50% Distance / 50-75% effort
To warm-up the arm and body prior to high-intensity throwing, and for pattern improvement conducted at a moderate intensity while the arm and body are still in the recovery process.
Training Phase 3 will frequently be used as part of a progressive warm-up prior to high-intensity throwing, and can be utilized on recovery days while the arm isn't functioning at full capacity. The allotted 25 throws within this phase will be conducted at 50-75% effort and will never exceed more than 50% of a thrower's max distance. Scenarios for implementation include, but are not limited to:
- Prior to High-Intensity Throwing (game, practice performance day)
- Recovery Day
PROGRESSION TO TRAINING PHASE 3
In order to get to Training Phase 3, a specific progression must be followed to allow the arm and body to warm-up appropriately. This is outlined in the table below:
