Coffee As Energizer of Baseball Players?

August 12, 2018 Batlling_leadoff 0

Are you a baseball player? Or, do you have a friend or family member who plays baseball well? Allow me to recommend this simple energizer for baseball players that won’t cost at all. It’s coffee!

Except if coffee is an allergy to you, I strongly recommend it to you, if you are a baseball player, or perhaps, you could do the same for a friend/relative. Over the years, many that belong to the working class population, amongst other categories of people, have found much satisfaction in coffee consumption: they take it before arrival at their workplace, while at work, while on break (at lunch time), or even after closing hour. However, sportsmen (or women) do not often take it, for reasons best known to them, perhaps, because they do not see coffee as a strong, quick-action, non-harmful energizer, appropriate to improve athletic performance on pitch/field. You need to know that caffeine in coffee is the main ingredient that causes the overall energy-drive and energy-boost effect.


Just like other athletes, baseball game requires much energy input, to navigate, hit, pass or play the base-ball amongst players. Often times, it is obvious that energy is drastically drained and either a re-fill alternative is required or more-than-sufficient energy is, in the first place.

Although, taking coffee on the field of play may not be allowed, however, when in recess or before the start of the game, a calculated amount of coffee in the body system can do some energy wonders unimagined.

Coffee contains caffeine, which is a stimulant, that aids body-mass regulation (such as weight loss), boost metabolic processes or suppress hunger. More so, it stimulates faster reasoning capacity, as well as it is loaded with antioxidants and nutrients. In essence, more importantly, as a baseball player, you do need muscles (not fat), hyperactive brain activity and stimulating effects, with sufficient energy, for improved performance in the field of play. This is all packaged in a cup or two, of coffee that you take in! More so, coffee can when endurance level as an athlete is required, to pull through on the pitch. It is also awesome to consume as a pre-workout drink, to burn fat (or say using the stored up fat as fuel/energy when needed) and suppress appetite.


Listed below are some major benefits played by coffee consumption and relevant in improving athletic performance and here’s how we decided on taking it regularly, for the sake of the following:
– Improves ability to burn body fat
– Causes drastic energy build-up in the body system
– Improves endurance level
– Resists or suppresses fatigue
– Suppresses appetite
– Boosts metabolic activity (instead of glucose or energy being stored up)
– Reduces fatigue
– Improves focus and/or concentration on work-outs or activities (since there is improved brain function like in the memory and reasoning areas of the brain)
– Suppresses Muscle pain (especially pains that are exercise-induced)
– Helps in fighting diseases and illnesses (as it produces/ contains some antioxidants and nutrients)

These, amongst several others, are the health and performance benefits coffee consumption can add to the life of an athlete. You might want to make your wise choice too by joining the B baseball coffee-consuming players. What a name to bear!

Best Workouts for Baseball Players

June 30, 2018 Batlling_leadoff 0




A great baseball player has 4 tools in the arsenal: powerful hit, elite speed, arm strength, and nimble ability. There are not too many people who possess all 5 tools, but when this happens, it is undoubtedly special. Fortunately, these skills are attainable for everyone on the condition that they have the right training and workout session to improve their natural ability. With that in mind, here are top 7 common exercises that would improve your performance on the field.

1. Prone planks
Planks are a great exercise for every baseball player since it helps build a strong core, enhance stability, keep the balance and increase the overall strength of your body. In addition, planks would support the hips and back, which allows for more powerful hits on the field. Compared to crunches, planks are often more difficult yet better for working more muscles than just your abdominals, just like when using the EMS technology to improve the overall muscle strength.

2. Rotational cable row
If you want to develop the hip rotation and improve power, a rotational cable row exercise might be an ideal option. In general, it is good for batting and throwing. Make sure that your feet are a bit more than the shoulder-width apart, then reach across the body and grab a cable. Keep in mind that your body should be in a batting posture. While pulling up the cable and rotating, the movement mimics batting.

3. Glute bridge
The glute bridge workout is important for a stable and strong swing as it helps build stability and power in your hips and glutes which enhances glute activation. Asa result, the overall weight of a baseball player could be added to increase his strength.

4. Single-arm and single-leg cable row
This type of exercise helps achieve many strength-training objectives for baseball players by developing the lower and upper body parts simultaneously and allowing for great balance while performing it. If done correctly, the single-arm and single-leg cable row would activate the hamstrings, glutes, core muscles, and back muscles. However, it can be tricky for some people when doing the arm extension. Therefore, make sure to keep your back straight and not extend the arm fully to avoid stressing the shoulders.

5. Front-to-back lunges
Adding a front-to-back lunge to the workout program of a baseball player can be a great ideal to increase flexibility and stability in their lower extremities. This combination will allow you to experience from both lunge and front benefits as it requires the activation of many core muscles, thing, and glutes.

6. Hops
Any variation of the hops, such as mini and lateral hops, would accomplish several training goals. Some simple exercises can make a baseball player lighter in his feet, improve side-to-side transferal, and enhance directional movement. This allows for greater knee and hip flexion, coordination, and agility which are some of the most important requirements in a good fielder.

7. Heiden jumps
Though heidens are the common exercises for most hockey players, they can also a great option for baseball players. With some simple movements, it can improve balance, flexibility, and stamina in the knees and ankles. Therefore, you would be able to get off the ground quickly when throwing or hitting the ball on the field.
