Baseball and Softball Catcher Training for Strength, Power, Speed and Lateral Movement with Myosource Kinetic Bands Acceleration Speed Cord

Posted by

How are you developing your baseball and softball Catchers?   Baseball and Softball training for catchers is often overlooked. Unfortunately they do not get a ton of individual speed and power work unless they work on their own. Baseball and Softball catchers will find that incorporating the Myosource Kinetic Bands Acceleration Speed Cord into their training is awesome and offers increased results in less time. This has become an incredibly valuable tool to develop power, lateral movement skills, assist in blocking drills, and is a powerful addition to linear movement skills like explosive fielding and behind the plate movements. The  Acceleration Speed Cord will be a great addition to your catcher workouts.

Baseball and Softball Catcher training is geared at increasing reaction time. Catchers have to develop their muscles to contract and react quickly to move at a greater speed. There will always be those who work harder and are better so baseball and softball catchers have to continuously work to out perform their competition. Notice in the training video above how these catchers are performing live game movements using resistance to train their bodies. They must continuously improve their mechanics and develop their muscles to endure game situations to improve their performance. A great goal for catchers is to mimic their game mechanics/movements to develop and create muscle memory.

In this video these catchers do their best to maintain great body position, stability and form throughout each movement. This prepares the body for game situations without taking extra time to think out the situation. It all just comes natural and the body flows with the brain. The smoother the transition from blocking to coming out of their stance to throwing involves the activation of more muscles then people realize so all of these muscles must be able to react quickly. The quicker a catcher is, the better. Strong and quick muscle reaction time will result in strong and quick body transitions.

The list of things a catcher has to be able to in a natural reaction is very long. They have to focus on the ball all the way to their glove, their stance during different pitches and pitch counts, blocking, sliding, lateral moves, back and forward movements, base runner situations, pick offs, throwing and more. Training while moving through the motions they will perform in games with Myosource Kinetic Bands and Myosource Kinetic Bands Acceleration Speed Cord will improve their game. This video takes baseball and softball catchers through a variety of catching drills. Train to gain.
