Velocity Development

Brian Hunter's Velocity Development Program

Cincinnati Red’s minor league pitcher shows what it takes to build elite arm strength while maintaining pristine health in this 8 week program. The program is for all positions ages 12 and up. We will meet twice per week (one arm strength day and one recovery/ patterning day). Group 1 runs from October 29th - December 20th and Group 2 runs from January 7th - February 28th (Mondays and Thursdays).




The purpose of this program is to utilize a 8 week period to optimize players throwing movements as well as teach each player what is required of them to become an elite player. We will assess strength, mobility, stability, mechanics of each player and utilize the program accordingly. We will establish pre-throwing routines as well as proper recovery techniques/ exercises to avoid injury and create a solid foundation for more arm strength. The first 4 weeks will be used as a build-up to allow the players time to get into adequate throwing shape. The final 4 weeks will be the arm strength development period where throwing will be of higher intensity. Players will be required to throw on their own at least two more times per week during the program. All positions welcome.
