Arm Pathway Training | The Water Bottle Drillby Austin Wasserman
The Water Bottle Drill is a great way to train Arm Pathway & Patterning for Baseball and Softball players that will help re-map and enhance an athlete’s understanding of arm pathway and arm shape with less resistance than an actual throw!
Less Resistance = Less Interference with your current throwing volume while enhancing the arm pattern!
How does this help coaches and athletes?
The Water Bottle Drill gives coaches a VISUAL CUE and athletes a KINESTHETIC AWARENESS of how the arm should move prior to ball release!
An efficient arm path will reduce the risk of shoulder and elbow stress by allowing the body to supply the force in a throw, not just the arm!
No more Wrist Flicks, “L-Drills” or Static Positions being taught! Find out how this drill teaches Movement THROUGH Positions for a fluid, seamless and effortless movement through ball release!
