Fine-tuning your mechanics can be vital to your throwing success during baseball and softball season.
Making sure your throwing mechanics are sound should be a key step in your velocity training. After all, your strength won’t get you far if your throwing form is off.
To help ensure that your throwing mechanics are in tip-top shape, Director of Sports Performance for Allegheny Health Network Frank Velasquez recommends finding a sport-specific instructor. These specialists can help you examine your throwing motion and subsequent movements. This kind of instructor, as opposed to a strength coach or athletic trainer, should be more equipped to help you perfect and fine-tune your throwing technique.
“You want to find an instructor that can help you improve your mechanics in those areas,” Velasquez says. “You can better utilize your strength that you’ve built to help improve your throwing velocity.”
Taking an in-depth look at your throwing mechanics and solidifying your form can help you progress through your baseball and softball training with more advanced workouts.
Build a positive training routine with these tips on constructing your throwing program.
