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

Stabilization Limited Training

Stabilization Limited Training (SLT) is a form of training in which the production of force and execution of movement is limited by the strength of the stabilizers and not necessarily of the prime movers involved in a particular exercise.  Another way to interpret this is that in functional movements the prime movers can only provide the amount of force that the core and related stabilizers can support.

A case in point: the Stability Ball Push-Up (hands on ball, feet on floor) recruits and requires far greater core stability & shoulder stabilization than a seated chest press machine.

All in all, by improving core & joint function, Stabilization Limited Training can:
  • Improve joint integrity
  • Improve force production efficiency
  • Decrease injury potential

Train smart. And out train the game.
