Friday, February 16, 2024

Whether you're a pitcher trying to add more heat to your fastball or an outfielder looking to improve your arm strength, mobility exercises should be a core part of your baseball training program. Proper mobility allows for a greater range of motion, preventing injuries and setting the foundation for increased power. In this video, coach demonstrates 10 simple yet effective mobility drills to help unlock your athletic potential on the diamond. Key areas of focus include the shoulders, hips, and thoracic spine. For example, pull-up bar dead hangs help open up the lats while 90-90 hip lifts mobilize the all-important hip joint. Other highlights include pigeon pumps to target glutes and hamstrings, partner oblique stretches, and t-spine rotations to improve rotational power. Many of the movements use basic equipment like resistance bands, foam rollers, and sliders for a dynamic, full-body warm-up. Controlled training is key - go through the full range of motion in a steady, controlled manner without relying on momentum. Over time, improved mobility leads to better velocity, quicker reaction times, and a reduced risk of arm, shoulder and back injuries. So next time you head out to the field for some baseball training, don't forget these 10 mobility exercises. A consistent flexibility program can help take your athletic abilities to the next level. Unlock your athletic potential and get in the swing of things!
