Why do so many pitching coaches and websites focus on either throwing harder OR staying healthy?
Sure, each is important, but we tend to find that by focusing too much on either during training leads to poor outcomes.
To be clear, training to throw harder with no regard for arm fitness is a great way to increase your injury risk. You are layering stress on top of dysfunction.
Throwing with the intention to completely eliminate the risk of injury will down-regulate your effort, leading to little training gains and plateaus at your current level of performance.
Teaching athletes to throw harder while minimizing their injury risk is about improving your mechanical efficiency through smart training.
