Under Coach Johnson's tutelage, six Vanderbilt pitchers have been drafted in the first round, including David Price who was taken by the Tampa Bay Rays as the first pick of the first round in 2007.
How can you develop arm strength and improve throwing mechanics while preventing injury? In this lecture-style presentation, 2004 National Pitching Coach of the Year Derek Johnson reveals his three throwing programs and how to prepares his pitchers to throw in practice.
Coach Johnson takes you through a step-by-step look at Vanderbilt's complete throwing preparation program, accompanied by a video explanation of each exercise. Johnson shows you cross symmetry and the two levels you should always work, along with exercises for each level to get you properly started. He then goes over foam rolling exercises which help muscles recover, improve mobility and reduce aches and pain from competition.
You will learn 10 stretches that every Vanderbilt pitcher does before throwing, including `No Money' and a martial arts inspired move called Tea Cups. He shows you the exact mechanics of each stretch including how to do the stretch correctly vs. incorrectly. Additionally, coach Johnson discusses common arm injuries and gives you certain stretches that will help prevent such injuries.
Open up Coach Johnson's `tool shed' and choose from a variety of quick feet and mobility drills to finish your warm-ups.
Along with video examples, Johnson explains the three types of throwing, how to approach each session, and he even gives you exact distances, times, and tips on how to get a stronger arm and become a better pitcher through specific throwing drills. The easy long toss program is used to stretch out and massage the arm. The long toss program is used to increase arm strength. Coach Johnson also introduces you to "compression throwing" for developing velocity and Vanderbilt's skill work done at the end of each throwing program.
Working from initial catch play, through focused and purposeful long toss, back to compression throws (maintaining your long toss effort, but compressing it into 60'6"), Coach Johnson's proven approach will not only help you or your pitchers gain arm strength and arm speed, it will also improve all aspects of being a pitcher.
Add this warm-up and throwing routine to you program and see immediate gains in the health and development of your pitchers.

Enjoyed this DVD ... picked up a few key pointers for my pitchers. Like the stretches, the game prep parts especially.
I am not very satisfied with D. Johnsons Complete Daily Throwing Program. This DVD was advertised as COMPLETE THROWING PROGRAM and in fact it provides very little visual demonstration of what they are actually doing. Coach Johnson does a good job explaining what they do and implies theres more detailed visual explanation at the end of the DVD. The visual depiction of the exercises they are performing is extremely weak. The way he talks one expects to see first-hand q complete detail viewing of each item instead we get just a glimpse of the things he is discussing. I would not recommend this DVD to any of the 250 students nor their parents or coaches I deal with on a weekly basis. When something is advertised as COMPLETE it should be in fact complete. Thank You for allowing me to provide some feedback.
