Baseball infielders and outfielders move in a variety of directions and body positions, making it important that the entire body is completely warmed up prior to practicing and playing to prevent injury.
Pitching can put a lot of strain on a baseball player's arm and shoulder and requires extreme flexilibility. Stretching is important for a pitcher to stay healthy and maintain mobility throughout the upper body.
A baseball catcher's thighs, hips, glutes, and back take a great amount of abuse because much of their time is spent in a squatting position or performing vigorous up and down movements. Catchers need to warm up the entire body in order to have the mobility and flexibility needed to last an entire game. The hamstrings need an extreme amount of stretching because they are the foundation for the catcher’s weight while squatting. A cramp or pulled hamstring can immediately hinder a catcher’s ability.
The amount of upper body strength, hip rotation, and stability needed demands mobility and flexibility for powerful and consistent hitting.
Using resistance bands like the Myosource Kinetic Bands benefit baseball players in warming up, stretching, and practicing to develop flexibility, mobility, strength, and quick muscle reactors. Myosource Kinetic Bands allow baseball players to copy all of their movements and skills without limiting their abilities
