Eliminate pain, prevent injury and optimise performance in baseball with Crossover Symmetry.
INCREASE VELOCITY AND PROTECT YOUR ARM
Baseball has very specific skill requirements that take years of repetition, training and coaching to master. However, before the sport specific movements of the arm can be mastered, the stability, mobility and motor control of the shoulder complex need to be addressed to form the foundation of shoulder function.
With a solid foundation of the shoulder these skilled movements can be optimised by allowing a more effective transfer of energy from the legs/core to the arm. This is vital if you are looking to prevent injury and increase velocity.
The Crossover Symmetry Shoulder System has been designed exactly for this reason, to provide a time efficient systemised approach to arm care that includes the training and equipment to develop the stability, mobility and motor control of the shoulder.
Learn more about how the Crossover Symmetry Shoulder System works to replace pain with performance.
“The single most important tool I use is the Crossover Symmetry System. Our pitchers love the advanced activation program and are able to maintain their velocity (most improve their velocity) throughout the course of the season. Equally as important, there is a significant improvement in our pitcher’s recovery time when doing the crossover workout after their outings. … I consider the Arizona Training Arsenal ™ the most sought after thrower’s training curriculum in all of baseball and Crossover Symmetry is the foundation of our arm care education.”

Too often arm care programs create no physiological change. It’s either a waste of of time with the cover of doing something significant, or not comprehensive enough to cover every need of the arm.
Stop wasting time, instead optimize performance and provide superior protection against injury with the new prescription for arm care.
The emphasis given to strengthening the scapular muscles in throwing athletes is under-valued and immensely under-addressed.
Learn how the scapular stabilizing muscles control the position and movement of the scapula which are vital to arm health and performance.

Are we able to predict arm injuries before they occur? Turns out, we might be able to. A 5-year MLB Study concluded that Preseason weakness of External Rotation and Supraspinatus strength is a predictor of in-season throwing-related injury.
“30% of coaches, 51% of players, and 37% of parents believe Tommy John surgery should be performed in the absence of elbow injury to enhance performance” (Ahmad, et al.)
But you can actually get all the same gains faster by doing this instead.
After testing the arm health of 73 elite high school baseball players – what you do this off-season may need to change.
The findings show a common underlying arm issue that leads to increase risk of injury and robs you of velocity.
Here is how to fix it this off-season.
The power of arm care is incredibly understated simply because it’s done so poorly. An effective system doesn’t just “loosen up” the arm before games, but rather it should be a daily ritual of repair, development, and maintenance around the entire shoulder complex.
At first glance, the Crossover Symmetry System seems to be a very straightforward program for strengthening weak muscles of the shoulder. The simple theory that a weak shoulder leads to a painful shoulder is easy enough to understand and generally holds some truth…
As athletic trainers, we need to take the lead in the implementation of preventative and corrective exercise with our athletes. Too many times, we sit back and pretend that we do not see the problem right in front of our face…
