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.
