Resistance Training Helps...
Improve Baseball Fielding
Successful infielders and outfielders need quick lateral movement. Using a resistance training aid like Kinetic Bands while performing some basic ladder drills can help you develop a quick first step and improve your ability to change direction quickly while maintaining body control.
Improve Baseball Base Running
Resistance training with Kinetic Bands can help you increase base running speed by building leg strength, hip flexor strength, stronger glutes for power and explosion, increasing flexibility, and improving balance.
Improve Baseball Pitching and Throwing
Good mechanics are fundamental to becoming a great pitcher. Strong legs and good shoulder and arm strength are also important for aiding a pitcher with delivery and endurance and can help increase pitching velocity, power, and ball movement. It's important to properly stretch before throwing to reduce the risk of injury.
Improve Baseball Hitting
Becoming a better hitter requires skills such as quick hands, concentration, good hand/eye coordination, flexibility, and strength. Many hitters focus on building upper body strength, but increasing lower body and core strength can really help increase power at the plate. Good hitters also need good hip flexibility for a quick first step down the baseline.
