Part 1: The Force Vector
How to Increase Your Pitching Velocity by up to 5MPH in 30 Days
Hello, and thank you for taking the time to sign up for this 4 part 30-day series on adding 5-10 mph to your fastball
In this series, I'll share my personal story of how I overcame arm problems and developed a program that helped improve my pitching speed to 94 miles per hour, post rotator-cuff tear. We will also cover, the three key components of power pitching, which are:
1. The force vector: This is the angle of force that pitchers generate in their delivery. High-velocity pitchers tend to have a linear force vector, meaning their force is directed more towards the target rather than going upwards.
2. Triple extension: This refers to the explosive extension of the hip, knee, and ankle during the pitching motion, which helps generate power.
3. Hip to shoulder separation: This term, also known as "H2S," is a concept that has been studied and proven to enhance pitching velocity.
The concept of 3X Pitching, is based on extensive research, case studies, and collaboration with knowledgeable coaches and trainers. My goal through this series is to help you improve your mechanics and thereby increase your throwing velocity. This video series will provide you with a glimpse of how the 3x program functions and highlight the importance of these key components for high-velocity pitching.
If you have any specific questions or need more information about the program, feel free to ask!
