Hi, my name is Juan Carlos with Expert Village.
Today I’m going to teach you how to become a competitive baseball player. In this segment
we’re going to talk about strength training for pitchers using the Universal Machine.
Now you want to be able to set the machine up high in a pulley position to where your
arm is at this angle. Then just simply bend forward as you’re pitching the ball and just
simply come forward with the full motion of throw. This is a great strength to improve
once velocity and this is not only for pitchers this can actually be done by all players that
want to improve there velocity. If you’re left handed, you just set the angle up here
and make sure your arm is in this L position and just simply go forward. As you increase
your strength with the Universal Machine, you are going to realize that the way you
throw the ball and for pitchers the way you are throwing your fastball and your curve
ball. Especially your change up at the same type of velocity as your fastball your arm
action will increase dramatically. Increasing the weight on this as you get stronger eventually
improve your arm little by little.
