No Trainer, No Gym, No Problem

Hello Hitters,

Are looking to improve your performance on the baseball diamond, but don't have the means to start?
You don't need to join a gym, hire a trainer or buy an expensive home gym.
The easiest, and best, way to get started is to begin a flexibility and body weight program. Body weight exercises, such as squats and lunges, are excellent for improving strength. When used during interval training, body weight exercises can improve your conditioning.
I recommend that anyone who begins a strength program of any type visits their physician first!

Body weight exercises are easy to do and can be varied to progress the difficulty.
My list of five body weight exercises are:
1.Squats-great for leg strength and hip flexibility
2.Push ups-upper body strength (chest, shoulders) and core stability
3.Planks-core stability
4.Pull-ups-upper body (lats, back, arms) strength
5.burpees-great total body strength and conditioning.

To get more information on these exercises and many more, follow this link.

Improve the way your body moves using body weight. As you gain more flexibility and strength, increase the number of sets and/or reps you do. If that's not enough, vary the exercise to make it more difficult.
