Upper body and Core workouts

Well…My resistance bands finnally snapped (after 4 years) and I’m flat broke. My TUFF CUFF money went towards re-lacning my glove.

I need to gain 20 lbs of muscle. My lower body is great. My upper body and core…eh. So what are some good upper body and core workouts I could do where I wouldnt have to spend any money.

gaining 20 lbs of bodyweight is difficult…i think 20 lbs of straight muscle is a little unrealistic…

Well just in genral I need to gain more wieght to throw faster.

i understand…do you have access to a gym?

no…I don’t have the money…I had to use it all for getting my glove re-laced, and other equipment fixed, and my resistance bands snapped

for upper body…all i can really advise would be to do push ups, sit ups, pull ups, etc. and if you don’t believe those are useful, take a look at herschel walker.

for more lower body exercises, look at doing plyometrics. it involves alot of high intensity jump training thats great for your lower body and for cardio.
