10 Most Influential Exercises
Weight room training for softball athletes is a must. With limited time, coaches must learn to maximize their time spent inside the weight room by choosing the most influential lifts. Coach Massaro demonstrates the 10 most influential exercises softball players should do. Using kettlebells or dumbbells, these exercises challenge the whole body and will help develop strength and get softball players stronger.
Plyometric exercises incorporate jumping, which forces the softball player to be explosive as they exert maximum force quickly. Coach Massaro uses eight plyometric exercises to build the explosive power and mobility that translates into core strength and speed development.
Getting strong isn't productive for softball players if the athletes get tight and cannot move in the process. Coach Massaro integrates a series of mobility exercises designed to utilize, stretch, and enhance flexibility of athletes as an integral part of their training routine. These exercises, which work hip mobility along with shoulder stability and core strength, require no special equipment and can be performed in the gym or on the field.
Challenge your team with an efficient and tough workout that will make them better players! These 24 exercises will give softball players the functional strength that will make an immediate impact on the field. Your athletes will be stronger, more explosive, and have better mobility on the field.
