3 Ways to Throw harder - Without Throwing Harder
Want to know 3 really quick and easy ways to throw harder... Without even trying to throw harder?
You're reading this, so I guess you do. Let's get started, shall we?
#1: Where's your thumb on the ball? In case you didn't know, the thumb is just there to balance the ball, nothing else. If your thumbprint is on the ball, hurry up and take it off... You're automatically losing 1-2 mph.
#2: Elevate in the strike zone. I gotta say most pitchers struggle to throw the baseball up in the strike zone. In case you didn't know... Any pitch located closer to the eyes or head will be perceived as faster. There's a really easy way to manipulate your wrist to make this happen without even trying.
#3: Ride the Gravity Slide: Yep, it's true. the reason most pitchers have NO chance of ever transferring velocity gains to the mound is because they don't know how to use gravity on their side. Instead they fight it. That's why my pitchers Ride the Gravity slide inside their warm-up and it's been by far and away the most effective way to train pitchers how to utilize their 'other -half' to instantly transfer velocity.
Gotta remember... Arm speed is instant - Arm strength is not!
#4: Bonus: Skip to My Lou: If you're a high school or college player who attends showcases, skip the ball. Yep that's right, skip it across the plate and the radar gun will read 2-3 mph faster. After that, attack the strike zone because the scouts will chart your highest velo regardless of it being in or out of the strike zone.
Go out and execute these 3 tips today and I guarantee you'll start to see hitters swearing up and down that you're actually throwing harder than what you really are.
These are all just grab bag tips and tricks that I've learned from some of the top pitchers and pitching coaches in the country.
