Segment Two – Plyometric Shoulder Training

Whether you’re focused on speeding up your fastball or putting the ball over the fence, your baseball training should include resistance workouts. One particularly powerful training method is plyometric training, which helps you develop explosive power. Plyometric training unites strength and speed, which aids players who have to generate a lot of force quickly, such as pitchers, infielders and batters. Explosive strength can give you the edge necessary to stand out as you move into higher levels of competition.
