The rest of the chapters were just an "introduction to weight lifting and stretching". Chapter after chapter of what weights to lift, and how to lift them. Don't get me wrong, it isn't bad weight training information... but there are far better weight training books out there and the excercises are not really unique to baseball or pitching. Generic normal excercises, like the ones you'd find in any weight training book (there are only so many ways you can lift a dumbell).
I was looking to the book for some deeper insight into mechanics, and maybe some more illustration of ryans form. I wanted to dissect his delivery, and see how his pitching style differed from my own. The book did not deliver.
To those other reviews that claim conditioning is the reason ryan was so successful... I'd say you are partially right. Conditioning is important. Its also very basic. I don't need a book telling me how to do squats or shoulder presses. The act of throwing the baseball, on the other hand, is extremely complicated. This is where you need the most information...
This is not an "ultimate guide" to anything.Read more ›
I think there are ways that velocity can be increased with some of the subtle twists n this book. It may take changing mind sets and old habits but will be effective.

This is now a classic but in my teenage years this was some cutting edge stuff. Tom House was one of the first trainers to recommending resistance training for pitchers. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Ryan McMillan
