I have heard about this somax analysis which they use for golfers and they have analyzed pitchers like Tim lincecum. I’m not sure but I think this is somewhat like the force production of 3X. Is there a difference?

I like the concept because it is along the lines of the 3X approach but the product they are selling at the end shows you that it is not force production but another rotational approach to pitching which will have little effect on velocity.

So in a sense if you lift weights to power the lower body instead of the arm so you get more velocity because you are increasing hip speed which increases the force multiplier which is mentioned in the analysis? It mentions in the analysis that Tim never lifted weights. So how did he get alot of velocity(not mechanically)? Is he genetically gifted or is he like the old pitchers who did something else similar to weightlifting?

Dick Mill's also likes to say that Tim doesn't lift weight but all you have to do is a Google search and you learn otherwise.

ESPN
“The mechanics Tim employs now are the same he used then … Chris (Lincecum) designed a weight-training program for Tim”

When Tim entered Liberty High School in Renton, he stood just 4-11 and weighed all of 85 pounds. Incredibly flexible, the teeanger was much stronger than he appeared, thanks mostly to a weight training program devised by Chris. Tim could do a back flip from a standing start and walk across the room on his hands.
