ATTENTION PITCHERS: One of the big misconceptions in baseball is that playing the game keeps you in shape to pitch. I wish that was true. It's not. To get to the next level, preparation matters. Big league pitchers spend far more time preparing to pitch than actually pitching. If you believe adding velocity could be critical to your success, check out my proven programs for pitchers of all ages.

Monday or the day after - Run 15-20 minutes. Swing a bat around. Very light toss if your arm isn't terribly sore.

Tuesday - Run poles in the outfield, 10-15. Play some catch, stretch it out to a long toss. Use 3-5 pound dumbbells to build rotator cuff and elbow.

Wednesday - Run 10-15 sprints. Great day for long tossing for 15 minutes.

Thursday - Off day pitching. Throw 90-95% to build strength and velocity. Run 10-15 sprints and use the 3-5 pound dumbbells.

Friday - Long toss again to build velocity. Run 10 minutes or 10 poles in the outfield.

Saturday - Pitch to catcher at 75% in front of the mound for 20-25 pitches. 5 sprints, and get a good nights sleep.

Sunday - Game time!
