What level do you play? I am also getting ready for softball this year. Trying to be a little smarter this summer.The problem is I am training for a deadlift meet in March. I was training for a 3 lift but It was too much so I cut back on the squatting.
Softball specific training are wide pinch with the blob, thick bar wrist roller, levering(all directions). I am a firm believer that forearm strength helps a lot.2 summers ago I was doing a lot of bending and seemed to help. Lots of back work as well.
I am basically an old powerlifter who plays softball all summer.I havent competed in 2 years though. This season I am going to not bench heavy... do more bodybuilding style workouts to make it easier on my arm... Its just too much because it is always dead around july. I am also looking at making it stronger if I can.I need some good rotator cuff exercises.
I am also looking to increase my bat speed. any training ideas about that?
