Baseball and Softball with Douglas Brooks ( TRT: approx. 1 hour)
Everything in baseball happens quickly. Throwing, hitting, fielding the ball, getting out of the batter’s box, stealing bases…you name it! Learning and practicing integrated movement skills that improve balance, core strength, quickness, agility and power can make a big difference in your baseball or softball game.
Section 1: Balance and Equilibrium Warm-up
Good equilibrium and tracking skills will help you with batting and chasing down batted balls.
Section II: Multi-Directional Movement
This series of multi-directional movement skills will help establish good positioning for fielding and transitioning to a strong throw.
Section III: Neuromuscular Activation
Whether you’re hitting, throwing, fielding, pitching or running, you need to know how to prepare your body for all out effort. This series of drills can also be an effective prep routine for late game pinch hitters, defensive replacements and relief pitchers.
Section IV: Quickness and Agility
Improving quickness, agility and reaction time will give you the performance edge when you need to turn that double play or explode out of a catcher's crouch to throw out a base runner.
Section V: Athletic Strength, Power and Core
These drills focus on total body power production, core strength, stability and rotary movement skills. Linking movement from head to toe will help you throw, hit and move more efficiently.
Section VI: Flexibility
Stretching can help you improve performance, avoid injuries and help your muscles relax and recover after a challenging workout.
