...plus the program also doubles as an arm strengthener for the off-season!
“This is the first year my son has pitched pain-free in the last 4 years. He is a high school sophomore and prior to this year he was unable to pitch a complete season let alone a complete game. His record this year was 4-1 with 2 complete 7 inning games and an ERA under 2. None of his coaches could offer any explanation or insight into pitching mechanics that would alleviate the elbow pain he was experiencing. I came across the Coach Mills Ultimate Warm-up And Recovery Program Program by chance, read the info and was convinced this would help my son. His windup and mechanics are 100% more sound than a year ago. I would like to personally thank Coach Mills and his son Ryan for their concern and knowledge about pitchers and their campaign to show the right way to pitch.”
Dear Friends and Pitching Insiders,
Do you know that nearly 50% of Little League and high school pitchers are pitching with pain every year? Yes, half. And I'm not talking about a little pain for our youngsters. Some 10 year old Little League pitchers are having Tommy John elbow surgery.
Not to mention during a recent 7 year period, elbow and shoulder injuries have increased nearly 10 times in high school pitchers.
This tells us whatever is being taught to our pitchers IS NOT WORKING! Can you imagine any other profession where it's acceptable to have 50% of the people are playing through pain? As kids?
Something needs to change, because we can't keep doing this to our young pitchers...
How would you like to have a sound pre and post pitching plan developed by a sports kinesiologist that provides immediate and long term benefits for reducing the risk of injury while improving pitching performance?
Let me introduce Angel Borrelli, whom I have known since 2004 and who has been involved in pitching for 16 years, and who has recently designed a brand new pre-pitching and post-pitching routine for pitchers - of all ages.
She's uniquely qualified to create such a program. Angel has not only been involved with world class athletes (she's been a U.S. Olympic Weightlifting Coach), but she's also spent 7 years of graduate and post-graduate study focused soley on one thing - the study of pitching mechanics and pitching injuries.
I do not know anyone more qualified or dedicated to designing a program like this.
Those who know me understand...
This is the only scientifically designed pitching arm care warm-up program available today. Other programs are incomplete because they do not scientifically and systematically warm-up ALL the muscles of the elbow and shoulder in the correct sequence.
During a meeting we had with Angel back in July at our facility, she told my son Ryan and I about her new warm-up routine. She was having all her pitchers using this routine before games and bullpen sessions. Since we're always trying to find new and improved information about pitching to pass along to you, we definitely wanted to see it.
Angel guided my son Ryan through the entire routine. He loved it for two reasons. It really warmed up all the muscles in the elbow and shoulder, and it was quick and easy to do. We then had all of our students using it before and after lessons, and every single student commented on how much better they felt.
The product is called First-Pitch Strike Warm up and Recovery Program, and here's the best part - it only takes about 9 minutes to complete. This is a no-brainer for pitchers at all levels, all the way from Little League to Pro ball.
Remember, the statistics I shared with you? They all point to what you're doing right now is NOT working. Here's an example. I can't tell you the number of clients who come to me and start to do static stretching when I ask to see their warm up routine...
In 2004 I posted a study on my website about why pitchers should not stretch their arms or lower body before pitching. The study proved that static stretching not only increased the risk of joint injury, but it reduced pitching velocity.
This is why I'm a big supporter of Angel's new warm up routine - it's NOT static stretching. This is a well thought out and scientifically designed pitching arm warm-up routine, from a scientist who spent 7 years devoted to studying pitching mechanics.
Even though many pitchers are doing some sort of warm-up using flexible tubing very few are targeting all the important muscles, ligaments and tendons that play a major role during one of the most stressful actions in all of sports - the pitching motion.
Missing an important group of muscles leads to not having the arm warmed-up properly, and could also increase the risk of injury. Since range of motion is also reduced when compared to a properly warmed up arm, you also get reduced pitching performance. Who wants that?
At this point I can hear you saying to yourself, "Yes Coach Mills, but I already use, or have tried using, a warm up time, like those programs which use flexible tubing..." Well, the sad state of affairs is most band and flexible tubing programs being used now... ARE NOT THOROUGH enough!
Let me give you just one example. Did you know...
One popular program has the pitcher attach the flexible tubing at the wrist rather than having him use a hand grip. And instead of doing one arm at a time, it teaches pitchers to use both arms.
So why should this concern you?
Because, NOT using a hand grip reduces the extremely important warm-up of your muscles that extend from your fingers through the wrist and forearm, and connect at the elbow. As a result, NOT using a hand grip prevents the pitcher from doing a complete warm-up of the elbow. Who can risk that?
As we already know from the shocking statistics that 50% of pitchers play with pain, (and 10 year olds getting Tommy John's surgery!), the elbow is a primary location of injuries to pitchers at all levels, and needs to be warmed up properly.
Tubing that does not have a hand grip, not only eliminates important muscles from being warmed-up, but can also increase the load around the shoulder joint. This should be of great concern to you as a pitcher, parent, or coach.
Many pre-pitching routines have the pitcher using both arms. Angel's First-Pitch Strike Warm up and Recovery Program, being based on science, intentionally has the pitcher using only one arm at a time because of the added benefits that come from focusing on the pitching arm alone... Here's one benefit: increased movement capabilities while promoting better posture and alignment.
Let me ask you a question. How many pitchers do you see throw two balls at the same time?! Exactly, none! To thoroughly and properly warm up, you must use your body in the same way you'll be throwing the ball, and that's with one arm. In First-Pitch Strike Warm up and Recovery Program, Angel will walk you through the exact exercises you must be doing to become the most effective pitcher.
But wait, because there's more. In addition to not using a handgrip, and warming up both arms at the same time, there are even more common mistakes being made with pitching warm-up routines...
There are some warm up routines out there that eventually do get you warmed up. The problem is, by the time you start pitching you quickly realize that you've already lost some zip on your fastball, and control of your curve. Why? Because you're arm is already starting to tire!
The last thing you want is to have your pitching arm be fatigued before throwing your first game time pitch! The number of repetitions for each exercise in First-Pitch Strike Warm up and Recovery Program are based on science and research, so unintentional fatigue of the arm does not occur...
As you can see everything was considered during program design, including another aspect of pitching that so many pitchers do improperly, or even leave out entirely... The post-pitching routine. So we've included a bonus program for you...
Here's where it get's really good, because the most innovative part of the program is the post-pitching routine. This is so important because you have an amazing window of opportunity immediately after pitching to restore the arm and help speed up recovery. This post-pitching advice alone will keep your arm feeling fresher than ever before, and here's the best part - it only takes about 2-3 minutes!
Yes, that's right, just a few minutes!
You see, right after pitching the muscles in the front of the shoulder are tight from arm acceleration, and the muscles in the rear of shoulder are over-stretched from deceleration of the arm. First-Pitch Strike Warm up and Recovery Program restores the balance in both areas, so you keep a healthy and strong arm for each and every outing.
In laymen's terms, the First-Pitch Strike Warm up and Recovery Program puts the muscles back into the place they were before pitching! And that is crucial to not only reduce injury, but for a quicker recovery process. Not to mention, the pitcher just feels better after pitching, with this effective program.
Here are just a few more reasons why First-Pitch Strike Warm up and Recovery Program is a must for pitchers at ALL levels:
I know you wouldn't even think about letting your son drive without seats belts or insurance. Or let the little guy ride a bike or skateboard without a helmet. As a parent you're always going to find a way to reduce any harm to your son, and pitching should be no exception!
This program is the only way for you to know that your son is protecting his arm as much as possible. This is THE arm insurance that every pitcher must carry to every game and bullpen - and it's quick, easy, and effective.
I shared with you stats on the frequency with which our kids are getting hurt as a result of pitching not to scare you, but to help you realize a program like First-Pitch Strike Warm up and Recovery Program is NOT optional for pitchers, but essential to improving their performance and reducing the risk of injury.
First-Pitch Strike Warm up and Recovery Program will help your son ensure that his pitching arm is more prepared than ever, so you can both have more confidence when he's pitching, while also knowing that he'll feel better and will have a faster recovery time.
- the absolute best scientifically designed arm insurance policy money can buy -
All of this comes packaged in a three-ring binder that clips shuts for easy storage and carrying, so you can take it with you and be prepared where ever you go!
“My son (D1 scholarship pitcher) used First-Pitch Strike Warm-up and Recovery Program before and after his last start and did not ice. He said his arm felt like he had not thrown. This is hard to believe but he said he had no soreness at all. In the morning - same story. His arm did not feel like he had thrown.”
So ask yourself, what would you be willing to pay for access to information that will help prevent injury, decrease fatigue, and increase recovery speed?
What's your son's arm worth? $1,000? $100,000? $1,000,000?
Before you think to yourself these figures are outrages, stop and ask "What would it be worth to Stephen Strasburg's Dad?" I'm sure he would say at least the entire $15.1 million signing bonus his son got with the Nationals... Trust me, once you learn this stuff you'll never pitch again without it, and that's priceless...
Of course, you won't be paying anywhere close to those numbers for your First-Pitch Strike Warm up and Recovery Program that will be shipped right to your front door. In fact you won't even be paying $500, for the only warm up and post-pitching program created by a sports scientist...
