Every pitcher must develop a strength training routine to take their game to the next level.
In the past, pitching coaches have preached about the dangers of pitcher strength training. As a result, there are countless myths and misconception exist.
Fortunately, new research and real life results have proven that pitchers can greatly benefit from strength training.
Strength training through weightlifting, plyometric exercises, core specific exercises, explosive medicine ball training, high-intensity sprinting, agility’s, and rotator cuff exercises have proven to reduce injuries, and increase velocity in pitchers today.
Pitchers no longer need to use old fashion and possibly ineffective methods that were utilized in the past. Nolan Ryan revolutionized the idea of pitchers and weightlifting, and his teachings have carried on through today.
Almost every pitcher in the MLB incorporates an in-season and off-season strength training regime.

One of the big misconceptions in baseball is that playing the game keeps you in shape to pitch. I wish that was true. It’s not. To get to the next level, preparation is everything — but you need a plan. Big league pitchers spend far more time preparing to pitch than actually pitching.
