Shoulder Exercise for Baseball P...

Shoulder Exercise for Baseball Players (or any Throwing Athlete)

I found this video of a shoulder exercise that I have never seen before at BaseballStrengthBlog.com. (It looks like their mother site, BaseballStrength.com, is undergoing some changes and you must now register to assess their resources – but that seems like a small price to pay for what appears to be a very informative web site.)

This exercise is unconventional - but looks promising. According to Coach Dan, this exercise is helpful for:

  • Shoulder Stabilization
  • Shoulder Safety
  • Explosive Shoulder Power

He uses a 2 kg ( a little less than 1 lb. 4.4 lbs - thanks Coach Dan) ball about the size of a basketball – I’m not sure where you’d find the ball that he’s using in the video, but I’m pretty sure a basketball would work just fine.

Be sure to pay attention to what he says in the video – this exercise is not a finger-tip dribbling movement, but an explosive arm movement that is generated by the shoulder.

Give it a try and let me know what you think.
