Mariano Rivera : Train like the Pros

 

Mariano Rivera walked off the field on Tuesday night receiving a pair of standing ovations  after pitching a perfect eighth inning. He helped the American League to a 3-0 victory over the National League at Citi Field. Rivera took home the MVP honors...  How can you assist your pitchers to increase velocity like the professionals and bring home the MVP?

 

TRI-STRETCH® is a unique training device for baseball pitchers which  assists to replicate the biomechanics of pitching while the athlete strengthens the muscles most important in optimizing the pitchers mechanics and velocity.

Research demonstrates that the pattern of force development in the pitching motion is from the ground through the core to the wrist/hand. Therefore, it is reasonable to ascertain that a successful training program is one that utilizes these force patterns.   

TRI-STRETCH® allows the pitcher to strengthen the stance leg hip muscles which have been shown to have activity levels of 75-100% during pitching. 

One of the other unique features of TRI-STRETCH® is that it allows training in the position that replicates the downward slope of the mound.   Performing exercises with the stride leg foot on TRI-STRETCH® in the “backwards’ position, replicates the foot, ankle and leg position of the stride foot when planting.
