ALL ABOUT ELBOW EXTENSION
CREATED BY BASEBALL PLAYERS FOR BASEBALL PLAYERS
BERNSTEIN PRINCIPLE - Originated by Soviet neurologist, Nikolai Bernstein, this scientific principle states that the body will organize itself in accordance to the overall goal of balance and movement.
ELBOW EXTENSION is the analytic that quantifies how far out front the elbow is positioned over the shoulder (right before release). The more elbow extension - the harder a pitcher throws, the better the pitch plane, and the higher the breaking pitch capabilities.
High velocity pitchers experience major EE due to elastic energy impacts that start with ground reaction force (GRF). If the lower and upper halves are synced to the front foot strike (FFS), then elastic energy is transferred properly into the upper half - and then into the throwing elbow.
Elbow injuries are rooted in this "sync" timing and whether energy overloads the elbow joint prematurely (upsupported). Weighted baseballs can upload the elbow too much if lower half support is not optimized and this is why VeloPRO training harnesses are the next step in velocity development - SUPPORTED VELOCITY OPTIMIZED BY DYNAMIC MOVEMENT AND BALANCE.
