IT TAKES MORE THAN A STRONG ARM TO BE A GREAT BASEBALL PITCHER – TRAIN WITH MYOSOURCE KINETIC BANDS

March 31, 2014 Leave a comment

By: Matt McQueen

Every father believes if his son has a strong arm that he can be the next Cy Young Award winner. This is not even feasible and athletes often find out the hard way. Even a left-handed pitcher that can throw a 90 mph fast ball will only get so far without great work ethic and the right training tools.

Most of the power in pitching comes from the legs, which provides the power to push off the mound to force the delivery of the baseball to the plate. Continuing to develop strong legs is a necessity. Many baseball players have naturally strong legs, but they will not make it through the wear and tear of the game without great leg strengthening workouts.

Pitchers like Greg Holland, closer for the Kansas City Royals, who are not tall are great because they are built like fire hydrants and make up for the lack of length they lack with brute force in their legs used to whip and push their body forward. Not every pitcher is built like a fire hydrant.

Length for a pitcher means when he is finished with his motion he is closer to the plate which makes the ball get their quick and seem faster than it really is along with downward movement which makes it harder to get underneath the ball for power hitters who have uppercut swings.

The key to stronger legs and greater flexibility is easily provided with the leg straps of a pair of lower body Myosource Kinetic Bands. Think about being able to become drastically stronger while simply practicing. Myosource Kinetic Bands allow baseball pitchers to use their own body weight to put tension on each movement like lifting weights simply by performing a baseball drill. Myosource Kinetic Bands strap on your legs right above the knee with 2 resistance bands. The long band goes in the front and the short band in the back so they do not limit or restrict movement. Myosource Kinetic Bands do not need to be taken off at any time during a workout. Myosource Kinetic Bands also help pitchers work on balance, stability, endurance, muscle memory, and flexibility. This is a tool that every baseball player needs.
