One of the many hidden benefits of weighted baseballs

Most coaches / instructors at least think they understand all the benefits of weighted baseballs...  Building arm strength (overload), building arm speed (underload) are both positives associated with the use of weighted baseballs, but the benefits to positively affecting arm action, timing, and efficient movement patterns be of greater value.  The body recognizes the additional weight and understands that to preform the throw it MUST be more efficient in its movement pattern.  There are very specific drills and movements that can be done to really help pitchers "clean things up" and truly feel what its like to throw in the most efficient and healthy way possible. The feeling of doing it correctly is far more valuable and effective in correcting mechanical flaws than trying to adjust the delivery to a coaches verbal ques.

WARNING!!!!  BEFORE STARTING A WEIGHTED BALL PROGRAM MAKE SURE YOU GET WITH SOMEONE WHO CAN GIVE YOU AN ASSESSMENT PRIOR TO STARTING!  A ONE SIZE FITS ALL THROWING PROGRAM IS NOT THE MOST BENEFICIAL, AND CAN CAUSE SERIOUS INJURY!
