Nearly every baseball player no matter how old only has a few months left before their season starts up. Unfortunately for the majority of these athletes, they will actually start worrying about training to get ready for the season in January. I’ll never understand how someone can expect to prepare for a 4 to 8 month long season in just a month, but it seems to be the norm especially the higher up a player gets.

I’ve watched many high school, collegiate, and pro baseball players say they need to take 2-3 months off after the season to let their body recover, because last season really wore on them… This just starts a vicious cycle in which they continue to get weaker and more injury prone, because they have to rest and not train to get stronger and healthier.

Here is a short video of one of our pro baseball guys who wants to be different. He realized that these 2+ months are key in determining just how ready you are going to be for the next season, and he wants to make the most of it.

Ben just got back from a Fall Ball league in Arizona and just recently finished up his regular season with the Toledo Mud Hens the AAA affiliate for the Detroit Tigers. He knows that to make that next jump is going to take hard work and dedication and while everyone else is “resting and recovering”, he is busting it at the facility to get better.

Check out the video below of one of his upper body days and let me know what you think.

You will also notice just how much upper back work we are doing compared to pressing and chest work… That is because a good baseball player is built from the back first. At the facility we always get baseball guys who want to get better but always ask us when they can bench… Then it turns out they can’t even do a correct push-up or pull-up. Learn to move your body efficiently and you will become a better athlete.

Here is that video and please comment letting me know what you think.

In Strength,

DC
