Strength Training for Baseball
with David Ohton,
San Diego State University
Strength and Conditioning Director
One of the most important areas to focus on in any sport is strength training and baseball should be viewed no differently. San Diego State's Strength and Conditioning Director takes you through a very detailed and baseball-specific strength workout that can be used for any position. Warm-ups, circuit training, dumb bell training and medicine ball training are all demonstrated by Ohton. Proper technique and safety is emphasized with every lift that is demonstrated. Specific baseball lifts for the shoulder, chest, legs, abs and back are all demonstrated. Ohton emphasizes that any position and any age can use the workouts demonstrated. This is a great video to assist in developing team training and an ideal video for players to utilize as a personal training resource!

with David Ohton,
San Diego State University Strength and Conditioning Director
Learn how David Ohton teaches the San Diego State baseball team speed, flexibility, and conditioning. After complete discussion and demonstration of the Aztec warm up and flexibility drills, Ohton shares the endurance building running program they use. The program that is used at San Diego State starts with a cardio program, then works into an intermediate program, competition period, and ends with the "showtime" period. Each of these steps will cover between 2-3 weeks and build each athlete's endurance, speed, and running form. This will gradually work your athletes into top shape. Finally, Ohton diagrams the agility drills that he uses to help each athlete reach their potential. Over 20 different baseball-specific agility drills are shown. The flexibility program, conditioning program, and agility drills are ideal for a team setting or for individual player workouts.
