Fall baseball (August through October) is here. That’s why my clients are committed to trying new things to determine what doesn’t work and what does.
In addition, softball is in full swing, as the ladies I train are not showing any mercy on pitching.
The fall is my favorite phase of development for my hitters because they become more athletic. The training helps sharpen their critical thinking skills, commitment and discipline.
- Athleticism is the execution of a task even when you lack the fundamentals. They are often kinesthetic learners.
- Thinking Critically is the process of being aware of what to do, analyzing how to do it and applying.
- Commitment is a promised made and kept by you and for you.
- Discipline is doing what needs to be done even when you don’t want to do it.
Here are seven ways to load, which all of my hitters will try this fall (August though October) to determine what doesn’t work and what does work:
- High Leg
- Cross Grip
- Hand Drop
- Open Stance
- Toe Tap
- Bat Wrap
- Your Way
During my Winter Build Phase (November through January), we will build habits and strength based on what works.
