“The Most Effective Baseball Training Program to Increase Throwing Velocity for Position Players, Pop Time for Catchers and 60 Yard Sprint Times. Is Now the #1 Player Profile Enhancer in America”
“This Will Develop Any Ball Player into a Top Prospect if They Are Willing to Fully Commit!” By Coach Brent, Creator of THE 2X VELOCITY PROGRAM
When I created THE 2X VELOCITY PROGRAM, I knew it would produce million dollar results in 16 weeks, but I wasn’t sure if anyone was brave enough to try it. Turns out…there are a lot of hard working baseball players out there who want to be the best. Hard working enough to actually enjoy building themselves into the Bigger, Stronger and Faster ball player without the use of steroids. To like the feeling of training like an Olympian…of converting this Olympic Power into ball speed and sprint speed with 100′s of reps in drills that would make any man want to give up. Is THE 2X VELOCITY PROGRAM CHALLENGING? Oh, yeah. It really IS the most challenging and effective throwing velocity and sprint speed training program ever put online. It’s totally badass…and it’s going to get you million dollar results. I GUARANTEE IT!
These top 10 reason you throw 80-85mph is going to really upset you. You found this page because you have a major problem in this game; you are average and you know average will get you no where. How many guys in college baseball do you think can throw the ball 80-85mph? I would bet at least 90% of them. How many coaches in college baseball are looking for pitchers who throw 80-85mph? None of them, they just get stuck with them because there isn’t that many 90mph arms to pick from. How long do you think you will play this game at 80-85mph? Not long at all, unless you get lucky!
I am not trying to be a total ass here. I just want you to understand that 80-85mph is not a good place to be if you are in college. Even if you are in high school it is not the best place in todays game because 90 mph is becoming more common. Believe me, I totally understand where you are in your career, I was 80-85mph for 5-6 years of my career and I hated ever minute of it. It almost made me quit the game that I love. The only reason I broke out of it was because I finally couldn’t accept it anymore and made the commitment to break out. Yes, you will have to do the same. Don’t worry I am here to help!:)
In this article, I will go over the top ten reasons you throw 80-85mph. I will also give you the secrets to what is limiting you from breaking 90 mph and I will then introduce you to the most effective program in the game to helping you implement these secrets. So, wipe off that depressed look and let’s get serious about your career and break out of that 80-85mph range TODAY!:)
The difference between Linear Separation VS Rotational Separation lies at the foundation of 3X Pitching. Learning this difference will give you a complete understanding of what makes the high velocity pitcher. You will now understand what it means to use 3X Pitching. You will also understand why any other approach is either uncompleted or not as effective as 3X Pitching.
Hip to shoulder separation has been a popular understanding in the world of pitching instruction. The problem is most people have a poor understanding of it. Mainly because they really have no understanding of what it actually does for the pitcher. They can see the difference of hip to shoulder separation in a video analysis when compared to someone who has it but when it comes to actually trying to implement the mechanical component, they have no concept of how to use it.
In this article, I will define hip to shoulder separation to the T and also teach you how it is the intersection of power transfer and a force multiplier for the high velocity pitcher and not the generator of pitching velocity. We will also look at examples of Linear Separation VS Rotational Separation. I will then finish this article teaching you how it must be implementing into the pitching delivery.
These top ten ways to piss off your pitching coach can also be interrupted as ways to NOT piss of your pitching coach. I am definitely not telling you to piss off your pitching coach. I am just giving you a list of conflicts that all pitchers run into with their pitching coaches and some advice to avoid them.
Let’s face it, most pitching coaches have an average to below average education on the science of the high velocity pitcher. This is why the best pitching coaches I had in my career just told me to keep doing what I was doing because they knew I had done my homework when it came to learning effective pitching mechanics but before I gained this respect from my coaches I did have to hide most of my training from them.
In this article, I will first go over the pitcher pitching coach relationship and all of its dysfunction and then I will list the top 10 ways to put your pitching coach into an early retirement!;) Some of these ways listed I actually did in my career and got more than a mouth full from a few coaches. My hope is that you can learn from my experience and gain respect from your coaches, while continuing to follow the best program, even if it isn’t theirs.
Some of the most common questions that I get as a Pitching Coach and a USA Weightlifting Certified Sports Performance Coach is how did guys like Steven Strasburg and Jason Motte tear their UCL’s? My answer is always that they didn’t come down to a 3X Velocity Camp!:)
I am joking but at the same time I am very serious. On the joking side, I like to think I am not that much of a ego which this game is full of. On the serious side, I truly believe in the power of 3X Pitching. Of course, I then follow up my short arrogant answer with 3X science because at the same time I am a total nerd when it comes to the science of high velocity pitching.
In this article, we will learn from the studies that prove more elbow damage is done when you start trunk rotation too early in your delivery. It actually has no correlation to pitching velocity but a significant link to arm health. I will also take a close look at Jason Motte’s pitching mechanics and how this led to his UCL tear and also Stephen Strasburg’s pitching mechanics and how it lead to his UCL tear. We will also look at what prevents this early rotation and the most effective way to correct this major mechanical flaw in the high velocity delivery.
This is what 3X Pitching is all about. Helping pitchers like Chris Fischer overcome adversity and reach their pitching velocity goals.
Listen to this awesome interview with Chris Fischer who was cut last season in college baseball because he was only throwing 82 mph. He found himself another school to play for and more important, he found the 3X Pitching Velocity Program.
In this interview with Chris Fischer and 3X Coach Kevin Schultz, who coached him through the program, you will learn how Chris went from sitting 87-88mph to sitting 93-94mph in one season after using the 3X Pitching Velocity Program. He will talk about the key elements from the 3X Program that really changed his game. He credits his success to the 3X Programs and 3X Coach Kevin Schultz for helping him learn the system.
This article will help define the difference in throwing mechanics of pitchers to position players. It will also define the key physical differences that make up the pitcher and the position player.
The reason for this article is because I have received thousands of requests from position players for me to develop a velocity program for them. They have all heard the success of the 3X Pitching Velocity Program and now they want this level of information designed for their position. I have decided to take on this task being that throwing mechanics and training the throwing athlete is not that much more different between the pitcher and the position player.
In this article, I will give you my research and expertise of the mechanically differences of pitching to throwing for the position player. I will then show the science and what they are documenting differently when it comes to the throwing mechanics and the physical differences of the position player and the pitcher. I will also give you a look into the 2X Velocity Throwing Program for the position player to show you how we train position player throwing velocity as opposed to pitching velocity.
Post surgery doctors told me I would never pitch again because of the serious damage to my rotator cuff from throwing a baseball. I never trained with weights for baseball before the surgery. After the surgery I decided to ignore the conventional wisdom of the game which was telling me weight training would reduce performance and cause injury. Well that had already happened and it wasn’t weight training that caused it.
From then on out I chose to lift with heavy loads using the Olympic Lifts because I met Kurt Hester and he showed me what he did with LSU in the 90′s. I thought I had nothing to loss because everyone in baseball had written me off.
The hardest I ever threw before surgery at 18 years old was mid 80′s, if that. Five years after surgery and five years of serious Olympic Lifting, I was topping out at 94mph. I had also gained 65 lbs in the process. It was proof that Olympic Lifting is the legal performance enhancer for any athlete, even pitchers and that the conventional wisdom was completely wrong.
One of the biggest question I get at the 3X Velocity Camps is will increasing velocity with the 3X Pitching mechanics hurt my control. I usually say, when you go from a go cart to a corvette, yes it is more challenging to keep the car on the road. Actually what happens with pitching is no different than going full speed in a go cart to a corvette. The central nervous system (CNS) must learn how to control the new faster movement. Once the CNS gets enough reps, it will program it into your muscle memory, so you can become more consistent.
Before we dive into the top 10 ways to improve your control pitching we need to first understand what makes good pitching control. I mean, is it enough to throw it in the strike zone or do we actually want the control to hit the same spot every time, even if the location is outside of the strike zone?
In this article, I will first define the deference between accuracy and precession and then I will give you all of the facts why 3X Pitching is both accuracy and precision focused. Finally the article will list the top 10 ways to improve your pitching control. DO NOT JUST JUMP DOWN TO THE BOTTOM TO READ THE LIST. You really need to understand what we mean by control, what the science of control teaches us and what is the best approach, pitching mechanics wise, that we must make to give ourselves the best opportunity to have pin point control when pitching.
The most poorly coached pitching mechanic of the high velocity pitcher is the Load Position which is the position when the pitcher has prepared the drive leg for the drive. Not teaching a pitcher to put the drive leg into a linear position with flexion would be like NOT teaching a sprinter to get down on the block to start the race; both will have the disadvantage.
The reason most pitching coaches do not coach this Load Position is because of the athleticism that is required to implement it effectively. This position has the ability to enhance the force production of the pitching delivery which makes the delivery more dynamic. When a movement becomes more dynamic then it becomes more advanced to control. This is when it also becomes more challenging for the pitching coach to help the pitcher control the dynamics of the high velocity delivery. Most coaches would rather slow the pitcher down to make him easier to manage than to speed him up and potentially develop a high velocity pitcher.
