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

2011 in the books

The 2011 MLB season is in the books. It also marks the second consecutive season that FTB client and Florida Marlins Starting Pitcher Anibal Sanchez has done it again..made all 32 of his starts and finished healthy. Big deal you say. Well, it actually is as Anibal has shown that, since training with FTB, he is healthy and durable following 3 previous injury riddled seasons (2007-2009).

Altho his 2011 ERA is up slightly (due to more HRs allowed) he held opponents to lower BA (.250) and allowed fewer hits (187) & BB (64) than 2010. More importantly, as these numbers demonstrate durable and power, he threw more innings (196.1), more strikeouts (202) than 2010.

He and I have already talked and he is eager to get a jumpstart on our 2011 off-season training program in preparation for the 2012 season

Get ready Miami!

Go hard in the yard.
