Baseball puts tremendous strain on the arms, shoulders, back, hips, and legs. Hitting, fielding, catching, and pitching require flexibility, mobility, 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 they endure 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 their entire body is completely warmed up prior to practicing and playing to prevent injury. This helps them move in the demanding ways that fielding requires.
Front, Side, and back lunges:
Pitching can put a lot of strain on a baseball players arm and shoulder. Stretching is vitally important for a pitcher to stay healthy and maintain mobility in their arms. Pitching requires extreme flexibility in the arms and shoulders.
Basic Arm Stretch:
Baseball Training Warm Up - Catching
A baseball catcher’s thighs, hips, glutes, and back take a great amount of abuse because they spend much of their time in a squatting position or performing vigorous up and down movements. Catchers need to warm up their entire body in order to have the mobility and flexibility they need to last through 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
Baseball players will play both offense and defense, requiring the necessary warm ups to be performed in order to hit properly as well as field, catch, or pitch. 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.
