I'm going to take you through my weighted baseball routine and how I utilize these to establish authentic throwing mechanics
Today Dr. Heenan and I will look at some really important dynamics to consider when evaluating the pitching mechanics.
Struggle with knowing what to do when you’re stuck having to warmup and throw indoors? Here’s a preview of how I warmup while i’m indoors
Let me take you inside to give you an exclusive look at what a long toss throwing session with my family looks like!
A Full one hour long throwing session with my good friend Kevin Munson both wearing microphones and talking all things pitching
Threw my 5th Bullpen at UCSD sitting 94-96 while being mic’d up and throwing with a Rapsodo, Stalker Pro, and Pocket Radar.
Third bullpen as I begin to ramp it up even more. Increased 1 mph based on Rapsodo going from 95.1 to 96.5. Threw a 99.6 based on Diamond Kinetics ball.
Today will be about the 3rd high intensity day being performed on flat ground getting velocity and spin readings with a diamond kinetics ball.
My first bullpen since 2018! Roughly 80-90% exertion level which I sat 90-93 mph. Highlights include pocket radar and edgertronic camera.
Let's change the way we think about developing "pitchers" and start developing "throwers" that are athletic enough to vary throw types and accomplish the same goal.
Really cool content here as my good friend Tyler Goodro, former professional catcher, and I talk shop while throwing a bit of a short box
Ever since I did the Blog on "Long Arm" or "Short Arm" i've been getting tons of Arm Path questions so today I wanted to break it down into further detail and highlight my personal journey going from 85-95.
I’ve talked a lot about the importance of being “athletic” as a Pitcher and today I want to include the importance of having an “athletic arm path”
Today I want to talk about a subject that most of you know i’m really passionate about. The subject being athleticism! How can we create that environment that forces us to be athletic and rely on our athleticism to make adjustments.
Over the course of the past decade weighted ball training has become all the big hype within the Baseball Development industry. While some hype is good, some can be bad. Today I want to give my personal opinions and feedback.
Wanted to show you guys what a typical “light day” would consist of for me. Today I’ll just be throwing plyo balls in the gym for roughly 15 minutes.
As most of you know i’m a huge advocate for throwing alone and today we’ll look at a good way for you to train in a competitive environment by yourself.
Despite the negative rep that Long Toss gets I can’t be more of an advocate for it for multiple reasons that I will cover in this blog.
Today i’m going to talk about one of the many ways to “throw harder” or “throw faster” and this one will seem obvious but yet not a lot of guys are doing it or not doing it efficiently
Today’s throwing session will be featuring my parents and highlighting how they have helped aid in my training throughout my career
I've talked highly about the usage of Bell Clubs, or otherwise known as Indian Clubs, before and today I want to show my personal routine w/ the Clubs
It’s funny right? I offer “Mechanical Analysis” and here I am writing a blog on why we should avoid “Mechanics.” But what i’m about to dive into is real!
I see too many guys that want certain qualities in their game but don’t put the efficient work in that’s going to improve on what they actually want to achieve.
If you're somebody that often uses the excuse that you don't have anyone to throw with then this video is for you because there's always a way to get better even if you have to do it all by yourself!
Today I will highlight my brief 10 minute routine that I use when i'm in the bullpen and I need to be ready for the next inning.
Seeking out information is absolutely fantastic and I will always encourage it but at the same time you will do yourself a disservice if you’re constantly trying to change more n more things. This is such a fine line and I really hope that I don’t come off like I’m...
Robby Rowland breaks down the importance of not only getting ahead as a pitcher but also the ability to throw quality 0-0 pitches
Apologies for rambling – I wrote this in the airport with like 10 minutes to spare before a flight lol. (double shot espresso) What do you do when you fail? What is there to fall back on? I think these are questions that i never really prepared myself for when I got...

It’s the oldest phrase in the game… “If he stays healthy.” You hear it throughout someones career. If you’re a baseball fan, and if you’re reading this I suppose you are, then you know injuries are no joke. They can prohibit a player from ever reaching his potential....
Today's blog will be about a topic that doesn’t get talked about too often for reasons i’m not too sure of. We in the baseball world hear the word and teach the word “comfortable” a lot. Whether it be with your mechanics in pitching or mechanics in hitting. We try to...
I’m all about bringing light to certain topics that just aren’t discussed all that much. Today being the importance of having an actual plan with what you want to accomplish. Look, it’s easy for any individual to say that they want to be a Major League Baseball Player...

I am going to take this time to answer the most asked question I get.. “What do I NEED to do to get to the next level in the game of baseball.” Here’s the thing.. I can simply say for you to get to the next level you may need to develop another skill in the game, or...
