If I do buy, I intend to use the program with players aged 9 to 18 who I coach at various levels. I am looking to incorporate more bodyweight training, plyometrics, etc. It seems that every season the number of pitchers and position guys with "sore" arms increases, and I am looking to help them stay healthy and learn to repeat the correct, safe mecahnics.
