Hardball U Strength Program “ Stronger and Longer”
It is that time of year again folks. Our summer baseball specific strength program will soon be in full swing. Our focus is to build lean, flexible, mobile athletes. We call it, “Stronger and Longer”. This workout is 100% baseball specific and is designed to enhance all facets of your son’s game.
Here is the breakdown.
Three groups of 20 athletes will reserve a spot on the workout roster that begins working on Mondays and Tuesdays through the months of June and July. The starting date is June 10. All reservations are by emailed first request and only Hardball U players are eligible.
Groups will be split by age. Group 1 will be ages 12-14 work at 10 AM, Groups 2 will be ages 15-18 work at 11 AM, and group 3 also ages 15-18 will work at 12 Noon.
The total cost is $150 per month which breaks down into an extremely affordable $18.75 per workout.
What makes this workout special and better than other options? Simple…We will be using TRX bands and trained by certified strength guru Wade Crane. Wade brings a skill set that is unmatched and his intensity and motivational techniques will help develop inner strength and staying power in our athletes, as well.
TRX bands have become the modern craze in many sports that depend upon strength and flexibility such as Olympic swimming, Olympic gymnastics, NBA basketball, world class tennis, and of course, Major League baseball. We truly believe that this program will give a distinct advantage to our athletes.
We will also focus on heavy core work to maximize torque and balance, and add-in intense conditioning along with agilities, plyometrics, yoga stretches, and arm care. Needless to say, arm injury prevention is crucial information every young player needs to know.
We feel that this program is a great opportunity for our players. We, as an organization, feel that our players are committed in a special way and that it is our responsibility to offer a first class strength program to help them pursue their path to their own baseball dreams.
Sign up ASAP by emailing us and getting your spot reserved. We cannot take more than 20 boys per session. This program is not for the faint of heart. This program is hard. If you think you are ready and can handle it, get your reservation in early. The game begins off the field first. Give yourself a chance to perform at your highest level.
