My goal is to be a power pitcher. I had used gymnastic exercises during the last offseson and I gained both maximal and relative strength twice as fast as I did with weights. The core exercises were especially beneficial; during spring training my core was so strong I barely felt the puny crunches until the reps were in the hundreds.
Isn’t it better to have a really strong core than being able to just do lots of crunches? Wouldn’t a strong core increase velocity?
Do you guys think it would be safe to use core exercises from gymnastics such as front levers, L-sits, hanging leg raises, and ab wheels for baseball? If you have no idea what these exercises are like you can go to gymnasticbodies.com for more info.
