Young baseball player?
I have had the honor of working with some of the brightest minds in sports over the past 23 years. From head trainer Jeff Cooper in Philly, to Phil Donnelly (member of the PTC HOF), to Dr. Craig Morgan. Chris Correnti, and Dr. Bill Morgan, along with the gang at API …These past eight years I’ve run across one awesome strength coach, and head trainer, and my newest friend, in Eric Cressey. Eric’s web site I linked earlier, and here it is click to see.
I don’t do this stuff for reasons past the obvious. These are some of the brightest minds on the planet when it comes to the throwing athlete and the throwing shoulder. My last strength and conditioning coach, Dave Page (who’s been a close friend for the last 8 years), is one of the most passionate people alive when it comes to his athletes. Notice I said ‘his athletes’ because that’s the thing that sets these people apart from the rest of the world.
That’s the main reason guys like Paul Lessard are people you befriend for life. They come to the park, work incredibly insane hours and dedicate their lives to making their players feel better. Paulie (Shrek as he’s known around here) and Pager are two of the best guys you’d ever want to meet.
These guys (and gals, such as Sue Falsone, and yes Craig Friedman and Mark V!) are in it for the athlete. They care ABOUT YOU, and what happens to you. They aren’t in this thing to make a name for themselves, they are in it to make you healthier, and a better performer. Well Pagey is part of a new video that I can assure young throwers will help. You can find it here.
The key though is to do the work, as it’s stated and to understand your arm and body as it relates to the work.
