When Liam started with us, his main issue was elbow pain from a torn UCL. Liam had already received a UCL repair with an internal brace before re-tearing the UCL, so surgery was not even an option. Our emphasis was to create adaptations that would allow Liam to withstand the acute stress of high velocity throwing with a torn ligament. The human body is limitless, we just created an opportunity to adapt.
Adaptation can come in many forms, and if given the opportunity the human body can adapt to anything. Liam has invested fully in our holistic training approach. He has only begun to reap the benefits of believing in himself, and his program.
Becoming strong only matters until a certain threshold when discussing high-velocity throwing and movement. Liam greatly exceeded all of the strength metrics that could matter when he began working with us. In the weight room, we began focusing more on speed work. Upper and lower body rebounds, co-contractions, and reactive drop catches were the main aspects of his program.
Now Liam is blowing 98 mph past hitters. His in-game velocity sits around 93-96mph, and he still has potential for more velocity gains in the future. We work together daily to ensure that Liam will continue improving for the rest of his career. In one offseason Liam transformed from an athlete looking to play D1 baseball to a Draft Prospect.
