    “Knowing your why” changed the way I played the game.  This concept isn’t difficult or complex, it just takes effort on the part of the player. It wasn’t until I was a collegiate baseball player that I found “my why” and saw what this concept could truly do for me as an athlete. “Knowing your why” is as simple as asking questions.

     As a player it can be intimidating to ask a coach why.  Some coaches may be de...

Every year, Prime and other facilities are flooded with collegiate and professional hopefuls.  The "grinders" walk through the door the required amount of times to make a relatively quick impact on their craft, casual guys stroll in when it is convenient, and the guys being pushed to work out make it in when they can't get out of it.  The off season rolls on, some guys fade, others get "too busy", and a few stay at it, working...

Before we begin, it is important to understand where this study originated from.  Over the past few weeks/months, quite a few of our players have made colossal strides with velocity improvement.  Like  a few other programs out there, a part of our program calls for maximum effort, run and gun (crow hop) throwing efforts.  Often after a break out day, players want to immediately hop on a mound and find out what that translates...

Athletes everywhere are bigger, faster, stronger.  What we will hone in on today is the "bigger" part of this equation.  Studies have routinely shown that the strongest correlation for velocity amongst throwers is body weight.  

The more mass you can tack on         (without pushing into compromising levels of body fat) will add velocity.   Building on this revelation, take a moment to google olympic sprinters. You...

There is a growing trend in the baseball community and it’s changing the game for the worse.  We’ve stopped creating good baseball players and started manufacturing high octane athletes that don’t understand the necessity for the infield fly rule. The emergence of recruiting businesses that pump out showcases weekly and the competitive nature of the collegiate recruiting process pave the way for this detrimental movement. Ath...

One of the biggest challenges a strength coach faces is ensuring that their clients time is used as effectively as possible. Between foam rolling, corrective stretching, speed and agility, power production, core stability/strength/power, and volume work, the most productive path can quickly become clouded. Having a plan is essential but moreso, being able to make revisions and adapt to time constraints is far more paramount....

Over the years of giving instruction and the thousands of hours of lessons, one of my largest takeaways is the importance of trusting the process.  Every client is unique and has a very different set of needs.  When prescribing a mechanical change it's important that you believe in the drill, and understand that the results will not always immediately reflect what you are attempting to change.  This is especially prevelant...
