At every level, baseball training revolves around strength, speed, agility and flexibility training. An effective baseball strength training program is designed to significantly improve your performance and NOT about bulking up! The fact is a baseball player has very little external forces acting upon them. This means you should not be training like a football player because you will never have a 270lbs opponent trying to rip you head off on the field and tackle you to the ground.

Too much size can reduce your range of motion, restrict your quickness and agility and hamper your execution of skills. Strength training for baseball is very different from a contact sport like football. The main priority for baseball players is to develop maximal strength and then convert those gains into explosive power, in particular hitting and throwing power, as well as acceleration. It's important to remember that bigger muscles are not necessarily more powerful muscles.
