Ages 9 & up. MLB to Youth. For pitchers who are free of injuries, at least 10 months post surgery, & are not currently experiencing fatigue or chronic soreness.

Components: 
This program includes daily (1) warm up routines, (2) velocity/pitching circuits, (3) cardio management, (4) strength & core programming, (5) post cool down circuits, (6) arm care management, & (7) recovery routines. All components are described in detail below under the 'Details & Usage' section.

Research & Development: 
Designed by MLB pitching personnel in conjunction with biomechanists, kinesiology experts, & nationally acclaimed pitching developers. Over a decade of research, analytics, and empirical data supports this program's applications and curriculum.

Required Equipment: 
To be utilized with the Velocity LOAD Harness, VPX Traction Foam Roller, VPX Spin Axis Baseball, VPX Torsion Velocity Band System, & VPX Torsion Hip Loop (pictured below).

Details & Usage


Overview: 
This program develops SUPPORTED velocity that commands towards the win - not just velocity. Throwing hard is one aspect to pitch-ing, but supporting the newfound velocity & commanding it is what wins ballgames. Velocity programs have value, but pitch-ing programs are what create longevity in the game.

Data & Recovery Oversight: 
Over 10 years of analytical pitching data (from the University, lab, & on field levels) support this program's viability. Data is INDEPENDANTLY obtained from VPX Baseball - ensuring the integrity of this program. USAGE OF THIS PROGRAM DURING YOUR SEASON REQUIRES OVERSIGHT IN RECOVERY RATES.

Recovery & Access


You will utilize this throwing program to develop (1) pitching abilities that compete for the win & (2) velocity that enhances your ability to win. Each type of throwing component is denoted within the program's daily throwing regimens. 

RECOVERY MANAGEMENT: 
Ensure your recovery is peaked. If you cannot finish out the day's throwing requirements, cut back and re-evaluate to ensure proper recovery. 'Recovery' is defined as your arm feeling fresh the next day. Some days, you will feel a bit tired or sore. Cut back on that day's throwing to ensure your following day's throwing is not effected. Additionally, to aid in recovery - ice or do therapy only AFTER  you have finished out your running & lifting for that day. Monitoring your recovery rates is how you will discover at what levels your arm can be utilized. 

ACCESS:  
If you are indoors & do not have access to the distance ratings, simulate by throwing higher into a net at a specific target. Do not just throw baseballs into a net, but pick out a specific spot. 

THROWING APPLICATIONS:
Whether indoors or outdoors, do not allow your throws to reach above 15'. If you cannot make the distances (in the air), let the baseball bounce to your target. BE AWARE OF THE PEL LEVELS DENOTED FOR EACH THROWING INTERVAL. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT TO YOUR RECOVERY RATES & ARM STRESS LEVELS. NOT FOLLOWING PEL DIRECTIVES MAY OVER-STRESS YOUR ARM, REGRESS YOUR RECOVERY, CAUSE CHRONIC SORENESS, OR INJURY. Once your lower half increases its linear drive force, GFR, and linear-to-rotational sync, your arm speeds will increase - effectively carrying the baseball further.

DAILY FLEX TRACTION


Every throw day, you will conduct Steps 1 - 3 (below) BEFORE you start the day's throwing regimen. Do not skip, as this is a portion of your daily routine that gets your body & arm kinetically synced with muscular response. 

#1 Active Body Warm Up »

#2 Daily Flex & Mobility Training »

#3 Shoulder/Scap Series »

DAILY TRAINING CURRICULUMS


After you conduct the above Daily Flex & Warm Up Circuit, your body will be prepared to start velocity & pitching training - followed by post cool down, strength, & recovery routines. Start with Weeks 1-2 and then move chronologically to Weeks 3-4 and so on. Each two week phase of training will include daily workloads for pitching/throwing, post cool down routines, strength routines, & recovery plans. Do them exactly as printed with the amounts prescribed. If you cannot conduct the full daily workload due to pain, fatigue, or injury, cut back reps FIRST, then drill amounts SECOND. Always pay close attention to the PEL % ratings of each drill or exercise to ensure proper recovery rates.
