ARM VELOCITY PROGRAM

The AVP regimen combines total body power production with weighted ball and pitching related plyometrics to create the first-ever multifaceted pitching strength program.

Slammers Arm Velocity Program (AVP)

This program will start in November and continue through February.

The Arm Velocity program is broken into THREE STAGES:

Stage 1: Is dedicated to strength. Building functional strength to increase power and control of body. Runs from November through December.

Stage 2: Incorporates a graduated throwing program which includes using weighted balls from 2oz to 8oz for overloading and under-loading drills, mechanical work, and continued strength training. Also, included in this phase is the use of technology like Rapsodo. Runs from December thru Mid February.

Stage 3: Is an in-season strength, arm care, and arm maintenance program which is crucial to sustaining the gains seen in Stage 1 and 2 while understanding the rigors of in-season games and throwing. Runs from the end of February thru mid-May. 

Additional in-season program will continue and consist of: strength, arm care, and arm maintenance program but will be built specifically for each Slammers player summer game schedule. We build strength and velocity during the grueling summer and travel season. Includes a travel schedule regiment for out of state tournaments that can be followed easily. Runs from mid-May thru July. 

The program will have a foundation of corrective exercise with the end goal of increasing throwing velocity. 

The overall program will transition into our upper and lower body program demanding high-force and high-power production with a bridge into proper weighted ball training emphasizing throwing mechanics. 

The AVP regimen combines total body power production with weighted ball and pitching related plyometrics to create the first every multifaceted pitching strength program. 

Measured Performance: Arm and ball velocity are regularly measured and documented to provide objective feedback and ensure program success. We use Rapsodo technology to analyze, correct and perfect.
