The Health, Strength and Longevity of your arm is your lifeline as a baseball or softball player — it’s just that simple. But the arm must be developed like any other part of your game through dedicated work and preparation — by being proactive, instead of reactive. Thrive On Throwing 2 was created with this in mind, and is a must see video for anyone who is serious about having a long and healthy playing career.
The Jaeger Sports J-Bands: A mandatory tool for any baseball or softball player who wants their arm to be a strength, rather than a liability.
This rotator cuff exercise program is the key to preventing arm injuries while promoting arm health, strength, endurance and recovery period. Just as sprinters would never consider running a race without thoroughly stretching out their hamstrings baseball/softball players should never consider picking up a baseball/softball without doing their surgical tubing bands.
