Pitchers In Season Maintenance & Recovery Program
The purpose of this program is to provide high school pitchers with a structured program aimed at keeping their arms and bodies healthy and maintaining their off season training gains while positioning the athlete to handle the upcoming summer showcase season.
Most athletes typically run the risk of “detraining” during the competitive season. Unless there are efforts to maintain general conditioning, strength, flexibility and power most athletes will experience a decline. By June athletes face a predicament where they may be tired, hurt, or just plain out of gas when the summer season begins.
Even the best off season program must be followed by a maintenance program. Think of it like this: Your body is a savings account, off season conditioning is a way of depositing or storing funds. Well developed programs allow for big deposits, others not so much. During the season (draw period) the athlete starts to spend these funds (games/practices etc). Over the course of three months it is typical for an athlete’s funds to run low or completely out (performance decrease/ or injury). Most however do manage to survive the prep season with solid performances and little to no injury issues.
However, right around the corner comes the summer season, which for all intents and purposes is the “Season to Perform”. Why, because that’s when the competition jumps up a notch, more intense scouting is done, and pitching schedules can be more haphazard and frequent. For the athlete who has just had a full prep season this can be an invitation for poor performance and heightened risk of injury just when you need strong performances most.
