Throw Harder From the Outfield With One Simple Trick

Wednesday, February 14, 2024

Having a strong and accurate arm is crucial for outfielders, but many struggle with getting enough power behind their throws or staying on line to hit their target. If you want to unleash your full throwing potential and turn yourself into a human cannon from the outfield, then you need to try this innovative training method called overcoming isometrics. The concept is simple - replicate your throwing motion and land in the ready position with a resistance band held taut in front. Push and hold for 5 seconds against the band, keeping your body stacked and centered. Then immediately grab a medicine ball and make a full-effort throw, focusing on rotary power and getting over that lead side. This resisted priming paired with an explosive throw teaches your muscles to maximize strength in the exact positions used when throwing, while also ingraining proper technical patterns. Throwing involves a coordinated sequence of movements, so by overloading specific positions and transitions, you can optimize the kinetic chain. Many outfielders lose significant power and accuracy by falling offline or not getting enough body turn and hip/torso separation. Overcoming isometrics address these limitations directly. You'll feel yourself driving harder off that back side, rotating more aggressively through the core, and leading with the front shoulder better during each throw. The end result - no more weak lobs or tailing throws. Just pure gas and pinpoint precision to shut down anyone brave enough to test your arm. Bring the heat from the outfield and take charge of the field with this innovative throwing training.
