PTS Baseball | PTS Softball

Baseball is a game requiring the combined execution of varying athletic abilities; short bursts of speed, explosive strength, power, agility, and fine motor control. You need explosive hip and trunk rotation during your swing and pitch. You need explosive speed 90 feet at a time. You need lateral quickness and agility when you lunge, jump, and dive while turning in defensive gems in the field. You require peak core and arm strength to swing for the fences and to gun down runners on the base paths. The Performance Training Systems Baseball conditioning program will effectively develop the ability to enhance your execution of these attributes, and will prepare your body to accommodate and perform these demands; making you stronger, faster, and more agile, helping you to resist injury and give you the ability to recover and endure a long, grueling season. Follow the Performance Training Systems Baseball Program and break through your performance barriers!

    Dietary Supplements: A PTS Advisory -

    Whenever highly talented, motivated and well trained players meet in a Ball game, the margin between victory and defeat is small. Attention to detail can make that vital difference. Your diet affects your performance, and the food you choose in training and competition will affect how well you train and play.

    A well-balanced and varied diet made of natural foods rich in valuable nutrients is the best performance enhancer you can take in. Compared to doping methods and supplements, it has at least two clear advantages: First, it is allowed and will not place you at risk of a positive doping test and consecutive sanctions. Second, it is healthy and will make you feel better in training, competition and leisure time without any hazards to your physical and mental health.

    No other dietary strategies enjoy the reputation of proven performance enhancers as do the consumption of water and carbohydrate during exercise. You can turn this science into optimum performance and well-being by learning the practical aspects.
