Thank you everyone for your feedback I will be posting a video soon
I have been on the Explosive Pitching and Conditiong Program since last July. I was hoping for a major improvement in velocity from when I began until the next time I was clocked. I used to throw 68 mph and when I was clocked today I only threw 72 mph. This is an improvement but I am a very strong 17 year old pitcher where do I go from here ?
I am a 6’0 190 lbs. pitcher. I have heard from many people that you should be around 6’2 and over 200 lbs. to be a successful college pitcher. I do not believe this but am wondering what anyone else seems to think of this. I am currently using explosive and momentum pitching. I am not overweight but am a bigger-boned person. I would like to lose a few pounds to get in better physical shape but am worried if I do that I will lose velocity on my fastball. I understand the principles of momentum pitching and do not think that I will lose velocity if I do this, but I am wondering what others think of it. And for my height I can’t change that. Thank you A concerned client
Thanks Darren I appreciate your advice.
This is what my coach thinks I should do. But this way I am not getting much momentum or power.

I have a question concerning my windup. I understand that the whole point of explosive and momentum pitching is to build up all of your power and then transfer it towards home plate. I recently talked to my coach and he said that I am transferring my weight good but that I need to slow down my initial movements. What can I tell my coach about the speed of my windup. I have posted a video below and would appreciate any comments or suggestions. Thanks so much Nick
I have been using the explosiv pitching program and I begin my motion by striding to the side and then using the explosive pitching fundamentals. I was wondering that if i were to step back as in the momentum pitching that I was be able to gain more momentum or if it would not help in the explosive pitching. Any thoughts or comments would be greatly appreciated.
I have read that in many forums that stretching and flexible tubing are not good before you pitch. I am currently using your conditioning program and I was wondering if I should still do the flexible tubing during my workouts. I also throw off a mound three days a week and on some of those days I pitch as well as do the workout. Which would you reccomend doing first or does it not matter. Thanks, Nick
Along with doing the conditioning program I am also pitching on Monday,Tuesday,Thursday,and Friday. My routine is: (5) 4-seam fastball, (3) low and away, (3) high and away, (3) low and in, (3) high and in, (5) curveballs,(5) changeups, and (5) 2-seam fastballs. Do you believe that this is a good routine to go through or that doing this routine 4 times a week is to much stress? A reply would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for you reply.
I have jut purchased the conditioning program and I read that you should do the workouts 4 times a week. Is it better to do a Monday through Thursday schedule or would it be better to do like a Monday,Wednesday,Friday,Sunday schedule.
