Walter Feeney’s Separation Throws, Stride Throws & Olympic Lifts
I will just be posting my separation, stride & Olympic Lifts here. I’d love some feedback so I can improve and make sure I’m doing everything right. I will be constantly posting videos here everyday if not, at least once a week via youtube links.

I was browsing the perfect game and I found this one kid who weighs less then me but is topping out at 86 mph. He’s the same height as me within an inch as well. He’s faster than me though, he ran his 60 in 7.4 seconds. Also as I was looking at other kids I also noticed as their 60’s were shorter the faster they threw. It’s stuff that I see like this that makes me feel great.

My arm was still a little sore from pitchers and catchers. My target throws only topped out today as high as 72mph which is a little better and I’m happy with that for now. But I set a new pr on my later separation med throws at 38 mph today which was pretty cool. It’s awesome that you can always do those no matter how tired you are.

Yesterday I probably shouldn’t have been doing it but I power cleaned 205 and when I tried to clean it again I sprained my wrist trying to power clean it and put it back on the bar. I should’ve thrown the weight away before it collapsed my arm onto my knee. So I won’t be able to do my med throws till friday. Fortunately it was my right arm and not my left.

Your wrist will recover by next week. You are in-season so you shouldn’t be going over 75% of your 1RM. If you are still doing the off-season training in-season you will set yourself up for more sprains and pulls. Just be aware of this.

Your still not accelerating at the top of your clean. Your arms are pulling hard. This is why you sprained your wrist. When you try to pull your arms instead of jump the bar height is low causing a wrist jam. Work lighters until you get this technique down.

Thank you Brent so much for the feedback! I remember Kevin said my arms are just cables that are attached to the weight. The only part of my upper body that I should be using is the shrug after I 3x right? I’m glad you told me this because for a while I thought I had the technique down alright. I think it is better than what it was at the camp though. I’ll be sure to stay within my limits during the season. Thanks again man!

Your arms should not bend on this lift. This definitely shows you that this is a problem in your form and is most likely a form issue in the power clean as well.

Thanks for the feedback Kevin! I was looking at these two videos last night and I noticed a difference in the stabilization in my leg at front foot strike. The video that I took at the game yesterday you could tell that my front leg was collapsing at front foot strike and I was doing a lot of other things wrong but it was something that I noticed I was doing worse opposed to the day before when I was throwing a bullpen at the local place in town before practice. It doesn’t look like I’m holding much torsion in my drive leg and it’s bending in early as well as I’m cocking my arm early before I get to front foot strike as well too. Which I think is causing little to no separation at all when my hips open. Again it looks like my ankle is rolling and I’m not getting much drive either. I think my hips start to open up to early as well. I’m getting some good external rotation though it seems and my forward trunk tilt seemed alright.
