RESULTS AND TESTIMONIALS
One Athlete’s Journey
from 83 to 90.6mph as a high school senior
Alex began training with us during the summer heading into his senior year of high school. At that point his best mound velocity in training was 83mph and his best game velocity was 86mph. Alex was already pretty strong and very athletic so throwing and more targeted weight room interventions have been key.
On the throwing side Alex needed to improve the ability to utilize his pec and arm swing. His pec and shoulder were pretty locked up so targeted soft tissue and mobility work has been a focus and will continue to be moving forward. In terms of throwing, getting a feel for relaxing into deep retraction/horizontal abduction and pulling the arm through were trained without an arm swing and gradually layering complexity. Then figure 8 arm swings were added to improve the rhythm of his arm swing.
On the general side Alex’s strength was already pretty solid so power and speed have been more of a focus and here are a few of his measurables.
Plyo Push-Ups: +5”
Med Ball Shot Put (10lb): +2.5mph
Lateral Bound: +6”
RSI: 1.83 to 3.05
Alex continues to improve and will be very fun to watch as he continues his career at Towson University!
from not pitching for two years
to 89 mph on the mound
Sophomore at the University of Milwaukee
Before working with Tyler, I had 4 years of tricep issues and was just coming off of Tommy John. After being stuck with injuries and thinking about quitting, I contacted Tyler for the first time. In a matter of months, he solved all the pain in my motion, increased my velocity by over 5 mph, and I am now looking forward to the first healthy season in a very long time. Tyler really knows how to break down your motion and identify the key parts for improvement and have very effective methods for improving them.
increased his mound velocity from 86 to 93
When I came to TAP, I was coming off labrum tear rehab and wasn’t sure if I would ever get back to throwing at high intensities. After addressing my own personal limitations, like subpar power numbers and mechanical flaws, I went from 81-84 t86 to 88-92 t93 in about nine months. I cannot recommend Tyler enough for the serious athlete who is willing to do whatever it takes to reach their goals. Whether you have years of experience or are just getting started, his individual specific programming takes the guessing out of training; all that’s left is for you to put in the work.
increased his mound velocity from 86 last season to 93 this fall (Update: Up to 95 mph during the season)
Deciding to work with Tyler is single-handedly one of the best decisions I have made in my career. The knowledge and progress I have made in a short amount of time is second to none. The program itself is very detailed individually, which is why myself and others have seen major progress. Without Tyler I would not be in the shape I am today. Anybody in the game of baseball looking to take your game to the next level, Tyler is your guy.
from 74 to 87mph
Hayden Hair began training with us during his sophomore year of high school, throwing 74mph on the mound. By the time his junior season started he was throwing 85mph in training and 87mph in games.
On the mechanical side we focused on holding external rotation and abduction longer in the rear hip as well as getting his elbow flexion angle to be a bit more acute heading into layback.
On the general side, Hayden has improved his strength and bodyweight by huge amounts:
Trap Bar Deadlift 3RM: +130lbs
Supine Lat Throw Distance (6lb): +25%
He’ll be exciting to watch as he continues his career at Delaware State!
increased his outfield velocity from 78 to 91
Tyler put together a comprehensive training plan for me and during the offseason I added 50 lbs to my front squat, 70 lbs to my deadlift, and 30 lbs to my DB bench press. As an outfielder I needed to improve my arm strength and during the offseason my crow hop velocity went from 78mph to 91mph! I’m happy to recommend Tyler to any baseball players looking to take their career as far as they can!
his son Jack increased his mound velocity from 86 to 92
and committed to San Jacinto Community College
Once my son made the commitment to maximize his “off the field” efforts, Tyler was a great fit. Tyler always makes time to talk with him and answer any questions ASAP. He’s very knowledgeable, and is always looking for ways to better his understanding of training. His programming is extremely detailed, and takes the guesswork out of training. My son knows that if he masters the program and applies maximum effort to his training, he will get better.
increased his mound velocity from 83 to 91
Tyler is the best trainer I have ever worked with. Even though I was doing remote training, he was always making sure how things were going with my training and making sure I was doing everything correctly. Tyler was able to help me crush all the goals that we had set for myself. If I was to recommend remote training to anyone, I would send them to Tyler Anzmann. The guy has some serious knowledge and is a great guy.
Diligence Pays Off
from 72 to 91mph
Jack began training after his freshman year of high school with a fastball near 70mph. Over the years Jack has been extremely consistent and diligent and has made numerous significant changes to his pitching delivery.
Among them he has improved a low elbow-his elbow was well below shoulder height at foot strike and did not allow him to utilize his pec. He then improved his ability to hold external rotation and abduction in his rear hip. His contralateral tilt was extreme and he has dialed that in as well. Finally, he’s currently working to improve the timing of his elbow extension as it currently happens a bit early.
Over this time Jack has seen steady improvements in throwing velocity, reaching 91mph this fall! He is doing great as a two-way player at Cal Tech!
