Pitcher’s Friend Resistance Tubing should be an integral part of any arm health program to prepare the arm for throwing and is equally important for non-throwing overhead athletes as well. The overhead tasks associated with throwing, swimming, tennis, volleyball, and golf all rely on similar muscle-activation patterns of the rotator cuff, humeral movers, and scapular stabilizers.
Particularly popular in baseball, pre-throwing exercises and strength training with resistance tubing have been accepted at all levels. Properly performed exercises can activate, strengthen and condition muscles important in the throwing motion while having low impact on the joints. The Pitcher’s Friend resistance tubing is highly portable, allowing these exercises to be performed in the bullpen, dugout, locker room, or on the sidelines.
The Pitcher’s Friend tubing utilizes elastic force to provide resistance throughout functional movement patterns allowing the ability to move freely during exercise. This tool permits the recreation of athletic movements and is not affected by gravity when compared to lifting weights, where gravity factors into the effectiveness of a movement direction.
The Pitcher's Friend consists of padded wrist bands (cuffs) made with easily cleaned synthetic leather attached to five foot sections of resistance tubing. Looped ends provide for attachment to wrist band and anchor (sold as pairs).
The use of a connecting device, such as a snap hook (included), can extend the useful life of resistance tubing by protecting the tubing from nicks, cuts, abrasions, and/or scratches from its anchor. Instruction for use not included
