3 Ways To Level-Up Your Arm Care [Step-By- Step Guide]


Are you constantly worried about arm injuries? Do you feel that your current arm care routine is not cutting it? Well, you're not alone. Many players underestimate the importance of a robust arm care routine. In today's blog, we're going to delve into the concept of "load" and how adding it to your arm care exercises can be a game-changer.

The Load Factor: Why It's Crucial

The Problem with Traditional Arm Care
  • Traditional arm care often involves light resistance bands and basic exercises.
  • These exercises are not sufficient to prepare your arm for the high-stress activity of baseball.
The Solution: Adding Load
  • Adding load to your exercises simulates the actual stress your arm will face.
  • This prepares your arm better and reduces the risk of injuries.

Three Ways to Add Load

1. Add Weight
  • Why: Adding weight increases the resistance, making your muscles work harder.
  • How: Start with lighter weights and gradually increase as you become comfortable.
2. Increase Time
  • Why: Increasing the duration of the exercise adds more stress, improving endurance.
  • How: Begin with short durations and aim to increase the time in each session.
3. Extend Range of Motion
  • Why: A greater range of motion engages more muscle groups.
  • How: Focus on exercises that allow for extended movement.
