Baseball Agility

Hello Everyone!

AGSP has seen the return of many of it's baseball and softball athletes over the past few days. So I thought now would be a good time to share two baseball agility videos that were sent to me from an AGSP athlete.

Baseball and Softball are about as powerful, fast-twitch-muscle-fibered sports as you can get. The best players are the ones that can generate a tremendous amount of power in a split second.  Swings, pitches, and throws are all about quick power.

A skill set that isn't as well appreciated in baseball and softball athletes are their agility skills. Agility is an athlete's ability to change his/her body's position and direction quickly and efficiently. Here are two great examples of agility on the diamond.

And yet again...

Everyday at AGSP we work on both power and agility improvement. Which is a big reason why so many of our athletes are returning for another off-season of training!

Keep Training!
