Roald,

There are 4 key things that I do my best years:

#1 Have a really high strength to weight ratio

This is a great point. Those pitchers that I work with in my baseball academy who have a very good strength to body weight ratio are my harder throwers. I think you are correct in pointing this out as a major component to velocity.

So I have a question for you with regard a comment you made on the video comparison of me and Jim.  You said you would not recommend “crouching”back for a pitcher.  Why is that?  Too much torso movement?  Unable to keep eyes on a target?

For pitchers to have a consistent release point they must maintain balance into their front foot strike. Crouching the body and shifting your weight over your drive leg toes for a pitcher would make it difficult to establish a balance point at front foot strike. A consistent release point is critical for locating pitches.

How does this crouching help you generate more velocity with the javelin?
