Separation-timing more accurate measurement of pitch velocity, WHAT IS THIS? Just when you thought it couldn't get any better and it does! If you know anything about 3X Pitching, you know the power of hip to shoulder separation. If you do not know anything about 3X Pitching then watch this video on 3X Pitching 101. 3X Pitching is a comprehensive approach to high velocity … [Read more...]
National Pitching Association
The National Pitching Association or better known as the NPA is known for its velocity study from 2005-2006. It credited a revolutionary pitching velocity component called hip to shoulder separation to 80% of a pitchers potential velocity.
The National Pitching Association is run by Tom House who is the developer of the most recent Velocity Plus Program made popular by the HBO Steve Delabar story which highlighted his comeback to baseball. The Velocity Plus Program is a weighted ball program. TopVelocity.net's 3X Pitching Velocity Program is not affiliated with this program and takes a different approach to increasing pitching velocity. Here at TopVelocity we believe weighted ball programs have their place in pitching velocity development but not in a beginner program. The pitcher must have good pitching mechanics void of any red flags pointing out arm injury potential before using a weight ball program. Our 3X Pitching Velocity Program trains the pitcher to develop elite high velocity pitching mechanics while also preventing injury.
In the articles below you will learn more about the National Pitching Association and more about the 3X Pitching Velocity Program. Start now increasing your pitching velocity with a revolutionary pitching velocity program built around hip to shoulder separation.
If you read the countless articles on this site you will learn about a new term that has been brought into the pitching world. This term was first planted into the pitching delivery right here at TopVelocity.net. Maybe you found this website because you wanted to learn the hype behind this term or maybe you have no idea of what you just stumbled on. Either way this article will … [Read more...]
We all should know by now that long distance running is bad for pitchers (read 2009 article called Just Say NO to Long Distance Running) but now everyone needs to know how bad it really is. Yes, the study below proves that long distance running reduces the bodies ability to absorb and use the power of elastic energy. If you have spent anytime on this site, you have learned … [Read more...]
Front foot strike is the single most important moment in the pitching delivery because this is the moment that stride power is converted into hip and shoulder separation and is guided to its pitching location. Therefore perfect placement at front foot strike is necessary to not only support pitch location but to also support high velocity. The problem with over coaching … [Read more...]
The hardest component to conquer in the power pitching delivery is bar far the force vector. Most pitching coaches do not coach this component because they more than likely have no idea what it is. If you want to increase velocity quickly, or you need to increase velocity quickly, then spend your time training this secret component to pitching velocity. It is the foundation of … [Read more...]
