There is a sequential reason why hard throwers have very similar aspects to their throwing motion. Not all throwing motions are the same, but close analysis reveals similarities within the individualized throwing motions that illuminate why hard throwers create effortless velocity. Generating speed and transferring speed throughout the body requires a perfectly timed kinematic sequence. […]

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 […]

Our bodies are biomechanical machines. The muscles are the engines that control the skeleton. We created the OAI to raise the level of understanding for players and coaches, as well as instructors, with regards to the musculoskeletal and physiological principals that rule and govern the throwing motion. Understanding how the body works and how to […]
