Baseball Drill of the Week | "Jump Backs"

This week's Pitching Drill of the Week is "Jump Backs".

Jump backs are a lower body drill that helps to promote a positive, explosive move to the target. This will help with accuracy, velocity, and promote more of a total body throw. They can be used by anyone but especially helpful for players who have trouble directing energy/momentum to their target. We recommend a couple times a week, and we usually implement them closer to the season.

The athlete will start in a stretch position and hop back towards 2B. They will then want to focus on gathering themselves as quickly as possible and ridirect their energy and momentum towards the target.

Please watch Coach Army (@tbzarmy) as he demonstrates below:
