I haven’t pitched on a mound in about two months but the drills that i do are on an indoor mound. I noticed on flat ground when im throwing 150 foot long toss when i try to get my load and extension it’s a lot harder than on a mound. I’ll go through my whole delivery at the end of doing drills on the mound in my house and it feels like i load and then fly down the mound with my extension. It’s obviously because of the slope of the mound. I guess my question would be is it even worth trying to let one go every now and then on flat ground trying to use my legs(load and extension)? Because i feel like its putting more harm on my arm then good.

This is why I developed the Power Throws in the 3X Pre-Season Guide. It is an alternative to Long Toss which forces you to load and stay within your mound mechanics. The drill also is a lot more challenging so your distance is limited do to your ability to build power. I would suggest you checkout the 3X Pre-Season guide for these throws and yes you can do them at max effort.

The Power Throws are only meant for the baseball so you can increase the volume of throws as you get closer towards your season and it also allows you to increase the distance to enhance the intensity of the throws without losing your 3X Pitching Mechanics that you have trained through the 3X Velocity System during the off-season.

If you are indoors I would suggest you continue to use the 3X Velocity System and add in the Lateral Med Throws from the 3X Pre-Season Guide.
