In-Season Training Recommendations for Baseball & Softball Athletes
by Josh Wildeman, MA, CSCS, RSCC, USAW

Due to the unique scheduling demands (doubleheaders, mid-week games, tournaments) and changes due to weather, it can often be challenging to structure effective in-season strength and conditioning for baseball and softball athletes. The goal during this time period is to maintain the athletes' strength and power by eliciting the maximum effectiveness of training with the minimum dosage. Therefore, narrowing the focus of the training prescription to five main pillars (1. mobility 2. rotational power 3. sprint training 4. total body strength and power maintenance 5. shoulder care) and providing the athletes with the autonomy to select the exercise that best fits their current state of readiness is imperative.
