I haven’t touched a weight since a little before baseball started in early March. For inseason lifting, we perform 1x25 squats with about 65 pounds and continue to do the same with unproductively light weights for other useless isolation movements (for sport atleast), so I classify that as nothing.
Since the end of our season is quickly approaching, and I have a few possible scholorship opportunities that I will get a chance to fight for in late summer through the winter. Because of this, I plan to quit my job and focus fully on my training, nutrition, and progression. My list of things to do goes in this order:
- Finish season healthy
- Get MRI done on throwing shoulder (common procedure)
- Get fired from job
- Start training
I have the first three set up or taken care of already, it’s the training that is left. I personally want to spend the first 12-16 weeks of my offseason doing nothing baseball specific except throwing and hitting so I can focus on adding more mass and maybe get a little faster.
This leads me to a few possibilties, which I have narrowed down to for training. Which leaves for flexibility for speed training, A beginners westside program, Starr’s 5x5, or is there another option I am not considering?
