Arm Development Program (ADP)

• ADP is 100% arm strengthening and mechanical refinement
• Designed for BOTH pitchers and position players, all levels
• Rigorous strengthening routine
• Uses signature “ground to release” mechanical progression
• Drills designed to increase athleticism and explosive movement
• Throwing is intensive

ADP is designed for BOTH pitchers and position players. Time is spent strengthening the arm with a routine they will again repeat at home. Weekly drills focus on proper throwing mechanics and explosive movement. It is structured to be throwing intensive and follows Coach Brower’s “Ground to Release” approach. Brower Baseball understands a player’s arm is their #1 tool. Quality throwing mechanics will help maintain a healthy arm which in turn allows arm strength, accuracy and velocity to improve, a goal for every player. Players are allowed the time and repetitions needed to “learn their arm” and to establish quality throwing mechanics and habits. Ultimately this lays an important foundation for preparing for the upcoming season and leads to a better baseball experience because you are playing and not recovering. "Ground to Release" is an approach to throwing used in all Brower Baseball development programs. It is a mechanical progression and incorporates a dynamic strengthening routine, stretching and drills specific to that session’s focus. Jim Brower created and successfully used this approach in his preparation for Spring Training throughout his 17-year professional playing career. Today as a professional pitching coach, he continues to find these principles relevant and beneficial in curriculum and methodology for both his amateur and professional players. Education is a core value and building block in all of Brower Baseball's programs. Without this vital foundation, players are merely following a physical routine.
