What's In HTKC?

Hacking the Kinetic Chain cuts the learning curve for coaching by providing coaches year-round programming to develop their pitchers. The training manual and video library create an integrated guide to developing a pitcher on the mound and in the weight room.

There are always many options on how to program players. When just getting started, all the options and choices can seem overwhelming.
