Baseball puts tremendous strain on the arms, shoulders, back, hips, and legs. Hitting, fielding, catching, and pitching require flexibility, mobility, range of motion, and full body strength. Baseball players must prepare their bodies by stretching thoroughly on a regular basis for the many games played during the season. Baseball players are often injured because they fail to prepare their bodies for the intense movements endured during training and the season.
The Myosource Kinetic Bands are a great tool for baseball players to increase their flexibility by warming up, stretching, and practicing with resistance. There are many simple warm up exercises baseball players can do with the Myosource Kinetic Bands to thoroughly warm up before practicing or playing in a game.
Baseball Training Warm Up - Fielding
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.
Front, Side, and Back Lunges:
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.
Baseball Training Warm Up - Catching
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.
Baseball Training Warm Up - Hitting
The amount of upper body strength, hip rotation, and stability needed demands mobility and flexibility for powerful and consistent hitting.
Hip Flexor Stretch:
The Myosource Upper Body and Lower Body Resistance Bands benefit baseball players in warming up, stretching, and practicing to develop flexibility, mobility, strength, and quick muscle reactors. The Myosource Kinetic Bands allow baseball players to copy all of their movements and skills without limiting their abilities.
