Baseball Training Focuses

Training Focuses

More Explosive First Step Quickness

Most all sports are played is short, quick, powerful bursts and the faster you get up to top speed, the more dangerous and game changing your skills will become. At EM first step quickness is achieved through Force, Strength, Technique and Acceleration. Over 10 years we have led the field of speed ‘out of the box’ for athletes of all skill levels and all sports, EM will give you the training you need to drop your competition, gap defenders and accelerate explosively!

Training Focuses

Increased Endurance

When people think of endurance and stamina, they tend to focus on are cardio activities like running or cycling, but that’s a small part of the equation – you also need to improve your explosive strength. For example, building power in your legs gives you the ability to propel yourself further in every step you take while running. The added muscle also helps absorb the impact that would otherwise put stress on your joints. EM builds your power and endurance allowing you to perform at a higher level in all sports and all positions.

Training Focuses

Flexibility

The word "stretching" makes most people think of a yoga instructor twisted up into painful pretzel like positions. Turns out that isn’t the only way to improve flexibility. The structure of your workouts has everything to do with you being flexible. Your EM workout combined with nutrition, hydration, and sleep is proven to help you increase your flexibility and is crucial for more than just preventing injury, in fact, flexibility training is an important aspect of gaining strength, size and explosiveness. Every EM workout has a component of flexibility training and helps athletes in all sports increase the range of motion that gets gains in all areas of performance!

Some EM facilities also offer athletic yoga and sports massage.

Training Focuses

Joint Stability

For your joints to stand up to the stress you put on them playing sports, they must be stable and mobile. Athletes with greater joint stability are proven to perform better in all explosive activities and decrease the chance of injury. Every EM workout has a component of Joint Stability / Mobility to help you pivot, cut and explode in every angle.

Training Focuses

Injury Prevention

Absolutely no one wants to be sidelined with an injury, although you learn how to appreciate every moment on the field and take nothing for granted, it’s better to be on the field or court with your teammates. Some of the least exciting exercises and movements are the injury prevention portion of what EM does – but they net the biggest results. Every EM workout is built carefully to contain a segment involving joint stability, flexibility and injury prevention – all trouble areas are addressed including knees, hips, shoulder, arms and most all areas prone to injury based on sport and position.

Training Focuses

Explosive Strength and Power

Put down the Extreme-Mega-Mass-Power-Builder-Anabolic Shake, and build Strength and Muscle Mass the right way with EM. You don’t need the latest shake, bar, cream or gel – EM’s Strength and Mass Building program is a proven mix of training and nutrition that maximizes lean, strong muscles while improving joint stability and proportional symmetry for a balanced strong and explosive athlete. You supply the commitment and we’ll supply the program.

Training Focuses

Nutrition and Supplement Program

If you’re an athlete who’s hard in training, one thing that you absolutely must be taking into account is the nutrition that you are using on a day to day basis. Fail to get the right nutrition in and you will fail to see the performance that you should. At EM we walk you through some of the most important considerations for today’s athletes of all ages. It’s important to note that your nutrition needs are going to change as you advance in skill level and get older. We will provide the adjustments you need if you’re just beginning, if you’re at the novice level and getting ready to advance, and making your way up the ladder to Collegiate and Professional Sports.
