Wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction...

I started to play baseball again and I need to improve my running speed (like 60 time) and arm strength. I wanted to know if anyone here knows some good sources for information since google sends me to bb.com forums and articles for the most part.

The go to man for me when it comes to sports training is Joe Defranco. I know he's answered questions on his Q and A about baseball in the past and he has a good template setup for off season athletes called Westside for Skinny Bastards. www.defrancostraining.com

60/30 splits


60 seconds of walking fast or light jogging
30 seconds of dead out sprints

if you don't wanna go on time use goals ahead like phone poles, cars, etc.


make sure you stretch ALOT before AND afterwards.

For pitching arm strength, cable crossovers, and forarm work are fundamentals.

cable crossovers are important for arm strength when throwing? lol

weight training has a place in a baseball conditioning program but certainly not at the fore front. bands, plyometrics and sprt specific drills are far more important.

as far as arm strength nothing beats progressivly longer long toss 2-3 times a week.

Oh man, I just saw this! This is what I'm talking about. Boy could I help you. Honestly.

Let me tell you something. In high school they said I was the only person that could turn a double into a single. I ran a 7.6 - 60yd my freshman year in college and did not start because of my speed. I went home and BUSTED MY ASS all summer. I came back and started. I was the leadoff hitter. I ran a 6.8 - 60 my sophomore and got my 40 time to 4.6. I was a catcher.

Also, I am now a professional pitching/hitting instructor for an elite baseball academy in Ohio. PM me.
