The baseball off-season is a great time to work on arm health, mechanical inefficiencies, mobility and strength. Try this movement sequence anytime of the year to help warm up prior to throwing, working out or simply to improve stance leg mobility. (repeat on other side)
Tight hip musculature can cause a host of problems for overhead athletes, especially during a repetitive a task like pitching. Add this routine to your traditional hip mobility regimen and not only will you improve the mobility of the stance leg but also the stride leg, thoracic spine, scapula and connected musculature and surrounding tissues.
It’s important to work on mobility through all three planes of motion in task specific positions to maximize the activation and communication between proprioceptors throughout the kinetic chain.
