Body Loading refers to the method the best and most durable pitchers employ to load and throw the baseball; with their entire bodies and not just their arms.
How they move athletically.
Body Loading contrasts with popular but problematic ideas like Scap Loading and staying Stacked or Stack & Track.
Body Loading in Pitching
When it comes to Loading and creating velocity, Scap Loading works, but it's not what the best pitchers do.
So what DO they do?
How do they create Resistance and Separation and move Efficiently?
I first started to get the sense that the emperor had no clothes when I looked at this 2012 clip of Justin Verlander.
What I noticed was what Justin Verlander's Scaps were doing.
Which was nothing.
It then advanced with my efforts to maximize my younger son's velocity, but with the knowledge that Justin Verlander did NOT Scap Load.
So what DID Verlander do?
This Verlander clip gave me some important information...
...and led me to this picture of Jim Palmer that changed EVERYTHING I thought I knew about Loading and creating Separation.
Eventually, I saw it.
Thanks to this clip.
Notice how Nolan Ryan loads, and throws with, his entire body.
