From increasing the distance of the mound to the plate to an epidemic of timing problems, Angel and Joe close out their fifth season with a great discussion of these two topics.

The MLB is currently experimenting with moving the pitching mound back. Angel weighs in on the effect she thinks it will have on the pitchers...and you may be surprised to hear her take on it.

And as a troubleshooter for the pitching motion, Angel has noticed an increasing epidemic of timing issues. She discusses why she thinks this is a prevalent issue and what coaches need to be aware of in terms of not only its effect on a pitcher's acceleration and location but also when making decisions about training methods for pitchers with this problem.

Episode 17, December 26th - 2018 Season

This Week

In the “Coaching the Coaches” segment, Angel gives you the-how and the-why of these two actions which can either make or break a pitchers throwing and/or pitching motion. Included in the discussion are tips for ways you can work with your pitchers on the field during practice and flat-ground throwing to assess and correct these very important skills.

In the “All It Takes is All You Got” segment, you will hear about and see a critical exercise for pitchers that deals with the rotation phase of the pitching motion; i.e., when the pitcher transitions from his sideways-stride downhill to his facing-the-target position. This is quite possibly one of the most misunderstood skills in the pitching motion and during the explanation of the exercise, you will also learn and be able to understand this invaluable component of the motion. It ties in with the first segment and promises to deliver great information. Visit Angel Borrelli Pitching You on Tube Channel to watch as you learn.

In the very popular “All it Takes is All you Got” segment, the next priority-training muscle group is discussed.Coupling it with the last episodes’ objectives for the pitcher’s body, there should be no question as to why the biceps and elbow flexors are the topic for this episode.Your next three exercises are discussed with accompanying visuals on my YouTube Channel Angel Borrelli Pitching .A complete and thorough explanation of the elbow flexors and their role in pitching is also discussed.
