shoulder Care Program

Arm Speed and Rotator Cuff Strength

$299.00

What's Included:

Our 2nd level program adds a shoulder strength component to support the added velocity gains when using our INTRO VELOCITY PROGRAM. In addition to the weighted balls, we include a set of our elastic cords with a pitcher-specific cord workout to maximize the effectiveness of elastic cords use. We also include a light dumbbell workout program that specifically strengthens the rotator cuff and decelerator muscles to make them more durable and withstand the demands of pitching. These two added protocols have been tested and refined over 15 years with thousands of pitchers and is the safest arm and shoulder care program available anywhere.

When working the arms and shoulders, it is IMPERATIVE that you strengthen the small muscles inside the shoulder. These include the supraspinatus, infraspinatus, teres major, teres minor, and the subscapularis. It is these muscles that stabilize the shoulder capsule, decelerate the arm and take the brunt of throwing stress. If left unstrengthen, the result can often be a rotator cuff tear. Keep these muscles strong by utilizing this program!

WHAT’S INCLUDED:

• 1 set of weighted balls + velocity throwing protocol + video instructions

• 1 set of Elastic cords + elastic cords protocol + video demonstration

• Dumbbell workout program + video demonstration

• Workout Instruction Manual (hard copy and digital download)

Velocity Bats

The Magic Formula for Velocity and Exit Speed 🔥

$149 $129

What's Included:

Pitching Velocity and Hitting Power comes down to two things… Speed + Strength 💪

Meet Your NEW Favorite Training Tool…

THE VELOCITY BAT!

Here’s why Velocity Bats are the easiest Magic Formula Training Tool Ever Invented…

Velocity Bats balance accelerator “speed up” and decelerator “slow down” muscles, so you increase speed and reduce the risk of injury at the same time.

The Velocity Bats Build Strength! 💪

Most players make the mistake of only training muscles that accelerate the body. Yet little or no time is spent addressing the decelerator muscles, the muscles that slow down the body. This leaves a void. No matter how strong the “speed up” muscles are, if they’re not balanced with “slow down” muscles, increased speed is impossible without risk of injury. The brain’s own self-protecting mechanism will stop any action that could lead to injury. As a result, body and swing speed is inhibited.

However, if the body can improve it’s BALANCED strength, the brain will kick in and allow for faster motion without fear of injury. You’ll swing the Velocity Bats so that they activate and strengthen both “speed up” AND “slow down” muscles used in the swing. After rigorous testing of various weights, we calibrated the heavy Velocity Bat to maximize strength without compromising speed.

The Velocity Bats Build Speed! 💥

The second piece of the “Magic Formula” is training the nerves to fire the muscles faster than they’ve been conditioned to move. The more reps you do at a certain speed, the more the brain conditions itself to maintain that speed. In order to override that conditioning, athletes must force themselves to move faster than they’ve been trained to move.

To do this, athletes swing the light Velocity Bat as fast as they can in various cross-specific ways. This allows the brain to accommodate moving at speeds not possible with a standard bat. Over time, the brain allows an increased limits for speed, firing the nerves faster and moving the bat quicker. This, along with increased balanced strength, translates into faster, sustainable swing speeds without additional “effort”.

If you have 10 minutes a day and can swing a bat… The Velocity Bats Will Increase Your Pitching Velocity and Hitting Exit Speed!

Just pick it up and swing it, following the “done for you” training program. Just like an iPhone, they look real simple, but as you’ve just heard there’s complex science and research behind them. You’re getting a complete proven and tested program to use. Just 10 minutes per day, 3 times per week to start to see the dramatic results that Velocity Bats can bring you.

Velocity Balls

A Fresh New Set of 6 New Weighted balls

$75.00

Need a new set of weighted balls? You’re at the right place!  All 6 delivered to you, shiny and new!  The set includes the 2lb, 1lb, 6oz, 5oz, 4oz, 2oz balls and carrying bag.

Ergo Grip Cords | Adult & Youth

Anatomically correct elastic cords with workout specifically designed for throwers

$34.99

What's Included:

WHAT YOU GET:

  • 1 set of elastic cords + video instructions link
  • A set of cords for arm durability workouts that includes our Ergo Grips, mounting clip and workout protocol with video demonstration.

BLACK (HS/adult): These cords are for high school athletes and above with appropriate resistance. Everyone is familiar with resistance bands. What sets the Ergo Grip Cords apart and makes them more complete are the ergonomically designed grips which add wrist, forearm and elbow resistance as part of the workout. Other resistance bands are strapped at the wrist and only work the upper arm and shoulder, thus ignoring the importance of activating the wrist, forearm and elbow. The Ergo Grip Cords allow for a more anatomically correct and complete arm workout. These will help strengthen the secondary muscles and synergists and provide increased joint integrity to the whole arm.

BLUE (youth): These are the same Cords as the black adult version, but with a resistance that is appropriate for kids up through junior high school. When properly and regularly used, these cords will help strengthen a kid’s arm and provide crucial joint integrity, mobility and durability.
