💥THE 100MPH FORMULA💥
The #100mphformula is something I get asked about daily. I honestly don’t know if it exists. Too many anatomical and genetic factors that we can’t influence, but I will say that we have many athletes making hard strides to hitting all of the above metrics.
I have come to the conclusion on these numbers based on thousands of baseball players testing the #90mphformula, our performance tests with weighted balls/sprinting/plyometrics, and most importantly injury prevention metrics that show a huge correlation to keeping our guys healthy. These numbers are for the elite. For most, these numbers are unattainable and unrealistic.
For the majority of you, I’d like you to think of these as targets to balance out your training. If one metric is on point (say bw or deadlift) and another is poor (say chin-ups or reverse lunges) then you are increasing your risk for injury AND leaving velocity on the table. Structural balance is key. I’d rather see a 2x bw reverse lunge + deadlift + 10 bw chin-ups than just having a great dead and chin-up.
The 90MPH formula has proven to be highly accurate in predicting limitations that decrease velocity and increase injury risks. The metrics of the formula are attainable for most high school baseball players, let alone college or pro athletes. One metric I would change from this image is the bodyweight chin-ups to 13, not 10. We have found that 13 correlated better to UCL injury reduction.
As always, I believe movement quality should be prioritized over strength. An issue I’m seeing more of with the information we are sharing is that people take the numbers as gospel and just destroy themselves with poor movement training. If you are practicing a lunge with 💩 form, don’t expect your throwing or running mechanics to be anything but 💩.
PS Enjoy the hate that will follow in the comments from people who look at the picture and refuse to read this portion of the post to gain context of the information I’m presenting. 😂
90mph...the magic number everybody wants to throw. The work ethic needed to achieve this is something serious. You will never be handed velocity, but we can show you the steps to get closer- and do it in a healthy manner. When you’re ready to take the next step shoot us a DM and let us know- we’ll be happy to guide you to throwing harder than you ever have before! #90mphclub

I get constant messages that ask “how many times a week do I do the #90mphformula?”. The formula is our gauge to validate your progress with the metrics. This is a test, not the way we train.
Attached is a simple 3x a week program that will give you an idea of how we may set-up a phase of training for an athlete based on their needs.
Spring Training OTW🏃🏾♂️ #indyball#independentleague#mlb#milb#atlanta#baseball#training#trapbar#redan#lilburn#stonemountain#newyork#newjersey#delaware#pitching#pitchingmechanics#massequalsgas#90mphclub
This kid is a DUDE 💪🏻 @ohjiromotoki sat 89-90 / 91 🔥🔥🔥 going the distance throwing a NO HITTER in Cresskill’s opening round WIN in the NJ State Tournament
Last pitch of the game was 91mph - really impressive! Also showed high level pitchability with CB (77-80) and CH (77). Excited to see him with @hpu_baseball next year. Future is real bright ⭐️ for this kid 🔹🙅🏻♂️🔹
‼️🚨Sleeper Saturdays🚨‼️ Byron Buxton
The former second overall pick of the Minnesota twins in 2012 centerfielder Byron Buxton was highly touted for that draft and had a serious chance at going 1-1. Buxton has shown success in the minors but has yet to put it together at the MLB level. Could that change? “Bux” has always had elite speed, grading in the 100th percentile rated as the fasted player in the MLB but could never find his way on base to use his speed. This year Byron has doubled his walk total from last year to 6.8% and struck out 5.5% less (23.3%.) He has also increased his hard hit rate to 43.6% based off Statcast and has increased his exit velocity 6mph to 91.7mph and his launch angle 7.5 degrees for 20.2 degrees. He has also seen his barrelled ball percentage increase by 7.3% to a tick under 9%. The speed has always been there, but it seems that in the first quarter of the season Buxton has figured it out at the plate. We may finally see the true potential of Byron Buxton and should be considered a sleeper outfielder with potential to be an all star this season.

‼️🚨Fantasy Friday’s🚨‼️ Chris Davis
The Baltimore Orioles first baseman has been the laughingstock of the MLB for the better part of two seasons with his terrible abilities at the plate. He consistently strikes out a ton and rarely makes contact. His last good season was in 2016 when he compiled 99r, 38hrs, 84rbi, and a .791 OPS. This year “Crush” started off what seemed to be terribly going 0-54…..but was it really that bad? Chris Davis has a soft hit % of 9.2%; which is his lowest since 2015 when he hit 47 home runs and 117rbi. He has cut down on his strike outs by 2.3% from last year and nearly 3% from the year before; although it still stands at a lofty 34.5%. Chris is also walking 1.3% points more than last year at now a respectable 9.2%. His barrelled ball percentage is at 13.8% and exit velocity at 90.5mph, the highest they’ve been since 2016. Based off Statcast Crush is hitting baseballs hard at a 47.7% clip which would be his highest marks of the Statcast era (2015-present.) Should we expect a resurgence to the Chris Davis of 2012-2016? I would say no, because I do not see him walking as much as he used to, but I do not see a reason for him not to get back up to those power numbers from those years. Chris Davis is rostered in only 1.5% of ESPN leagues so keep an eye out on a low risk high reward player like Crush. If you do not wish to add then he is a certain “flag” or a person to keep an eye on.
