You’ll Shoot Your Eye Out Kid!
My son, Ryan is a Texan! He came home from Weatherford College last week sporting a brand new pair of ostrich skin cowboy boots, and a tattoo of a bible verse on his wrist.
And now he wants a shotgun.
It happened to his older brother, Ty, when he went to school out there too. Ty came back an avid fisherman, hunter, and collector of firearms.
I blame Flint Wallace, the best college pitching coach in the country. I sent my kids out there to become better pitchers, and he sent them back all Texanated!
Duck hunting, fishing, deer hunting…..Ryan is even beginning to talk and sound just like George W. Bush! “Merica”
So when Ryan came home asking for a shotgun, I knew it was inevitable. I also knew that I could probably leverage the situation to get something done that I really needed.
You see Ryan is hoping to have a career in TV production and is an expert videographer and video editor. I have been working on the video editing forEngineering the Superhuman Pitching Machine Vol 3: Taking Action. Targeting Your Training. For over a month. I’m ok at editing video, but Ryan is a master. What takes me a month, he can get done in a day.
So I made a deal. I would approve of him getting a shotgun for Christmas if he would finish editing 3 projects I have going right now: Superhuman 3, and 2 Rocket Science Live Videos: Pilates for Pitchers, and Weighted Ball Holds: ARMory Style.
I knew his mother would have the ultimate say in the decision to allow Ryan to purchase a weapon, so it was a no lose proposition for me.
Well, let me tell you, Ryan was ignited. He sprung into gear yesterday and finished editing SH3 and Holds. He says he’ll have Pilates done by Christmas!
I couldn’t be more excited.
The completion of Superhuman 3 will wrap up the trilogy that reveals everything about the process that has produced 48 and counting 90 mph gunslingers over the past 34 months.
Engineering The Superhuman Pitching Machine Volume 1was about developing a pitcher specific power motor. In SH1 I unveiled the results of a 2 1/2 year research project to identify the 4 types of exercises necessary to build a powerful, athletic, explosive pitcher. I organized it into a 5 day workout plan you can perform on your own with virtually no equipment required.
Engineering The Superhuman Pitching Machine Volume 2 was a step-by-step common sense guide for conducting a world class pitcher assessment. In this book and video, I gave you an easy to use tool to assess a pitcher for physical and mechanical constraints.
Engineering The Superhuman Pitching Machine Volume 3 will give you 3-6 corrective drills and exercises to eliminate any of the constraints you found during the assessment. This product will go off to the printer this week and should be ready by the first of the year.
The process is really simple, but we had to crawl through a lot of complexity to get there.
This is how we do it at The ARMory
1) Build a pitcher-specific power athlete (Vol 1)
2) Assess for any physical or movement pattern constraints (Vol 2)
3) Target the training to carve away those constraints (Vol 3)
Then we sit back an watch the magic happen.
I am no longer surprised when one of our guys gains 5, 7, even 10 mph, or busts the 90mph threshold.
I am ALWAYS thrilled….no longer surprised.
OUR PROCESS WORKS….PERIOD! (and that’s not a presidential period).
About the Shotgun
Ryan’s relentless pursuit of a Christmas shotgun reminds me of my favorite Christmas movie of all time. I have a sneaking suspicion that when he asks his mom for the final approval, this may be the response he gets: (22 seconds)
Instead of a new firearm, why not give your pitcher the gift of a cannon for an arm!?
That’s the gift that will keep on giving!
Only a few spots left in our Dec 28th and 29th Rocket Launchers Training Camp Nearly $1000 of service for less than 1/3rd of that cost.
We have 12 confirmed and we cap it at 20, so don’t delay.
If you don’t leave feeling like it was the best gift you ever received, I’ll give you your money back in total with no questions asked.
Until next time,
