How The Core Velocity Belt Works To Generate Consistent Velocity The Safest Way Possible

Discover how The Core Velocity Belt self-teaches you to effectively use your lower half to safely generate consistent velocity and throw more strikes.

Inside this video, I'm going to share with you:

How you could easily add 2-3 mph to your fastball without adding one ounce of arm strength... Or, even changing on single thing with your pitching mechanics.
Why arm speed is responsible for velocity, not arm strength.
The 'best kept' secret to pitching mechanics and why so many pitching coaches get it wrong.
Why you have the 'inverted w' and why it has nothing to do with your arm action.

Beware:  Shark! thumbnail

Beware: Shark!

I hear this a lot…

“Lantz, my pitching coach is saying I need to change my arm action because it goes behind my back, (or I have the inverted w)… I’ve know you preach don’t attempt to change arm action after a certain age. I’m stuck. What should I do?”

First things first….”Don’t be the ‘know-it-all’” attempting to show up the coach. Even if you’re convinced the guy has no idea what he’s talking about. Don’t act like you know more.

That’s the quickest way to create a pretty nasty situation as well as getting the reputation no player wants…Human being for that matter.
