This introductory course serves as the important first steps in protecting athletes’ throwing arms.
This course will communicate ArmCare.com strategies for optimizing throwing arm strength, range of motion and mechanics.
The certificate course had been designed to reduce overuse injuries by managing fatigue, recovery and weakness to optimize training.
Learn why the motto, “Strength Matters Most” is a mantra that everyone in baseball should acknowledge and be concerned with as it relates to competitive performance and athlete wellness.
Understand why greater maximum strength capacity is a major contributor to maintaining performance, minimizing recovery needs and reducing fatigue.
Identify key contributors to fatigue and why we state, “Fatigue is the Enemy” in raising injury risks among throwing athletes.
Gain perspective about how to prevent injuries before they actually occur across a strength spectrum leading to biomechanical compensation – movements that occur when the throwing arm is fatigued that increases loading on the shoulder and elbow above what they can tolerate.
Understand the flow and key considerations in how athletes are assessed using ArmCare’s screening process on a daily basis, exam schedules, and evaluations offered through premium app functionality.
Learn important viewpoints on the current state of pitch counts and how adjustments need to be considered based on biological age, velocity enhancement, growth stages, tournament play and more.
