Non weight workouts ideas


#1

Do any of you guys have good baseball related non weight/lifting involved workouts? I am only 13 and do not want to start lifting or using weights yet.

ariscards13,

you don’t have to pay $30 for workouts.

stick to pushups, pullups, planks, and body weight squats for now. Medicine ball work is excellent as well. Get really really strong at those. Do explosive exercises and you don’t want to start anything out of breath. No cross fit, no long distance running whatsoever. Baseball is an explosive, not an endurance, sport.

I have linked up below Eric cressey’s website, be sure to read everything you can. He is the best out there as far as conditioning the baseball player goes. Have your dad read some of the science stuff if it gets really complicated.

IT is awesome that you are going after your goals at such an early age.
let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks for your responses guys!

In response to you robertvilla32, I pretty much do everything you listed and am pretty strong at those. I have developed a good strength base for my age and size(5 foot 2 109 pounds) and plan on growing on my strength. I will definitely look at that website you put in the link.
