There are about 5 things you need to do to change your pitching career:
1) Start With The Pain. Even a small amount of regular pain can keep you from ascending to higher levels -- especially if that pain is in the medial elbow, anterior shoulder, or posterior shoulder. Your body's survival instinct will always trump your desire to achieve. So if you want to move up in the game, you must solve even the smallest amount of pain as the first order of business.
2) Get Aligned and Balanced. Physical asymmetries, imbalances, tightness, weakness, or deficits in motor control will impede your performance and could put you at risk for injury. If I gave you the keys to my Meserati (I don't have a Meserati... yet) and it had 3 fully inflated tires, and one flat tire, you'd probably want to get that last tire taken care of before you tried to drive it 185 mph. Identifying and correcting physical constraints will be vital to your progress.
3) You Have To Move Better. Movement patterns that are disconnected add extra stress to soft tissue and make it more difficult to drive the baseball in a straight line toward the plate. This could prevent you from achieving optimal velocity, command, or off-speed stuff and could ultimately derail your career. We have identified 11 common disconnections that might put you at risk for injury or keep you from perfroming well.
4) Build A Bigger, More Powerful Motor. Once you're properly aligned and balanced, and you're moving well, it's time to drop a 6.4 -liter Hemi V8 under the hood. Developing beastmode power requires hard, smart work. It's one thing to be strong, but it's more important that you're able to produce force rapidly. Building mass alone is not the answer. You have to be able to MOVE YOUR BIG MASS!!
5) You Have To Recover Better. If you want to be a prolific guitar player, you have to be able to practice the guitar more than most reasonable people would practice. To become a world class throwing athlete, you have to be able to throw more often and at higher intensities than the average throwing athlete can throw. If you want to ascend to higher levels of competetion, you have to be able to answer the bell and deliver the goods everytime the coach calls your number. That demands a killer recovery plan. There are steps you can take before and after a throwing episode to ensure you bounce back and re-enter the training cycle quickly to have your best stuff every time out.
