Specificity of Types of Muscle Fibers Type IIB and Type IIA Muscle Fiber Types and Specificity Type IIB muscle fibers are fast twitch glycolytic and are the speed producers.  Type IIA muscle fibers are fast twitch oxidative and are intermediate speed producers.  Structured training has been proven to make our recruitment of muscle types more […]

The key to velocity is biomechanics. Each athlete is unique, but the formula for throwing the ball efficiently is the same.   Where you create velocity is a product of how you use your body throughout the individual phases of the throwing motion.  Understanding what to do and when needs to be understood and felt by […]

Vf=Vi + At Final Velocity=Initial Velocity + Acceleration (Time) Final velocity is a product of initial velocity plus the acceleration force over a period of time. The longer you apply an acceleration force to the ball, the greater the final velocity. This correlates to stride length and amount of time the hand is in contact […]
