Command (cont.)


There are numerous of pitching pads on the market.... all of them are sufficient in regards to providing a visual target for the pitcher to throw "at".  Pads and targets have been around for many years. They are sometimes called hard targets because the canvas upon which the targeting imagery is placed is a physical object. Pitchers are explicitly taught to throw at and hit specific locations on that hard target. This type of target practice provides a certain type of spatial information that can't be used by the pitchers brain for spatial learning or performance enhancement simply because the target being used originated from outside the pitchers body and brain.  In essence, it exists in solid form and therefore can't exist in "potential" or pre-emergent form.   

Because of the explicit nature of hard targets instructors often require pitchers to imagine or mentally visualize spaces and locations during bullpen sessions.     This form of target training is also based on a false premise and inflates false positive practice data that results in inconsistent learning throughout the skill acquisition process.   Pitchers see the target extremely well but have little or no awareness of the space within the training environment. 

Creating an efficient path of discovery for the pitchers brain to learn spatially requires special attention to the canvas structure itself.  First and foremost, the target canvas must originate inside the brain, which means that it can't appear on the retina of the eye and has to be an absolute neurological location that emerges from negative space within the brain. Using "space" itself as the targeting canvas ensures acceptance by the brain and a singularity coefficient that results in consistent improvements in strike command and efficiency.  

The visual prompts used by V-Flex trainees are easy to use and maximize the available space within the pitchers receptive field.  They provide the pitchers brain a continual flow of emergent information necessary for materializing spaces that correlates to faster learning and ocular/motor processing. 

The PXB-3 is designed to prompt a pitcher's brain to make different variations of the strike zone while the PXB-5,7 recruit additional spatial neurons to enhance the neurological space between the mound and home plate.   By doing so, pitchers not only develop command of their pitches, they also develop their efficiency of throwing each pitch for a strike! By enhancing the space the strike zone exists in, you'll see a rapid growth in your pitchers ability to not only throw strikes, but throw balls that appear as strikes! You'll be thoroughly pleased with the results of implicitly training on V-Flex!
