CSP Elite Baseball Development Podcast: Drew VerHagen

About the Author: Eric Cressey

We welcome St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Drew VerHagen to this week’s podcast. Drew speaks to overcoming injuries, developing as a pitcher in Japan, and how he attacks both offseason and inseason training and throwing. This episode is timely, as my new Thoracic Outlet Syndrome course debuted earlier this week, and Drew details his experienced with both the diagnosis, surgical intervention, and rehabilitation for his TOS.

A special thanks to this show’s sponsor, Ancore Training. This cutting-edge training innovation serves as an amazing replacement for cable columns and functional trainers, allowing you to train important movement patterns at a lower price point, with invaluable portability, and while taking up less space. We have multiple units at both our facilities and love them. Head to www.AncoreTraining.com and enter coupon code CRESSEY at checkout to save 10% on your order.

Sponsor Reminder

This episode is brought to you by Ancore Training. Ancore is an attachment that rigs up easily to power rack, support beam, or wall mount. Once it’s set up, you can do chops, lifts, rotational patterns, presses, rows, and a variety of arm care exercises. Basically, if you can do it on a functional trainer or conventional cable set-up, you can do it on Ancore – but at a dramatically lower price and with much less space taken up. For these reasons, it’s a perfect addition to baseball facilities and home gym that might have limited space and budget. And, we have multiple units at both Cressey Sports Performance facilities.

Perhaps most importantly, Ancore travels extremely light; you can throw it in a backpack or suitcase and not even know it’s there. I know of coaches and players that are taking these units on the road to overcome underequipped weight rooms and hotel gyms.

When all is said and done, it saves space, money, and headaches while also offering the benefits of portability.
