    Developed with the expertise of the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA), Strength Training for Baseball CE Course explains the value of resistance training for baseball athletes—backed by practical experience, evidence-based training methodologies, and research. This course will help you understand the specific physical demands of each position—pitchers, catchers, middle infielders, corner infielders, center fielders, and corner outfielders—so you can design programs that translate to performance on the field. You will also find the following:
    • 13 detailed protocols to test baseball athletes’ strength, power, speed, agility, body composition, and anthropometry
    • 11 total body resistance exercises with 13 variations
    • 19 lower body exercises with 29 variations
    • 28 upper body exercises with 38 variations
    • 23 anatomical core exercises with 11 variations
    • 34 sample programs for off-season, preseason, in-season, and postseason resistance training
    Each resistance training exercise consists of a series of photos and a detailed list of primary muscles trained, beginning position and movement phases, modifications and variations, and coaching tips to guide you in selecting the right exercises for a program. You’ll also learn how to structure those programs based on the goals and length of each season and for each position.
