All developing ball players should incorporate a regimen of weight lifting and strength training into their practice routine. Strength can also be developed through increasing your flexibility, range of motion, and resistance stretching , through exercises such as pushups, crunches, sit-ups, lunges, and jumping drills. You want to not only build your core, but strengthen your upper arms and lower legs as well. This will increase your overall strength, confidence, and ability to shoot and rebound against strong opposition. Aggressiveness and confidence are by-products of our training and experience.
