Velocity Based Training for Baseball

Velocity Based Training for Baseball Players

Training for baseball is something we specialize in at 1RM Performance. We work with baseball players ranging from junior high to professional and everything in between. With all the hours spent working with baseball players, there is one thing you learn: the BEST baseball players are the MOST powerful. Yes, there are insane skills involved, but power is the underlying factor with all high level baseball players. This sounds obvious, but i feel like this often gets over looked, especially in the world of training baseball players. Remeber, Power = Force X Velocity. The amount of power we generate day to day is dependent on the reactivity and sensitivity of an athletes Central Nervous System (CNS). Success in baseball IS CNS dependent, and we have found the key to unlocking the CNS.

The simplest way to see if your lower body is holding you back is to see if your lower body has enough power and strength to begin with. In other words, does your lower body have sufficient power but you are just not using it? Or, are you just so weak and have such little power coming from your lower half that there is nothing there to help you generate speed and power into the ground and down the mound helping you throw.
