Crossover Long Toss Program

The Crossover Long Toss Program helps the baseball player to build strength, health and longevity of the arm. The long toss throwing program is used by professional and college teams. 

"The ultimate goal of the Crossover Long Toss Program is to maintain arm health while building a strong foundation in the pre-season. This is accomplished by gradually increasing throwing workloads, which will help to reduce recovery times during the season. By reducing recovery times, pitchers can start post outing workouts sooner, allowing for an additional long toss session and/or bullpen to fine tune mechanics and pitches prior to their next outing. Position players can benefit from building a strong foundation in the pre-season, just as pitchers do, as well as refine their fundamentals with position specific drills. 

One of the unique features of this program is the application of Crossover Super Sets. This method alternates three sets of the Crossover Symmetry workout with two sets of the throwing program, building power and endurance to better prepare players for the heavy workloads that they will encounter during the season."


Note: My ambidextrous son started this long toss program this fall and it seams straight forward. The warmup exercises take about 5 minutes to complete.
