Abstract

RESISTANCE TRAINING AND ANAEROBIC CONDITIONING STILL REMAIN THE FOCAL POINT IN BASEBALL ATHLETIC DEVELOPMENT. WHEN DESIGNING ANY BASEBALL ATHLETIC DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM, SPECIAL ATTENTION NEEDS TO BE PLACED ON ACQUIRING SPECIFIC ADAPTATIONS THROUGH DIVERSE MUSCLE STIMULATION AT MANY ANGLES AND SPEEDS, PERFORMED EFFICIENTLY AND APPLIED REPETITIVELY. CREATING LONG-LASTING DURABILITY FOR A BASEBALL PLAYER REQUIRES ADVANCED, STRATEGIC, AND INDIVIDUALIZED EXERCISE PRESCRIPTION CENTERING ON MOVEMENTS THAT INCORPORATE THE HIPS, SPINE, AND SCAPULA.
