Pitching Tips: Training Guidelines
Here are some basic terms and rules for baseball training for pitchers:
A "repetition" is one complete movement of an exercise.A "set" is a series of repetitions done in succession before resting (e.g., ten reps and rest equal one set).The amount of weight to use for each exercise varies with each person. The best rule of thumb to follow is this: The weight should be light enough for you to perform at least six successive repetitions without cheating, and it should be heavy enough so that you can't perform more than fifteen repetitions too easily.
Begin your pitching strength training with light weights and then, after a month or so, increase the weights while maintaining the same number of repetitions.Expect a slight soreness the day after each training workout. It is normal. Without it you aren't working hard enough.
