Here's a way to improve in the off-season.
on January 18, 2007
Two words: BROADER SHOULDERS. For those who want to pitch at a professional level or just want to get into better shape for the next season, this guide provides hundreds of photos and descriptions of exercises and stretches to help get you there. After two months of TUFFCUFF workouts three days a week, my 11th grade nephew has added 5 pounds of muscle and is throwing the ball harder and farther. We live in a cold weather area, so he has to skip some of the recommended exercises, such as two-handed throwing of a medicine ball inside a gym. But most exercises can be done with a treadmill, dumbells, and a small indoor workout space.
The guide is probably even more helpful for college level players who have more time to focus on workouts and have access to better equipment and facilities. It also contains a variety of graphs and guidelines for players to chart their progress as well as a recommended diet. This guide proves getting to the next level requires work, not steroids.
