Makes it Possible to Achieve Large Increases in Power & Velocity
[/av_heading]

[av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=” admin_preview_bg=”]
If you want to accelerate through any human movement, be it a swing, a throw or even dive to second base, you need what is known as absolute strength. Once you’ve developed absolute strength, you can then work on what is known as speed strength, and eventually work your way down the strength-speed ladder known as “The Force Velocity Curve” to something called power, or Explosive Strength. Performance & Velocity, then, is a result of a combination of all of these special strengths.

To that end, our athletes begin their journey in our Baseball Program in the Weight room. Methodically attacking muscular weaknesses and eliminating imbalances that are the true cause of injury, and building a base of Foundational Strength, Power, Lifting Technique & Overall Physical Preparedness.

And why shouldn’t we use the Sport Specific Training styles promoted by so many?
[/av_heading]

[av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=” admin_preview_bg=”]
We use a what is known as the Conjugate Method. This means every week we’re Working on Speed Strength, Explosive Strength, Maximal or Absolute Strength, Mechanics, Core Development, Mobility and Specially Design Recovery through Yoga, Body Tempering and Myofascial Therapies. So why do we take this approach?

We must be careful not to overspecialize in Strength & Conditioning for baseball; because using objects that are many times heavier than a ball or bat while trying to mimic the same action of the throw or swing – will quickly affect technique, timing and coordination, and potentially destroy mechanics.

HOWEVER Heavy loads must be moved to activate the Central Nervous System and to illicit new Strength – the key is in breaking down the biomechanics into specialized variations of lifts that build strength & power in the ranges of motion necessary for the athletes specific role in the sport.

No they will not. The shot is used because the object is thrown using similar planes of movement and joint angles to initiate force production from the lower body up the kinetic chain. This allows us to teach athletes to “throw with their lower half” without causing any over use by throwing even more than they already do, and at the same time, develops joint integrity and explosive force production.

This program is designed to take higher level throwers and throwers that have developed solid throwing mechanics and or are producing competent mechanics, and teach them to throw with intent, use their lower half and to transfer lower body and core power up through their backs and out of their arms.

This system is ideally suited for athletes that can continue to throw regular baseballs on a consistent mechanical development regimen, and or take part in a throwing regimen using heavy / light baseballs no more than 30% heavier or lighter than a traditional baseball.

We are strength coaches and biomechanics specialists that are focusing solely on both the production of and the transfer of explosive power in the correct ranges and leverage angles necessary to produce high velocity and accurate throwing.

The shot put by nature is a rotational, linear, and lateral movement and one of the most dynamic acts of force production and power a human can display. It requires balance and the athlete to generate rotational force and transfer the power created up through the kinetic chain, and out of the front of the body in a overhead motion.

Due to the weight of shots the athlete must throw with the lower half as the shoulder cannot produce the power necessary on its own to move the object. This is unlike baseball where a strong athlete can and many times will muscle the ball and whip the object using much more of the upper half compromising the UCL, RC and Labrum.

This is by far one of the most ridiculous misconceptions ever to make it into the baseball world. A misunderstanding of human physiology and human biomechanics is really what this is. Simply put:

What happens if a skeleton is handed a baseball or bat?

NOTHING.

This is because locomotion or movement in any direction is initiated by the human central nervous system, and executed with a powerful combination of muscle, tendon and ligament  action… You see the very act of winding up to throw a ball takes strength and power, that is to create a stored energy and build a stretch reflex that in ables the athlete to uncoil with explosion…

Short tight muscles are bad for any human being, and those are not a result of building strength and power, those are the result of poor training and Coaching malpractice…
