This is a sister post to the Pre-Season – Core and Mobility post. That post focused on exercises that build the mobility and flexibility required to develop and support a fluent throwing motion. This post takes the next step, introducing some more challenging exercises that build strength around that mobility.

Push Ups Taps
1 Set = (start at 5 building up to) 10 on each arm- From push up position take one hand off the ground and tap the opposite shoulder. Try not to rush it, your core should keep you balanced with only one hand on the ground.
