Weight Training and Baseball by Rob Maraby
Baseball is known as perhaps one of the most inactive sports there is-by this I mean you don’t really have to be a top athlete to actually be the best at the game! Compared to other games there is far less activity and running! However strength is crucial in this game!
When you are strong, you can hit harder, you can be quicker at base-running and you will have stronger throws- all of which are the needed to win the game. And isn’t that what all baseball players want to have the ability to hit home runs with ease? And make flying passes at the bases beating the throwers to the plate?
Now you can say that some players are gifted and can hit home runns without much training. But for most players , strength training is crucial if they want to excel at the game! Fact is, you can be as strong and just as good as the most talented players through a solid weight training program no matter how skillful you are right now, your speed, muscle endurance and power can all be improved!. It is undeniable what a good weight program can do to improve your game.
