Baseball Exercise of the Week | "Wrist Extensions"

This week's Baseball Exercise of the Week is "Wrist Extensions”  

In last week’s blog we discussed Wrist Flexions and the benefits associated with strengthening your forearms. This week we feature Wrist Extensions and the multiple muscle groups in the forearm that are strengthened from this exercise. With Wrist Flexions we were working the flexor muscles in the forearm, while this week with Wrist Extensions we are working the extensor muscles. Flexors and extensors oppose the actions of muscles on the other side of the joint. It’s important to work both the flexors and extensors so as not to create a muscular imbalance and to increase strength overall.

Baseball Functional Friday | "One-Legged Plate Push"

The One Legged Plate Push challenges the athlete to stay low and recruit all sorts of strength, power and stability to propel themselves forward. This is a similar demand to various movements that a baseball player will find themselves making through the course of a game, such as a quick lateral movement to field a ball; bounding out of the box; stealing a base; and moving from a catch to throw position to name the most likely to occur.
