Functional Strength Training for Pitchers explains why it is not an individual's absolute strength that is important when pitching a baseball; rather, it is his functional strength, because pitchers are only as strong as their body's weakest link. In a clear, easy-to-understand manner, the DVD demonstrates on-the-field training protocols that are designed to build throwing strength and endurance and to minimize a pitcher's risk of being injured-while maximizing his competitive edge.
