- 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

I just returned from Cincinnati, Ohio visiting client & friend, Cincinnati Reds catcher Ramon Hernandez. Saw the Reds sweep the Cardinals and overtake 1st place in a 3 game series. Ramon had an incredible series-going 6 for 8 that included three HRs (all were 400+ feet), double, and 2 singles; raising his average to .349
The strength and power program we implemented during the off-season combined with his on going in-season training is having tremendous benefits.
Out train the game.
