Haven’t posted in awhile, so I figured I’d chime in with what’s new at Driveline Baseball:
- We’re getting close to a prototype that attaches the Wii MotionPlus to the pitching wrist and can measure the rate of change (in degrees) of pronation/supination during the delivery
How cool is that? We’ve opened and tinkered with this simple module:
And with some programming and some hacking, we’ll be able to measure one of the key mechanical factors in the baseball pitching delivery. I’m really stoked.
- Moving into the facility has been slow going
We still don’t have all of our strength equipment at the NSBA facility yet, as we’re going through a long process in order to make sure all of our ducks are in a row.
- We got our shipment of bands from EliteFTS
Our strength training programs incorporate a lot of speed/power/dynamic effort work taken directly from the guys at Westside Barbell and EliteFTS, so we’re happy to have gotten all of our bands to use for dynamic efforts. Here’s a sample picture (not of my gym) of a band-resisted squat setup:
We have a few guys trying to break through some plateaus with all the challenges of in-season training, and I know that bands and dynamic effort-based training will help them get there.
That’s all for now! There will be a lot of videos and multimedia stuff going on once we get moved into our facility.
