You may think summer is the time to rest your arm. Your coach may have even told you to take a break.
However, training over the summer is critical to staying in shape and being prepped and ready for fall ball games. Taking a break from working on your development could actually hurt you. Why?
Pitching in games is a stressful activity on the shoulder of a pitcher. By not throwing for so long, you’re allowing your arm to atrophy to the extent that the time it takes to build your arm strength back up again to a neutral state ends up being around 3-4 months. Even then, you’ll never get it back to where your velocity and arm health were previously!
Training is a year-long endeavor. At Throwzone, we believe that players give themselves the best opportunity to improve by training with us three times a week at our July summer training camp. While a 2-week minimum is required, even those few days of training would put your son in the elite company of players looking to improve before returning to school year in the next six weeks.
In fact, at Throwzone’s training camps both past and present, the average velocity gain is 2.2 mph per over a 2-week period. Players who attend all eight weeks gain velocity at a crazy rate. The gains in strength and the ability to recover more quickly by attending our camp helps players improve by leaps and bounds. Plus, our core training has a secondary effect on players who also bat. Players who have trained with us report the ball jumps off the bat much more explosively.
At Throwzone’s Summer Velocity Enhancement and Arm Health Camp, we allow players to increase the workload of their throwing arm through a very systematic and proven training protocol. Our training allows players to build their arm strength up to new levels!
Former MLB pitcher Roger Clemens used to say that the easiest day of his five-day throwing cycle was actually the day he pitched. The reason for this is that he put his arm and body under stressful situations in his training which allowed his arm to function fully and at full health. By working his throwing arm into a heightened condition through a continuous and daily throwing and training regimen, Clemens knew he was going to the “gun battle” with a fully loaded weapon and unlimited rounds of ammunition.
Throwzone pitchers have the best arm health in SoCal because their training is putting them in the best position to succeed. The day they throw in a game is going to be a piece of cake compared to those players who don’t train!
