Free Presentation: Individualizing the Management of Overhead Athletes

Written on June 30, 2013 at 6:18 pm, by Eric Cressey

It's been a while since I updated the free bonus I give to all my baseball-specific newsletter subscribers when they sign up for this free mailing list, so I figure now is as good a time as ever.  With that in mind, by entering your name and email in the opt-in below, you'll be emailed access information so that you can watch my 47-minute seminar presentation, Individualizing the Management of Overhead Athletes.  I've given this presentation to more than 10,000 coaches, players, sports medicine professionals in the past 18 months, and it's been a big hit.


In this free presentation, you'll observe a lot of our Cressey Performance athletes training and learn:

  • Why different athletes need different approaches to power development
  • Why it’s essential that you learn to train outside the sagittal plane
  • Which medicine ball and plyometric variations I use with baseball players
  • Why not all throwers have identical deceleration patterns or training needs
  • How your arm care programs can be improved to reduce the risk of injury and improve throwing velocity


Hope you enjoy it.  Thanks for your continued support - and please don't hesitate to share this page to those who you think might be interested in and benefit from the information I present.

    That was awesome. Do you start med ball work in tall or half kneeling, or only in certain circumstances? Thanks!

  2. Eric Cressey Says:


    We rarely do any ground-based medicine ball drills.

  3. Chris Says:

    Great stuff on the arm care. Noticed there was no internal rotation stuff, just external, eccentric and rhythmic stabilizations. Why no internal rotation work?

  4. Eric Cressey Says:


    We still do some motor-control-oriented IR stuff.  Just not as much pure strength stuff, as guys get plenty of it from throwing and other lifting exercises.
