Mastering the Art of Pitching Mechanics: A Personalized Approach

Welcome to the wonderful world of the human body throwing a baseball!

There are an infinite number of ways to use your body to throw the ball.

No matter what mechanics say, your body moves & operates in personal-specific ways.

Because from childhood, a person deals with gravity in their way and this affects the formation of the musculoskeletal system. (Both skeletal and muscular)

During fetal life, our brain forms specific nerve connections that will later activate particular muscles, shaping their dominance throughout our lives. These connections are known as “Motor Preferences.”

The process of implementation does not involve enforcing Motor Preferences but rather involves understanding and profiling athletes.

By creating an environment where they can freely explore and express themselves, they have the opportunity to become the best version of themselves. Age is not a determining factor in this context.

Allowing children/Players to explore is essential, as we know that “The body will never harm itself.”

Coaches/Trainers/Instructors/Biomechanists need to recognize that if they are unaware of a player’s motor profile, coaching the intent alone can still lead to positive outcomes, as the body will naturally organize itself to achieve the ultimate goal, as described by Bernstein’s principle.
