Baseball

Baseball is predicated on power. A quick first step will mean a stolen base. Explosive rotational power takes that inside fastball over the fence.  Our baseball players receive advanced training that directly translates to the diamond.

Rotational Power Development:

  1. 1. Maximize player’s power output through explosive movements, especially medicine ball rotational power exercises.
  2. 2. Exercises have a strong correlation to on-field performance as seen in the swinging and throwing motions.

Reactive Training:

  1. 1. Improve the baseball player’s range in the field, their jumps when baserunning and their foot speed through reactive training exercises like hurdle hops and skater hops.
  2. 2. Improved agility and explosiveness through increased force production.

Strength and Injury Prevention:

  1. 1. Baseball is a very unique game that has the most violent action in sports: the overhead throwing motion.
  2. 2. We strive to protect and strengthen the athlete’s shoulder and have weighed the risks and benefits of all exercises in regards to shoulder health
  3. 3. Therefore, our baseball players do not perform many of the bench press variations and overhead lifting.
  4. 4. Any pressing movements that are prescribed have been altered to ensure the safety of the shoulder.

Conditioning:

  1. 1. There is no long distance running for our baseball players.
  2. 2. Antiquated thinking that players should run long distance is not supported by the speed of the game.
  3. 3. Sprints are prescribed to improve players’ metabolic conditioning.
