Première phrase
When I signed back in 1965, the standard approach to training for pitching was quite simple: Just throw off a mound, do some sprints, and you're all set. Lire la première page

Not much on pitching!!!!! 2 octobre 2006
Par Nick R. - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Well this was a severe disappointment. I was expecting some insight on his mechanics, going into grave detail... The information on pitching form was extremely generic and repetitive. There is absolutely no unique insight that you couldn't get from using an internet search engine. It all comes down to this: keep your weight back during the leg kick (don't move forward), and then have a controlled fall towards the plate. Thats about it. Chapter 1 was fluff about his career and Ryan's various coaches, chapter 2 was mostly fluff about mental attitude, and chapter 3 was the only instruction on how to properly throw the baseball.

The rest of the chapters were just an "introduction to weight lifting and stretching". Chapter after chapter of what weights to lift, and how to lift them. Don't get me wrong, it isn't bad weight training information... but there are far better weight training books out there and the excercises are not really unique to baseball or pitching. Generic normal excercises, like the ones you'd find in any weight training book (there are only so many ways you can lift a dumbell).

I was looking to the book for some deeper insight into mechanics, and maybe some more illustration of ryans form. I wanted to dissect his delivery, and see how his pitching style differed from my own. The book did not deliver.

To those other reviews that claim conditioning is the reason ryan was so successful... I'd say you are partially right. Conditioning is important. Its also very basic. I don't need a book telling me how to do squats or shoulder presses. The act of throwing the baseball, on the other hand, is extremely complicated. This is where you need the most information...

This is not an "ultimate guide" to anything. I wouldn't even reccomend this book to a novice since its so incredibly vague that the information probably wouldn't be clear to them. There are several superior *free* resources on the internet that can be found using your favorite search engine. Some come equipped with free videos and all.

Bottom line: this book was a waste of time

The best book on pitching I have read 5 août 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Nolan breaks down his book into mechanics and training in a very readable format. The critics who said that the book focuses too much on conditioning and not enough on pitching secrets are missing the boat: CONDITIONING IS HIS PITCHING SECRET. How else did he last 27 years?

Pretty good 1 décembre 2011

I honestly was hoping for a little more. Specifics about pitching motion were not as prevalent as I hoped. There was a lot of good information about Nolan Ryan, how he trained, how he thought etc. This was very interesting, but not what I was expecting. There was a lot of information on Nolan Ryan's work out habits and nutrition. Again, it was interesting, but just not what I was hoping. I was thinking that it would have more details on the pitching motion, holding the ball etc. This book was almost more of a Nolan Ryan biography.

Too much conditioning, not enough on how to pitch 30 août 1997
Par S. Stanley - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I thought too much of this focused on the conditioning and strength-building aspects of Ryan's approach to pitching, and far too little on the mechanics of pitching, which would be more helpful for younger players

If You're Interested in Pitching, or Just a Fan... 10 février 2013

This book will make you a Ryan fan if you're not already. Genetics alone don't explain why the greatest flame-thrower of all time was very rarely injured over his amazing 27-year career; more on this below. We all know about the Ryan Express's seven no-hitters, twelve one-hitters, and nobody-else-even-close 5714 strikeouts. Ryan also set the career record for walks, but in any given season if a pitcher with an ERA below 4.00 is having a good year, then Ryan's career ERA of 3.19 was stellar. (If only he had decent run support over the years, who knows how many more wins he would have had on top of the 324 he recorded. But enough on that; I'm an unapologetic fan.) What makes this book interesting and valuable is how Ryan explains his journey from being a young pitcher during the dark ages (my term) when nobody knew how to train pitchers for durability and to prevent injury -- in fact, teams cracked down on pitchers venturing into a weight room -- to the model of sound mechanics and fitness for which he became known. Along with relaying how he traveled this journey, Ryan passes on to the reader the pointers and lessons he learned along the way. Pitching guru Tom House also has several passages in this book and it is clear Ryan holds House in high regard. The combined instruction and insight which they relay, along some very good photographs and illustrations, contain many "lightbulb moments" for the reader. Remembering Ryan pitch (the high leg kick, the audible "grunt", the awesome drive and finish with his lower body), it was a thing of beauty. But I wish I had this book in my own youth because it breaks down and distills the many separate moving parts of Ryan's great form. My 13 year-old son is now learning how to pitch and we've found this book not a moment too soon.

In the chapter on weight-training, just a few of the excersises might seem a bit dated at first glance (along with the vintage early-1980's equipment). But the purpose of virtually all of the excercises remains sound. Some might quibble with, say, the need for a pitcher to bench press. But Ryan is merely explaining what his own training regimen was without making any claims that his way is the ONLY way. Like all advice, the reader should consider what is presented thoughtfully then take that which he finds useful. I'm certain the reader will find far more of Ryan's lessons useful than not. I am equally sure the reader will appreciate Ryan sharing what was going on in his mind in various situations. The man was / is a fierce competitor and it never hurts to gain whatever insight one can from such an elite and successful individual.
