Picthers play an important role in softball, especially when defending. Pitching is a high explosive motion involving both smooth and big muscles especially an upper limb. This study aimed to acquire data and empirical proof of muscle performance on learning softball pitching based on science through electromyography (EMG) sensor approach. The research method used in this study is descriptive quantitative with analytical survey. The sampling technique employed in this study is saturated sampling since the sample is all the population which are all members of UPI students’ softball club. The results of the data analysis show that the muscle performance included the upper body (34% pectoral, 28% bicepes, 17% deltoid, 14% latisimus dorsi, and 6% triceps), and lower body (42% hamstring, 23% outer quadriceps, 19% inner quadriceps, and 16% glute) for the first session. For the second session, the results of the upper body are 34% pectoral, 31% biceps, 15% deltoid, 14% latisimus dorsi, and 6% triceps and those of the lower body are 41% hamstring, 25% quadricpes, 20% inner quadriceps, and 14% glute. Based on the results, it can be concluded that pitching learning have the most impact on pectoral and hamstring muscles.
