Baseball Specific Training

Want to lift like a baseball player?

Great!

What does that look like?

Is it just modified baseball drills done with weight?

Kind of like those videos you see of a guy with a baseball bat that he attached to a cable stack and works on his swinging muscles?

No…..please, PLEASE, no.

Baseball specific training looks like all other training. The difference? We are going to exclude some exercises from our arsenal and prioritize others.

We will deadlift, squat, pull and push. We are going to do core training and power training. We will work on speed and movement skills, and we are going to condition the best way each athlete needs.

That is just good training for every sport though!

So next time when you are wondering if what you are doing is right for you, check back here and look at how our guys train. That’s baseball specific training at its best.
