Until now, only the pros and some major college players had access to sport-specific training advice for developing their bodies to excel on the field. > Complete Conditioning for Baseball> is the first comprehensive training book to show baseball players and coaches at all levels how to get in the best possible shape so they can hit the ball harder, throw it faster, and run with greater agility and speed.For players, > Complete Conditioning for Baseball> is a year-round conditioning manual that they`ll take to the weight room as well as to the practice field. For coaches, it`s the ideal team and player training guide that they`ve wished for years they had.The book`s all-star lineup features:- 105 photographs illustrating correct exercise technique and game action;- 26 tables containing training workouts and programs;- 39 strengthening exercises for building the muscles used most in baseball;- 46 drills for developing greater power, speed, and agility;- nutritional guidelines; and- 12-week, sample training programs for pitchers and position players, off-season and in-season.The authors are two of the best authorities when it comes to maximizing the performance potential of players through baseball-specific conditioning. Pat Murphy, who brought Notre Dame`s baseball program from the bottom to the top, now is at Arizona State piloting one of the country`s best college baseball programs. Jeff Forney is the strength and conditioning coach for the Arizona Diamondbacks. Murphy and Forney present exercises and drills that transfer directly to the playing field for winning performance.
