Workload Management: What, Why, and How

With all of the advancements finally being made on player development, it’s important to note that development in its maximal capacity is only possible with maximal arm health (and body health in general). While a lot goes into arm health specifically, I believe that workload management, or a lack thereof, is one of the primary causes of arm injuries in pitchers. Simply monitoring how much and when an athlete is throwing, both over time and in the present, can significantly decrease risk. Spikes in throwing load or a significant decrease in throwing load can be detrimental to throwing athletes.
