While sitting my backyard, my Dad and I decided to go ahead and begin to start drawing up my outline for my Senior Project. I wanted to have this finished before I went to go meet with my project facilitator so I could let her know of everything that I have planned for my project.
I know that you are not supposed to get help from your parents but I thought that it would be helpful to get started with my outline with my Dad because he is an ex physical therapist, and my project facilitator is a working physical therapist at one of the clinics my dad owns. And I thought it would be good to get him to help me write it up before going to meet with her. It worked out and finished with no errors before the meeting.
This is my Dad and I sitting outside in the backyard drawing up all of the details of my project onto one document, my outline.
Wednesday, January 4th, 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm
This is when I was able to meet with my new project facilitator, Nicole, the clinic director of the Woodstock Benchmark clinic. We met in the clinic and had a great meeting.
This was a very good meeting between Nicole and I. We spoke about my outline that I put together, and she gave me some more advice from a medical standpoint of things that I need to do and make sure of. Thanks to Nicole and this meeting we got everything set up and going smoothly. She also gave me some good measurement tools and other workout equipment.

This is when my client, Dane, and I are at Georgia Pitching Academy taking the first set of measurements before he began his arm workout program. We also went and a good workout working on mechanics.
It was a successful measurement taking day. We got all of the measurements that Nicole and I agreed would be good to track throughout the 8 weeks. Some of these include- velocity, strike to ball ratio with each pitch, shoulder, forearm, and bicep strength, and a few others. Along with taking these measurements, Dane got a good workout with our team’s professional pitching instructor.
This is an action shot of Dane throwing one of his pitches and me in the background to help him out.
Monday, January 27th, 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm
This is the first day that Dane began his arm workout program. I went over there to watch him do it and answer any questions.
Nicole, my PF, recommended that I go and be with Dane once a week and oversee his workouts to make sure he is doing everything correctly and to be there for him if there are any questions.
This is Dane doing the workout for the first time and me there to show him the process and answer questions.
Sunday, February 5th, 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm,
Here’s Dane and I at Fury Performance Center. After a team workout, Dane did his program at the facility, and then when he was finished we took midpoint measurements.
After her completed his first set of 4 weeks of working out with this program, we took measurements to show and to track his growth throughout the first 4 weeks. During my research I found that there isn’t much major muscle growth until after 6 weeks, but we was showing some progress. Taking some muscle strength tests from 3 out of 5’s to 4 out of 5’s .
Dane and I are resting after a long and tough workout. I did the workout alongside of him from time to time. This is right after we got the middle set of measurements.
Tuesday, February 7th, 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm,
1 hour and 30 minutes
Here, Nicole and I are meeting for the second part of the program. We completed the first stage or the first 4 weeks and I shared the results and told her about his progress.
Nicole thought that we were on the right track and that we should continue what we were doing. She added some changes however. She gave me a new resistance band to give to Dane for his arm exercises, and told me to make a judgement call on some of the number of reps for the easier exercises.

Thursday, February 9th, 5:00 pm- 7:00 pm,
This is after the first four weeks of the program was over and I met with Dane like I always did, but this time I changed up some things for the second set of 4 weeks. Then he completed his new workout.
Some of the new things that I incorporated was a new and higher resistance band for his shoulder and arm exercises, and for some of the lower rep exercises, I added a few more reps to each set.
This is Dane, after four weeks of doing the first part of the program, doing the new and improved second portion of the program.
Monday, February 13th, 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm,
Dane doing his workout of the 6th week of the program. Here he is working biceps, doing curls with 15 lb dumbbells.
This exercise is working his arms and making them stronger. This will eventually help his arm health, and help him go stronger and longer into games in the middle of the summer season.
Dane working out like a beast, doing some bicep curls!
Thursday, February 16th, 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm,
Here, Dane is on the mound at Fury Performance Center, throwing some pitches and staying loose and ready for the up and coming season.
Some times when the team would get together, I would get Dane to get on the mound and have him throw 10-15 pitches just to have his arm staying loose throughout the process.
Dane is back on the hill throwing some pitches and staying consistent as always.
Wednesday, February 22nd, 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm,
Here is Dane getting some more work on the mound and keeping his arm loose. During this bullpen we worked with a batter in the box to get him ready for real game situations.
Again, some of the studies said that it was alright for the pitcher to throw while doing this program. It helps get some of the built up acid in the elbow out, and also helps with muscle growth. Also not to mention it helps the pitcher’s arm to be more healthy than if he were not to be throwing during the 8 week process. He’s working with a batter and throwing all pitches and working on location and hitting spots.

Saturday, February 25th, 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm,
Along with all of the other workouts that Dane did, that was not logged in this, this is the last workout that Dane did. I decided to log only the important workouts that Dane did.
After Dane did his last exercise of his last workout of the program, I was there to celebrate his completion and to congratulate and thank him for his hard work and help. He was extremely happy that he was done along with excited and eager to get out of the diamond to see some results.
Here Dane and I are upstairs doing the last workout of the 8 week program.
Tuesday, February 28th, 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm,
This is Dane and I in the parking lot at East Cobb Baseball Facility, taking his last and final measurements after he completed the program days before.
At this point, we gathered all of the same measurements that we have been collecting throughout the 8 weeks like muscle strength, grip strength, velocity, strike to ball ratio, and others. It was kind of a sigh of relief when we got the final measurement because we knew it was over.
Here I am measuring Dane’s final grip strength test.

I went to the local Benchmark PT clinic here in Woodstock to meet with my facilitator, Nicole, as we discussed the end results of Dane’s progress and the program as a whole.
Nicole was very proud of the work that I did and she was thankful that I chose her to be my facilitator. We sat down and looked at the end results as well as overall progress throughout the 8 weeks and talked about some of the highlights as well as some of the downfalls and overcoming of those. I am thankful for her and her help to this project.
