So my son would like to start an armcare/throwing program to keep his arm healthy and increase velocity. Up to this point his focus has been on throwing mechanics and staying healthy. He is a hs freshman, average size 5'9" 125 lbs. He has lifted some but is really just starting out, has already had his first growth spurt and is midway thru puberty. From my limited knowledge it seems like these programs work best done consistently and multiple days per week over a long period of time.
Have any of your son's done such a program? What was the time commitment weekly and was it part of their regular strength and conditioning program? What was the result? Specifically I am trying to figure out whether he would do this separately and then do a regular gym workout as well or if these programs like driveline, velo U or others incorporate a full body workout to save the time on a separate trip to the gym. With other sports and positional training he needs to use his time as efficiently as possible.
I also would love to hear your son's offseason/winter training schedules and routines.
