Do You Want A More Powerful Throwing Arm?

Baseball players are always looking to add miles per hour (MPH) to their throws. Just lifting weights and increasing arm strength won't do the trick for you. What you need is more power and explosion, or speed strength. Increase your arm speed.

What's the best way to increase arm speed? You need strength and power in your legs, core and arm (particularly a strong shoulder). Power needs to be transferred from your legs through your core to your throwing arm. This will increase your arm speed and MPH. Many athletes have strong, powerful legs but weak cores.

Along with your weightlifting program, you need to include power exercises like squat jumps, vertical leaps, sport-specific plyometric exercises and sport-specific medicine ball exercises. These power exercises should be performed at FULL SPEED.

Improve your throwing arm's MPH by "powerizing" your entire body.
