Baseball Strength and Conditioning: In-Season Insights

Written on February 24, 2014 at 8:50 am, by Eric Cressey

Spring training is underway. College baseball has two weekends in the books. High school teams in warm weather climates have been going for a month, and some schools in the Northeast actually start today. So, it should come as no surprise that we're now getting a lot of inquiries about what to do for in-season training.

With that in mind, rather than reinvent the wheel, I wanted to reincarnate a series I wrote on in-season baseball strength and conditioning.  Check it out!

    Quick question regarding what to do with a starting pitcher after an outing. I know you say lift within 12 hrs of a start to consolidate stress into a shorter window to enhance recovery but do you do anything RIGHT after he gets off the field? Mobility or soft tissue work? If he is not going to lift until the next day for example? What about a relief pitcher? Thanks!


  • Stewart,

    Really depends on the guy.  If he’s really stiff, he needs some ROM work immediately after he comes out.  If he’s more loose, I’ll usually just have him do some light foam rolling.  Regardless, they need to crush calories!  I normally don’t advocate icing unless a guy is already accustomed to using it when I get him.
