Re: Re: hitting the ball to right field

Posted by: Rich () on Mon Jul 14 19:58:30 2003

im going be a senior this year in highschool. i have problemes hitting the ball to right. i hit alot homeruns to left and center, but balls on the outer half i ground to short or pop up to the infield. are there any drills for me to improve,also i wanna get bigger, stronger, and faster. Are their any weight lifting and training programs out there. thanks
> I just finished High School. I've been a decent hitter to all fields. I've been hitting off the Tee alot before. That helped a lot. Just put the tee on the outside part of the plate and swing. Experiment with different outside locations to see where you hit best. Some hit the outside pitch out in front. Some, like me, wait a split second longer when its closer to the catchers mitt.
> I'm skinny. Like you I'm trying to get bigger and stronger. I have a book called Complete Conditiong for Baseball that's been helpful so far. I heard of another one called 52-week Baseball Training, or something along that line. Another key thing to get bigger is to eat, eat, eat.
> Hope that helps.
> Here's some good advice:
1) lift 2 weeks with weights that you can barely get 15 reps
then lift 2 weeks with weights that you can barely get 10-12rep
then lift 2 weeks with weights that you can barely get 6-8 reps
now start the sequence over and the weight you used for 15 should
be heavier...
2) don't just eat eat eat. eat at least one gram of protein per day
per pound of body weight. if you weigh 150 eat at least 150 grams
of protein. after your workout you have 2 hours to consume at
least 30 grams of protein. this 2 hour window is the time your
muscles NEED the protein to repair and build.
3) take the supplement called Creatine. this supplement is the most
widely researched supplement on the face of the earth. and it is
also the most effective supplement for strength and weight gains.
there are ZERO negative side effects from this supplement. if
there were i wouldn't have my 14 yr. daughter using it.(115lbs.
and hits 210ft taters) i've studied creatine since it was
introduced to the public in 1993. it's all good...
4) the secret to muscle gain is don't miss any workouts and do what
i told you above.
take care, Rich
