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

Why Baseball Players Shouldn't Olympic Lift | Eric Cressey

This is an excellent article from Eric Cressey, owner of Cressey Performance. 

 On June 25, 2010 I posted a blog which described my non-conforming perspective and thoughts regarding O-lifts for baseball performance strength training.

So when I read Eric's article earlier this week it was great to know that there were others (especially baseball reputable such as Eric) who shared similar views.
