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).

For most of our guys that have packed on muscle, this means that weight room work from a volume and intensity perspective can and should be scaled down.
