Books about training and conditioning for the sport of baseball.
This book features a comprehensive training approach that builds players' physical abilities as well as the baseball-specific skills their positions require, including exercises, drills, and programs designed to improve the essential elements of the sport—strength, power, speed, agility, and quickness. An included 45-minute DVD demonstrates the exercises and drills by players. Also includes physical assessment tests, nutritional guidelines, and seasonal workouts. Written by Steve Tamborra, a strength and conditioning coach for 60 AP Collegiate All-Americans, 16 first-round draft picks, and more than 100 athletes drafted by professional sports teams.
This book describes the same baseball-specific training regimen as the major leaguers to prepare for the demands of today's game. Written by Gene Coleman who worked as the strength and conditioning coach for the Houston Astros. The book includes a complete year-round conditioning plan to keep in shape in the off-season and for peak performance during the season and playoffs, including resistance training, total conditioning exercises, and position-specific activities.
