Ryu Hyun-jin (36, Toronto), who has been working hard on rehabilitation after elbow ligament reconstruction surgery (Tommy John surgery) last June, is digesting the long toss program recently. He throws a ball about once every two days. This is a step where you increase the distance and increase the intensity. His basic rehabilitation is over, and he has turned around and is now picking up the pace.
However, on the 21st (Korean time), something that did not suit Ryu Hyun-jin’s training program appeared. It was ‘Speed Gun’. Every time Ryu Hyun-jin throws a ball, he uses a speed gun to speed it up. Toronto coach Jang Se-hong, who is taking full care of Ryu Hyun-jin’s body, made the atmosphere not boring by shouting for restraint with his senses and comparing it with the actual speed gun.
Ryu Hyun-jin has just caught the ball, and there seemed to be no reason for a speed gun to appear. This is because at this stage, restraint has no special meaning. However, after hearing Ryu Hyun-jin’s explanation, I fully understood it. Ryu Hyun-jin said, “Now (measuring the restraint) is the period. I started measuring from today (the 21st),” he added, adding that it was a level of intensity control.
After a long period of rehabilitation, he feels good when he catches the ball. It’s important to keep him in a good mood, but if it leads to overexertion, the top of his efforts so far can be blown away in an instant. It is to measure the restraint to maintain the strength at this stage. On the 21st, he was usually in the low 50s and threw at a peak of 55 miles per hour. Be careful not to go beyond that.
This restraint limit rises little by little with each step. When it comes time to throw freely, that marks the end of the long toss program. The object that symbolizes Ryu Hyun-jin’s patience in rehabilitation is the speed gun. On the other hand, it can be seen as a symbol of hardship personally because you must not lie in front of this machine.메이저사이트
Wouldn’t it be greedy? Ryu Hyun-jin also explained, “Today was about 60%. I do about 60% for about two weeks,” and warned against excessive greed, saying, “I want to test once, but that’s the worst. It’s not yet that time. You have to slow down.” . I want to give more strength, but I am determined to look far ahead and take a step forward.
Fortunately, the rehabilitation process went smoothly. In the process of elbow rehabilitation, it is not uncommon to feel pain and return to the previous stage, but Ryu Hyun-jin has never had such a thing. This is thanks to her sincere and meticulous rehabilitation. Ryu Hyun-jin said, “I have to stay in this condition for another month. After that, I will do bullpen pitching.” After completing his mound, the next step is to return to the major leagues. Ryu Hyun-jin’s rehabilitation clock is running strong today.
