Throwzone’s 16th annual Summer Velocity Enhancement and Arm Health Camp is les than two weeks away! 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. Here’s why:
Myth: I just finished a long fall/winter/spring season, and my coach told me to not play for the next eight weeks in order to rest my arm and let it recover.
Fact: Unfortunately, your coach is sadly mistaken about your arm needing rest. 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!
Solution: Pitching in games can be a stressful activity for those who don’t take care of their throwing arm. At Throwzone’s Summer 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!
So, come join us this summer! Camp starts June 6th, and we’re just waiting to receive your registration form!
