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

Core Stiffness Series: #4 ANTI-LATERAL FLEXION

The final piece to my overall CORE STIFFNESS exercise series is Anti-Lateral Flexion; which as the name applies our goal is to prevent or minimize any lateral flexion as the exercise is performed. When Anti-Lateral Flexion drills are implemented along with the other Core Stiffening exercises (Anti-Rotation, Anti-Extension & Anti-Flexion) serious core stiffness can be achieved in order to optimize the generation, transfer and utilization of power.
