HOW TO LONG TOSS video and narration by @jaegersports
We’ve had some great collaboration on this topic and share the belief that LONG TOSS, when performed properly, is an extremely effective tool to improve arm endurance, throwing mechanics, range of motion and strength.
THIS IS A CLIP FROM A YOUTUBE VIDEO from @jaegersports that I’ve shared with hundreds of players. ENJOY!

💥Arm Path Athleticism💥
Something I’m extremely big on is something I call “Arm Path Athleticism”
I know you guys hear me talk about athleticism a lot but some just think of athleticism as running fast or jumping high. For Pitchers I look at the Arm Path n the ability to vary your throws but still accomplish a command goal. That shows me you have the ability to make adjustments on the fly that require a ton of athleticism! And we know that athleticism trumps all!
I did a full Blog on this where I breakdown this concept into more detail and even include a piece from @floridabaseballranch Podcast on this same topic. Head over to the link in bio - blogs - robby row

💥 THE 100MPH FORMULA💥
The #100mphformula is something I get asked about daily. I honestly don’t know if it exists. Too many anatomical and genetic factors that we can’t influence, but I will say that we have many athletes making hard strides to hitting all of the above metrics.
I have come to the conclusion on these numbers based on thousands of baseball players testing the #90mphformula , our performance tests with weighted balls/sprinting/plyometrics, and most importantly injury reduction metrics that show a huge correlation to keeping our guys healthy. These numbers are for the elite. For most, these numbers are unattainable and unrealistic.
For the majority of you, I’d like you to think of these as targets to balance out your training. If one metric is on point (say bw or deadlift) and another is poor (say chin-ups or reverse lunges) then you are increasing your risk for injury AND leaving velocity on the table. Structural balance is key. I’d rather see a 2x bw reverse lunge + deadlift + 10 bw chin-ups than just having a great dead and chin-up.
The #90mphformula has proven to be highly accurate in predicting limitations that decrease velocity and increase injury risks. The metrics of the formula are attainable for most high school baseball players, let alone college or pro athletes. One metric I would change from this image is the bodyweight chin-ups to 13, not 10. We have found that 13 correlated better to UCL injury reduction.
As always, I believe movement quality should be prioritized over strength. An issue I’m seeing more of with the information we are sharing is that people take the numbers as gospel and just destroy themselves with poor movement training. If you are practicing a lunge with 💩 form, don’t expect your throwing or running mechanics to be anything but 💩.
