PROGRAM

Pitching Performance program

VPX is the official training institution of Velopro Baseball. Used by 20 MLB orgs, 70+ NCAA teams, & over 10,000 athletes worldwide.

Program Details & Applications


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

Research & Development: 
Designed by MLB pitchers & 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.

Usage Requirements: 
To be utilized with the Velocity LOAD Harness. Can be combined with other training systems or aids, but the VL Harness is required to maximize gains and movement performance. Usage without the VL Harness would not support work loads, training goals, & oversight requirements set forth by this program.

What You Need: 
To gain the biggest benefits from this program, we recommend the following equipment be utilized:

  • VPX Torsion Velocity Band System - torsion arm care, scap loading, torsion shoulder stability, core power, and torsion cuff strength applications.

  • VPX Foam Roller - specialized grid pattern concentrates muscular response and mobility rates.

  • VPX Spin Axis Baseball - Optimizes fastball spin rates, velocity, and keeps you behind the pitch by training proper arm action and trunk rotation.

  • VPX Flexor Band - Develops fast twitch muscular response and activates core power within lower half and hips.

This program develops healthy velocity that is both supported and competes for the win - rather than just a velocity or throwing program. Over 10 years of analytical pitching data (from the University, lab, and on field levels) support this program and its usage. Data is INDEPENDANTLY obtained by VPX Baseball, which is extremely important to the accountability and integrity of this program. USAGE OF THIS PROGRAM DURING YOUR SEASON REQUIRES OVERSIGHT IN RECOVERY RATES.

Overview & Recovery:


Abide by all distances, intensities, amounts, and application types. This program requires usage with the VL Harness to ensure proper motor patterning & sequence optimization of sensory feedback. Conducting this program without the VL Harness is not recommended. 

Velopro Baseball highly encourages you to utilize our VPX Torsion Velocity Band System, Foam Roller, Spin Axis Ball, and Flexor Band to maximize this program's gains. All training systems are available on our website or with an upgraded membership to VPX's Advanced Velocity Enhancement Program.

If you experience extended soreness, cut back on distances or intensity FIRST, throwing amounts SECOND. If soreness persists, take days off. If you experience any type of sharp pain or become injured, stop immediately and seek medical advice.

VPX, Velopro Sports, and Velopro Baseball are not responsible for any injuries, physical complications, or performance drops you may experience while performing this program. See disclaimer for details.

If you are actively in your season and cannot perform the day's workload (in this program), remove one of the bullpen days FIRST. 

If recovery rates are not optimized (after removal of one bullpen day), then reduce distance and intensity amounts SECOND.

If recovery rates are still not optimized, reduce throwing amounts THIRD.  

To increase overall recovery rates, increase distance cardio training, conduct compression therapy, and implement a proper arm care plan with band work. 

If you want to maximize your work load & recovery rates, upgrade this program to the VPX Force LOAD Hitting Program that includes a pro grade arm, cuff, & scapula load management plan. This upgrade will also give you access to a pro grade recovery management plan.

Daily Routines:


Each week of this program includes the daily routines (listed below). Refer to 'Program Videos' (above) for all drill work, how to's, and in depth tutorials.

Follow all daily routines exactly in their printed form to optimize this program's performance - unless you are experiencing recovery or health issues.

This program includes different training components PER DAY. If you want a fully comprehensive approach to pitching & velocity performance and access to the pro grade training circuits (listed below), upgrade this program to the VPX Advanced Velocity Enhancement Program.

FOR DRILLS TRAINING: 
Each drill directive (in your daily routines) has a specific number that corresponds with the number of a drill in the videos shown under the 'Program Drills' tab (above). For example, if Drill #1 is listed in your day's plan, you are to do Drill #1 that is listed in the 'Program Drills' tab (above).

Additionally, there are different drill types that correspond to the different training components. For example, if your daily routine for the Pattern Sequencing Training Component lists Drill #1, you would refer to Drill #1 under 'Pattern Sequencing' in the Program Drills tab above. You would NOT do Drill #1 that is listed under 'Delivery Enhancement' drills. Ensure you are doing the correct DRILL TYPE & DRILL NUMBER that corresponds with your daily training routine directives.

PRE-THROWING & WARM UP CIRCUIT

PRE-THROWING & WARM UP CIRCUIT


Before every throw day, you will conduct Steps 1 - 3 (below) BEFORE you start the day's throwing regimen. Upgrade to the VPX Advanced Velocity Enhancement Program to gain access to elite programming for the below warm up recommendations.

#1 -  Active body warm up:
Conduct an active body warm up. 5min of agility and flex warm up, 5min of static stretching of both upper and lower half, and 5min of band work for your shoulder and scapula load patterning.

Agility and flex warm up exercises can include high knees, bounders, jogging, side shuffling, etc.

Band work needs to include rotator cuff protraction, retraction, and scapula load drills. Ensure you activate internal and external ROMs for all cuff muscles - IN ALL BODY POSITIONS.

Use VPX Torsion Velocity Band System for all arm/shoulder motor patterning, and the VPX Foam Roller and VPX Flexor Band during any agility/flex warm up.

#2 - Interval KCR warm up:
It is important to get your entire body working as one unit to sync your kinetic chain reaction (KCR) - once it is stretched and you have blood flow.

To do this, do about 5-10 sprints at 90' length. Conduct them wherein you sprint the 90' and then walk back to your start position. Repeat. 

#3 - Active arm warm up
Throw at around 60 - 80 feet at 50% PEL to warm your arm up BEFORE you start with any daily throwing routines that will include Delivery, Velocity, and/or the pitching training component of that day.

Throw with the VPX Spin Axis ball to develop proper arm stroke motor patterning and response rates.

BEFORE YOU START THIS PROGRAM

BEFORE YOU START THIS PROGRAM


You will utilize this throwing program to develop (1) pitching abilities that compete for the win and (2) velocity that enhances your ability to win. Each type of throwing component is denoted within the program's daily throwing regimens. Doing this program without the VL Harness is not recommended.

ACCESS:  
If you are indoors and 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 AND 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 and to the target at greater distances. This is the essence of healthy velocity that wins. The VL Harness is the #1 tool to gain this type of velocity.
