Maintaining an Efficient Delivery during the COVID-19 Outbreak

By Nunzio Signore (BA, CPT, NASM, PES, FMS)

A couple weeks back, we posted a 4-week throwing program for pitchers looking to maintain their arm health and capacity during these difficult times.   The weekly programs include several throwing drills to help address mechanical issues and to develop more efficient movement patterns.

Many of these drills have been made popular through the work of Ron Wolforth, Randy Sullivan, Tom House and Driveline Baseball to name a few.  We’re not re-inventing the wheel here, just giving you our combination of what has worked for our athletes through trial and error over the years.  They are as follows: Continue reading “Maintaining an Efficient Delivery during the COVID-19 Outbreak”

Those of you that have trained with us previously already know the breadth and depth of our training programs.  Given our recent move to Paramus, NJ, for all of our new friends and neighbors in north New Jersey, I would like to personally give you a welcome to one of the most comprehensive facilities for training and developing pitchers and baseball players. 

This off-season is already off to a fast start.  With athletes from middle and high schools all over, and professional ball players from various MLB teams (including the Twins, Padres, Diamondbacks, Orioles, Rockies, Reds and Devil Rays) already having joined us, I would have to say this is going to be our best off-season yet.

By Nunzio Signore (BA, CSCS, CPT, NASM, FMS)

The Pitching Lab is a unique training program specifically designed to produce the “complete pitcher”. It’s truly a merger of strength training (in the weight room) and pitching (inside the nets).  Most players that haven’t trained with us probably don’t appreciate how intertwined our strength training is with our pitching program.

But there are many different threads that need to be weaved into a safe and effective velo program. Today, we’re going to go over what I believe to be some of the key points to look for in an effective velo program and honestly, they should ALL be present. Here we go…
