Hey,

I saw this thread and i was wondering about some other things about changing my bio-mechanics.

My question is if it's usefull to go through your delivery really slowly at first. You can't really make a good stride in slowmo but some other like arm-related issues could be worked on.

Then I'm also wondering how usefull it is to make throwing motions without a ball in your hand, or with a ball in your hand without throwing it. I guess it is for the parts I am focusing on (triple extension, hip-shoulder separation) because that part isn't really affected by a ball in your hand. But it would be nice if i could eventually work on my entire motion when it's freezing cold or there is noone to throw with.

 

Thanks in advance,

Peter, I recommend that you purchase the 3X Pitching Velocity program because it gives you drills, exercises and lifts to develop the 3X mechanics. This will save you a ton of time because I have spent the last ten years developing this so you don't have too.

Yea, Peter to put it simply, getting the 3X program will help you gain velocity. For your question though, going through the stride in slow motion helps you gain a visual and feeling of what the components should be like. But, for a pitcher to gain velocity, speed is key. So going through the delivery in slow motion may not be beneficial at all. It may even stuff you up, like starting with the first move (obviously focusing on it after learning 3X and separation), the first move only works when moving fast. Again, for the ball, not holding anything really doesn’t give you the ability to feel the speed of your throw. Having a ball in your hand is definitely better than not having one. If you don’t have anyone to throw to, simply find a target like a wall or sofa. You don’t need to focus on accuracy really until getting all the components right, because when people throw to someone, they try and keep it accurate, by may kill mechanics with it. Obviously in game is different, but just keep that in mind.
