USPBL Throwing Program: On Sale Now!
The same throwing program utilized by the pros in the USPBL is now on sale to the public at a discounted rate!
The USPBL Throwing Program can be applied to any player, at any position, on the field. The throwing program takes into account the demands and situations frequently encountered at each individual position, and provides guidance on how to meet throwing-related goals for both in-season and off-season.
As a vital component of the DVS System, the USPBL Throwing Program allows any player to appropriately coordinate when to throw, how much to throw, and how hard to throw. Through an easy-to-follow process, each player can follow a system of checks-and-balances to better ensure they're getting the most out of their throwing, while limiting the amount of excess stress on the throwing arm.
Customized Throwing Distances: Each player or team will receive their own set of Custom Throwing Distances that are calculated based on a player's individual specifications. These are important as they not only ensure that each player is repeating a game-like pattern and trajectory, but they also account for days in which throwing should be conducted at a lighter intensity.
True Ball Flight Criteria: In combination with the Customized Throwing Distances, the True Ball Flight Criteria provide every player with the means to assess the efficiency surrounding each throw made on any given day. If a player finds themselves consistently having trouble abiding by these standards, regardless of the distance, it is highly recommended that that player get their DVS Score done. This will give further insight into the quality of their throwing pattern, which is highly linked to stress on the arm.
Built-in Accuracy Standards: The Accuracy Standards built into the program ensures that every player focuses on repeatability and accuracy while conditioning their arm in the process. As consistency is a vital attribute to a pitcher's success on the mound, accuracy is something that should not be overlooked when going through a daily throwing regimen.
Soreness Protocols: The Soreness Protocols provide a way for every player to adjust their throwing regimen based on what their body is prepared to handle. No matter if you are a pitcher or position player, you will always know exactly what you should be doing on any given day based on your individual characteristics and symptoms.
Training Phases: Training Phases are reserved for video analysis, dry work, and position-specific skill work. All throwing conducted in any Training Phase should be completed at a sub-maximal intensity between 30-75%.
Performance Phases: Performance Phases allow a player to test their position-specific throw at a maximal intensity. Not only does this enhance arm strength and speed, but because advancement through these phases is contingent upon accuracy, consistency and repeatability are expected to improve as well.
Thrower's and Coach's Handbook: Depending on the program purchased, a player or coach will have access to a virtual handbook that includes various throwing examples, soreness examples, FAQ's, and a way to update Customized Throwing Distances upon completion of the program.
In less than two months, players within the United Shore Professional Baseball League have shown significant improvements since incorporating the USPBL Throwing Program into their daily regimen. Combined with the rest of the DVS System, players have been able to facilitate improvements in their throwing pattern, shoulder flexibility, and arm health. Below are just a handful of players that have translated their hard work into real results.
Chris McDonald: McDonald saw significant gains in his fastball velocity by understanding how to better manipulate his 6'5'' frame to his advantage, and then repeat those adjustments on a daily basis through the USPBL Throwing Program. His average fastball velocity went from 85.6 mph to 88.6 mph, and his max climbed from 88.6 mph to 93 mph. Once again, that's about a 3 mph jump on his average fastball and slightly more than a 4 mph increase on his max fastball, in no more than six weeks. Also, McDonald was able to reap the benefits of the DVS System by improving his ROM by 8º on average, and saw his Total Arm Motion Difference improve on average from -7º to 1º, which has reduced his overall likelihood of injury by 150%, and led to better performance output. In light of this hard work and being able to translate it to the mound, McDonald recently got signed by the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Evan Piechota: Evan saw his ball velocity jump to 88.1 mph, and his max ball velocity climb to 91 mph. That's about a 1.5 mph increase on his average fastball and a 4 mph on his max fastball in no more than six weeks time. Also, by improving his muscle function and utilizing smarter throwing protocols, Evan's ROM improved nearly 6º on average, and his Total Arm Motion Difference between each shoulder improved on average from -7.5º to -1º. This trend essentially reduced his likelihood of injury by 150%, and allowed his arm to perform at a higher level. As a product of his hard work, Evan recently got signed by the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Jalen Miller: Since implementing the System into this daily routine, Jalen has seen his top velocity jump 2-3 mph up to 96 mph, with his average improve around 3 mph. He has increased his overall shoulder flexibility 8º (152º to 160º), and his average Total Arm Motion Difference has gone from -4.8 to 9.75, further reducing his chance of sustaining a throwing-related injury.
Hawtin Buchanan: Since the start of the season, sound mechanical adjustments, smart throwing guidelines, and improvements in shoulder function have led to an increase of more than 2 mph on his average fastball, and 3 mph (96 mph) on his top fastball. He has also seen an increase of nearly 11º (148º to 159º) in his shoulder ROM patterns. As a product of this, his average Total Arm Motion Difference has went from -6.3º to 1.1º, and his GIRD has decreased from -20º to 13º. This has has ultimately decreased his overall chance of a sustaining a throwing related injury by 150%.
Jacob Ezell: Before joining the USPBL, and within the first five weeks of the season, Ezell continually battled prolonged soreness, pain, and fatigue after outings. Ezell rarely threw between starts because of elbow pain. However, through sound mechanical adjustments, and being able to repeat those adjustments on a daily basis within the USPBL Throwing Program, Ezell was able to improve his DVS Score from 12 to 17. This, in combination with the throwing guidelines set forth by the program, and the DVS Arm Care System, Ezell has been able to reduce his soreness and expedite his recovery time. As a product of this, Ezell's shoulder range-of-motion has increased nearly 10º on average (157º to 167º), and his average Total Arm Motion Difference has went from -8.8º to 5.64º. The latter has reduced Ezell’s likelihood of sustaining a throwing related injury by 150%.
Jared Gaynor: By throwing more efficiently through the guidelines set forth by the USPBL Throwing Program, combined with good mechanical adjustments and valid arm care solutions, Gaynor has seen a 2 mph increase on his average fastball velocity, while seeing his max fastball jump 3 mph. As a product of the System, Gaynor has also improved his shoulder ROM by an average of 9º, and further reduced his chance of sustaining a throwing related injury; all in seven weeks time.
Donny Murray: Overall, since joining the USPBL seven weeks ago and becoming saturated within the DVS System, Murray has improved his DVS Score by 3 points, which has taken him out of the extreme risk category, increased his shoulder flexibility by an average 7º (162º to 169º), and reduced his likelihood of sustaining a throwing related injury by 150% (-7.3 to 2.8) on average. Not to mention he recently threw the first no-hitter in USPBL history.
The results above aren't just a product of talent or hard work, but rather training the right way on a daily basis. Efficiency. Repeatability. Health. Because of this, every player has the same opportunity for improvement relative to what their abilities allow. Click here to get started today!
