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.

By standing on the TRI-STRETCH® with the stance leg and while balancing on the TRI-STRETCH® lifting the opposite hip in to the pitchers prayer position: the TRI-STRETCH® instability further enhances the balance training and the firing of the hip muscles.
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.
Pitching Coaches and Movement Professionals working with pitchers can optimize pitching velocity of any age pitcher by understanding the significance the entire kinetic chain has on force generation and ultimately pitching velocity. An added benefit of training the kinetic chain specific to pitching instead of an isolated muscle focus, is injury prevention, resulting in increased protection from elbow and shoulder injuries to your pitching staff.
