Baseball Training

Baseball training is a combination of baseball strength training along with addressing the mechanical demands of your position.  Think about it, if you’re a position player, you only get 3-5 at bats per game and if you’re a really good hitter you’ll only get on base once or twice.  

What if you’re a pitcher?  If you’re a starting pitcher you’re on the mound about every 15 minutes, throwing 15-30 pitches an inning for typically 5-7 innings. In-between each of those innings you’re taking a 15 minute break, just sitting on the bench.  

Therefore, training baseball players largely depends on a few things; your positional demands, whether it’s in-season or off-season, what your daily schedule is and how many games you’re playing that week.  These will all need to be considered when developing a baseball fitness training program to increase your performance.

Here’s the problem with following a one size fits all program or copying a program from a book or social media.  Those people don’t know YOU.  Not to mention, they don’t know what your needs are or what is going to make YOU a better player.

If you really want to take your performance to the next level, you need a personalized baseball workout program catered to your goals and your physical demands.  So, the first step to developing that is to understand your physical capabilities by performing a physical movement screen….so let’s get started!

Baseball Movement Screen

As a strength and conditioning coach in baseball for 12 years, I have performed thousands of baseball movement screens on players. For any athlete, a movement screen is a critical first step to providing a baseball training program that works specifically for them.

An OnBaseU movement screen uses a joint-by-joint approach to assess your mobility and stability to pin-point the areas that can be improved to increase performance and decrease the risk for injury.

The screen consists of 12 movement tests that are quick, simple and can completed with just a baseball bat and a chair. Each baseball fitness training program comes with a complete movement assessment so that your program is tailored to you.

But first, let me show you how it works.

I bet you can relate to at least one of these…

      3D Baseball Swing Analysis

      K-Motion 3D Biofeedback

      Once you have an understanding of your physical capabilities then you can start analyzing the mechanical components of your baseball swing.  The K-Motion 3D biofeedback evaluation is a training technology that uses 4 sensors (pelvis, upper body, lead arm, and lead wrist) to analyze your swing.  The sensors provide objective data related to the following areas.

      A swing evaluation takes away the guessing and provides real-time feedback on each swing you perform.  Each swing generates a report providing you with how you performed, how you compare to your peers, and how you stack up with the pros!  

      Don’t be concerned with the wealth of information.  All that data paints a brighter picture of where you are with your swing.

      Currently in professional baseball, 23 of the 30 Major League teams use K-Motion to assess their players.  If improving your performance in the box is a priority then this evaluation is a must!
