SUPPORTING YOUR PERFORMANCE

Supporting your core throughout your swing is crucial to maximizing offensive efficiency. Likewise, an unsupported shoulder increases injury risk and reduces command. Either way, support is REQUIRED. The

HOW SLOPE EFFECTS YOUR DELIVERY

Human movement is based upon counterbalancing body parts to align towards one common CENTER of balance - not balance point. Since equal and opposite reactions must occur in any kinetic chain

ALL ABOUT PITCHING, NOT THROWING

VeloPRO Founder and former MLB pitcher Jim Parque is in high demand across the world due to his ability to teach pitching. There is a big difference between what it takes to throw velocity driven pitches

MOVEMENT VS. MECHANICAL TRAINING

Mechanics are just one step within a kinetic chain reaction (KCR). They work SPECIFICALLY and contradict human motor pattern sequencing - which works rhythmically. If movement (1) flow, (2) rhythm, (3)

ALL ABOUT INTERNAL PRONATION

Internal Pronation (IP) is the intenal rotation of the throwing hand after pitch release. It is the culmination of the kinetic chain reaction's entire energy load being released into the pitch. Acceleration

ALL ABOUT INTERNAL ROTATION

Internal Rotation (IR) is basically pitch release range of motion (ROM). The more degrees of IR, the more velocity producing potential. IR is elasticity in its highest pitching form, but is a subconscious

ALL ABOUT GROUND FORCE REACTION

In physics and biomechanics, GROUND FORCE REACTION (GFR) is the force exerted by the ground upon an object in contact with it. Basically, when you jump, your energy is pushed downwards and reflected back

ALL ABOUT FRONT LEG EXTENSION

​Front Leg Extension (FLE) is the straightening of the front leg after front foot strike. It is the opposite reaction to Front Knee Flex (FKF). FLE is the acceleration of mechanical energy within the

ALL ABOUT EXTERNAL ROTATION

External rotation (ER) is the lateral rotation of the throwing shoulder that is defined in biomechanics and kinesiology as a transverse movement plane. It is initiated right after foot strike in power
