There are individuals on the web right now former professional pitchers, college athletes, strength and conditioning coaches that are all trying to invalidate each other in order to substantiate their programs. Many of these individuals use disparaging comments about the specificity of speed training, weighted ball usage, weighted vests, how none of them work to create velocity and then offer a program of weight training or conditioning that is non-specific and in no way related to the necessary muscular balance and functional stability required to accelerate a ball with any force. They also site clinical research to validate the programs they offer. We purchased these programs, contacted these individuals and inquired as to the relevance of the clinical research to their programs and found a surprising lack of understanding of the principles behind the research they cited or the intended purpose of the clinical research in the first place. We find this interesting that the same individuals that say weight training doesn’t work offer weight-training programs. There is only one way to accelerate a ball efficiently and that is to have rotational core stability. Exercises that have nothing to do with rotational core stability do not correlate to baseball and have no functional transference to the movement patterns necessary to throw the ball effectively.
