Sequencing the 95 MPH Delivery

By admin 0

In Hacking the Kinetic Chain, we’ve developed a system that has evolved over six years of research and development and took over two years to fully write. Unlike other products, we do not shy away from the reality that all other “gurus” ignore – developing elite-level velocity and staying healthy is hard. In Hacking the Kinetic Chain, we outlined the 12-step mechanical model that illustrates and describes the 95+ MPH delivery, and today’s giveaway is that sequencing chart.

Sequencing the 95+ MPH Delivery

The pitching delivery is broken up into three main groups and twelve subgroups, and they are:

Lower Half

  • Loading
  • Striding
  • Rotation
  • Blocking

Trunk

  • Rotation
  • Stabilization
  • Flexion

Arms

  • Separation
  • Pickup
  • Disconnection
  • Driveline
  • Recovery

As you can see in the chart above, some subgroups have overlap while others do not. This is a 178 frame analysis of Trevor Bauer’s pitching mechanics, who averaged over 95 MPH and touched 99+ MPH in the big leagues in 2014. Images of the various conventional stages of the delivery are provided for reference – balance point, stride foot contact, maximum external rotation, ball release, and maximum internal rotation.

Hacking the Kinetic Chain

In Hacking the Kinetic Chain, we’ve outlined this sequence and provided 261 pages of reading material, 30+ videos, and 10+ programs for in-season, off-season, recovery, and other modalities to ensure you can develop an elite set of pitching mechanics expressed like only your anthropometry and anatomical structure are capable of. We do not put pitchers in a box; we provide them the tools and training methods to develop as a complete pitcher.
