Baseball Strength Training: In Season - Part 1

One of the biggest mistakes baseball players make with strength training is failing to “maintain” offseason strength gains once the season starts.  We highly recommend that our BRX Performance clients maintain their offseason strength gains by training at least once and ideally twice per week during the in-season period to avoid losing strength and power throughout the season. It’s also worth mentioning that some of the best results we’ve seen to-date with our clients (ex: 7 mph fastball improvement in two months) have occurred during the season.

Having said that, training in-season can be a tall task during school seasons, when many teams (especially in the northern half of the country) have to cram an entire season’s worth of games into a two or three-month schedule and are playing several games each week.  As you can see, being efficient in the weight room is a necessity during the baseball season.
