Ok let’s get into it!
Core Training Is Functional
When you rotate on the pitcher’s mound. You are using all of your core. Especially your back hip (for power) and you front hip (for balance).
If you were to stand in an extended foot land position (similar to Nolan above) where your shoulder and opposite hip are separated, then you should feel your core engage across your entire body.
For example. Stand up and place both your hands at a 45 degree angel above your head. Now rotate your body. Keep your feet flat on the ground. This movement requires core engagement.
If Your Core Is Weak,
You Will Turn Slow,
And Throw Slow.
It is so important to train with rotational movements. This should be in your workout routine each week. At least 3 times a week.
Here is 2 of my favorite core workouts.
Here is 2 Velocity Core Workouts
Grab a med ball and with feet flat on the floor, hold a medball in your hands.
Twist and touch the medball on the floor.
Then twist again and touch the other side of the floor.
Move quickly and reach from one side to the other.
Tap the floor each rep.
Here is video instruction of this move:
This move has to be in your core workouts every week. Aim for high volume reps and as you get stronger. Increase the weight.
Core Workout #2 Med Ball Punch
Next, find a wall, friend or field.
Stand laterally to your target.
Twist and punch a medball as fast as you can.
Make sure you explode your hips. Also make sure you work both sides equally.
Velocity Secrets Are In Your Core
What if you have more velocity potential, but you never tap into it. (You can throw harder, but you do not know it yet. You haven’t used a huge part of your body. The core)
Well there is only one way to find out. Get your core super strong. Make your rotating core muscles the most important part of your training. And do not let anything stop you from dominating your core strength.
Do You Have a Plan?
The best core strength training is one that is planned out each day. You need to make these a constant habit every time you train.
