Program Overviews:

How AVP works: Arm speed is developed in sequence with the transfer of energy through the kinetic chain. To control this transfer of energy, dynamic balance must be emphasized. Strength training will be an integral part of this program to develop speed and power. All of the throwing workouts in this program are closely monitored for mechanics and strength, with an emphasis on the four basics of pitching: balance, direction, angle and length. The Arm Velocity program is broken into three phases: Phase 1 is pre-throwing strength development, Phase 2 is power training and throwing, and Phase 3 is speed training and throwing. Pitchers will throw twice a week during the pitching phase of the program and strength train at least three times per week for the entire program. 

Measured Performance: Arm and ball velocity are regularly measured and documented to provide objective feedback and ensure program success.

How the Bat Speed Program works: Bat speed comes from using the kinetic chain. One joint in motion effects the others. Joint placement dictates muscles function. You need to be strong to be powerful. There are different phases that will be touched in this program. Absolute Strength, Strength Speed, Speed Strength and Absolute Speed. This program will include over load and under load training to increase bat speed.

 Measured Performance: Bat Speed and ball exit velocity will be regularly measured and documented to provide objective feedback. Video will also be used to ensure program success.
