Can Anyone Increase Pitching Velocity?
This is a great question and the many studies listed below prove that increasing pitching velocity is very possible. Especially if the pitcher has the proper knowledge of high velocity pitching mechanics and an effective pitching velocity specific training program.

3X Pitching Velocity Program
Just imagine a program to increase pitching velocity that has the scientific research like above, that has the results from satisfied pitchers like above, and comes with a money back guarantee that if you don't increase pitching velocity then you get your money back? Crazy right! Could something this amazing exist? Well, what if I told you it does and today is your day to capture it.
Are You Ready to Throw Harder?
The 3X Pitching Velocity Program might just be the most effective program ONLINE to increase pitching velocity. Your personal pitching Coach/Trainer Brent Pourciau will push you past your limits through a 16 week off-season pitching velocity program and through the 3X Pre and In-season programs. These 3X Programs are packed with tons of pitching velocity throwing drills, Olympic style training, plyometric drills, core and joint integrity routines on top of short explosive intervals of strength, power and resistance conditioning. All you need is a local gym and the will to become a high velocity pitcher.
The Method Behind the Velocity Increase
The secret to these mind-blowing 3X Pitching Velocity Program results: 5-10mph in 16 weeks or less. Coach Brent took conventional pitching instruction and flipped it on its head - you will learn how to reverse engineer the pitcher to throw from the ground up instead of the top down. The 3X Pitching Velocity Program keeps the pitcher constantly challenged as you alternate between the 3X throwing drills and the explosive power training in the Fusion System which is performed at MAX. The result: an explosive pitcher using ground up pitching mechanics to convert stride power into rotational forces and finally into ball speed.
