  1. if you're going to do the scapular load, be aware that people who do this have a history of arm problems. kerry wood, stephen strasburg are two good examples. I also believe Angels pitcher Garrett Richards is going to suffer arm problems just by looking at how he does that scapular loading thing. It causes so much stress on the shoulders and elbows.

  2. A scapular load is fine as long as you don't point you elbows up and pinch the muscles in your back and neck  The idea of the scapular load is to expand the upper chest muscles and use them in the throwing motion. Similar to a Roger Clemens.
