In Season Strength and Conditioning Training For Baseball & Softball

By Kyle Harris

When it comes to strength and conditioning in the baseball and softball world, too many coaches are stuck in the dark ages.  The good news is that truth is slowly working its way into more and more programs across the country, which will only lead to greater player development and a decrease in injuries.  The next step in this process is not only continuing to debunk the myth that in season strength and conditioning training for baseball and softball players is bad or harmful, but to educate the masses and show them why this is crucial to enhance and maintain high performance levels.

Why I Did It - Part II

Using the Box Squat for Athletes

The box squat has been made famous by Westside Barbell and Louie Simmons. There is still a fair amount of skepticism over the benefits of box squatting when compared to squatting without a box. At Showtime Strength & Performance, we will primarily use a box when squatting with our athletes. We have found this to be beneficial for both in-season and out-of-season athletes. It’s not a tool reserved only for competitive lifters and we actually think more people should primarily use the box. Lets take a further look at how to properly box squat, how not to box squat, the benefits and when to apply it to your setting.

Strength Training for Softball

For anyone who has watched college softball recently, they’ve seen a sport progressing at a rapid pace. Oklahoma just won the national title with its pitcher consistently hitting 75 mph on her pitches. This speed is amazing compared to what used to be seen, even just a short time ago. We are getting smarter and realizing that softball is primarily a power sport. When we say that we mean short burst of energy, and as much power as quickly as possible.

The Showtime Met-Con Bootcamp


The statement I get most from people is: "I need to lose weight and get in shape, but I have no idea where to start." My first question to that statement is: "What do you eat?" And my second question is, "Are you doing any type of exercise?"
