- Five Tool Baseball Performance Training (FTBPT) is dedicated to sharing its knowledge, ideas and opinions on baseball performance training based upon field tested experiences as player, coach and baseball strength & conditioning coach. Proper exercise technique ( to ensure effective & efficient training programs) and baseball related movement patterns are implemented to maximize on-field performance. Emphasis is placed on movement based training which integrates multiple muscle groups. This approach has a greater transfer to on-field performance and can minimize the incidence and risk of injury. If a game is being played you can be sure Im watching it from home or from the stands. Many of my own workouts involve designing/creating out-of-the-box exercises & programs to enhance performance and movement unique to baseball

Power Up...pounds down
In November 2009 Anibal Sanchez, P - Florida Marlins, begins training with Five Tool Baseball. On our first day of training, he tipped the scale at 235lbs. 3 months later he walks into Spring Training clubhouse and weighs in at a lean 205 lbs. For 3 months(4 days a week) our strength training program enabled Anibal to drop the weight while improving his strength,power and flexibility. He's is one of the more dedicated and commited players to have trained with Five Tool Baseball. It made my job not only easier but so much fun.
Good Luck Anibal.
Go hard in the yard.
