Re: Re: strength training for hitting

> If you watch Chase Utley workout it is all about core stretching and strength so this exercise you describe doesn't surprise that it worked. I watched an ESPN segment and it showed Mark Texeira playing stick ball. What surprised me was how flexible he was when he rotated when he hit. He was playing with regular guys so it was very apparent that he was more core flexible than they were. Core flexibility and strength carries over and benefits running, throwing, and even kicking a ball.

I think you need to be careful when it comes to watching an athlete's current workout & trying to decide if that's what made a big chunk of what they are now or not. Some of these folks were likely very flexible to begin with & had excellent natural ability levels prior to ever hearing of this type of training. Or, perhaps they did get exposed to a method which made a big difference. It's tough to tell just from hearing the reports. Especially when you look at all the gadgets & courses for sale. Some of it is likely useful while some is just plain old marketing (another word for bs)
