Velocity programs are becoming more and more necessary since the demand to throw harder is expected by coaches at all levels. When putting MPH of a fastball you have an obligation to make sure the players you’re working with are doing as much of not more to build the muscles that actually decelerate the throwing motion.
You can’t put a Lamborghini engine in a Honda without changing the breaks and expect to stop without something breaking. Build the Hamstrings, Gluts, Lats, and Rear Deltoids “Posterior Chain Muscles” to ensure the player can decelerate their body as their velocity goes up and you’ll have a healthy athlete. Posture and Grip Strength are also things that need to be addressed! The KC GRIPZ Sports Kit has everything you need to develop your body correctly and balance your Kinetic Chain to ensure staying healthy!
