Off-season Training for Baseball Players

Today’s high school baseball players are playing for multiple teams, participating in travel ball and showcases and sometimes pitching over 100 innings per year. Although we don’t recommend this, it’s not likely going to change anytime soon. As a result, we have developed a program specifically to help prepare these young athletes for this kind of volume. The program is an off-season protocol for high school level players with a focus on further developing their movement (mobility) and physicality (functional strength) to help improve their performance.

Program summary:

    • 1x per week (14 total sessions)
    • Program runs from Sunday, December 4th through Sunday, March 19th (no sessions on Sunday 12/25/22 and Sunday 1/1/23)
    • Designated time slot – Sundays at 9:00 – 10:30 am

Our program addresses:

    • Proper warm-up
    • Improving tissue quality and thoracic spine mobility
    • Helping get back lost internal rotation in both the shoulder and lead leg
    • Coaching proper activation and timing (neuromuscular control) to ensure good scapular movement in all planes
    • Functional overall strength training (full body)
    • Getting range of motion back after a long season
    • Core work (in all 3 planes)

Putting these principles on top of a great strength training program is the cornerstone of our training.  Program highlights are as follows:

    • SMR (foam rolling) – Improve soft tissue quality and help reduce trigger points without lengthening the muscle
    • Warm up – Flexibility circuits and stabilization drills, teaching good scapular activation and timing as well as getting the athlete ready to move
    • Enhanced rotator cuff strength, proprioception and rate of force of development (how quickly it fires)
    • Med ball/mobility work – Helps improve rotary movement, upper and lower body separation, as well as power and timing of the core
    • Improved function of the low traps and serratus, scapular stabilizers
    • Improved T-spine mobility
    • Strength training – Getting the athlete stronger in the weight room by focusing on lower body, core, lower quarters, upper body and shoulders
    • Conditioning – Speed work to help increase explosiveness, velocity and endurance specific to pitchers
