ALL ABOUT INTERNAL ROTATION (and how to Prevent & Heal injuries)

Shares

Internal Rotation (IR) is basically pitch release range of motion (ROM). The more degrees of IR, the more velocity producing potential. IR is elasticity in its highest pitching form, but is a subconscious movement of energy. View this post on Instagram Whatever drill that you do, incorporate the VeloPRO to instantly make the drill more […]

ALL ABOUT INTERNAL PRONATION (and how to Prevent & Heal injuries)

Shares

What is Baseball Internal Pronation?Internal Pronation (IP) is the intenal rotation of the throwing hand after pitch release. It is the culmination of the kinetic chain reaction’s entire energy load being released into the pitch.So many good things going on here! Staying loaded at separation, riding the back hip into footstrike, and the arm isn’t […]

Elbow Extension – What it is, What it Does, and How to Optimize it

Shares

ELBOW EXTENSION is the analytic that quantifies how far out front the elbow is positioned over the shoulder (right before release). The more elbow extension rom – the harder a pitcher throws, the better the pitch plane, and the higher the breaking pitch capabilities. High velocity pitchers experience major Elbow Extension and flexion due to […]

Balanced Force & How to Optimize Equal & Opposite Reactionary Energies

Shares

Newton’s Three Laws of Motion define how energy transfers through an athlete, ball, or bat. Newton’s Third Law states equal and opposite reactions MUST occur for any kinetic chain reaction to be optimized and create BALANCED FORCEAccording to the Law of Energy Dissipation, if an opposite reaction does not exist, energy is lost into the […]

Behind your Mechanical Training and it’s Effect on Kinetic Chain Reaction

Shares

Mechanical training is just one step within a kinetic chain reaction (KCR). They work SPECIFICALLY. However, mechanics contradict human motor pattern sequencing – which works RHYTHMICALLY.If movement (1) flow, (2) rhythm, (3) tempo, and (4) speed are changed at any point during KCR, the result is a redirection of energy. By breaking down the pitching delivery or […]

To Pitch or Hit Harder, Increase Energy and Force

Shares

According to science, hitters and pitchers are objects that possess energy, and use it in the form(s) of potential, kinetic, elastic, and mechanical energy. Basically, you must create energy and transfer it from yourself into the baseball in order to throw or hit harder. BREAKING IT ALL DOWN Every training technique and performance result is effected […]

Front Knee Flex – What it is, and how to maximize it for Energy Transfer

Shares

BERNSTEIN PRINCIPLE – Originated by Soviet neurologist, Nikolai Bernstein, this scientific principle states that the body will organize itself in accordance to the overall goal of balance and movement. In this case, your front knee flex acts as a pivoting point.According to the physics Law of Energy Dissipation, energy cannot be destroyed, but will find the least […]

Are Your Movement Mechanics Limiting Your Future in the Game?

Shares

The game of baseball is the most individualized team sport around. An outfielder oftentimes cannot play shortstop like a shortstop. Pitchers are considered “non-athletes” in the field, and clean up hitters are not lead off hitters – unless you have bad coaching, it’s not all about mechanics.Every defender, hitter in the line up, and pitcher […]

SCIENTIFIC THEOREM TRAINING VS. THEORY BASED TRAINING

Shares

THEORY is an assumption that theorizes with scientific method – repeatedly testing with observation and experimentation. THEOREM training is scientific truth that is proven by a chain of reasoning or accepted truths within a field of study. Most popularized baseball training is derived from theory, including weighted baseball development.VeloPRO is founded upon accepted truths within the […]

All About External Rotation for Efficient & Powerful Kinetic Chain Reaction

Shares

External rotation (ER) is the lateral rotation of the throwing shoulder that is defined in biomechanics and kinesiology as a transverse movement plane. It is initiated right after foot strike in power arms. External Rotating of hips transfer the linear lower half energy into the arm, with External Rotation of shoulder transferring energy down the […]
