The question you need to ask yourself, “Do I even know what it takes to become a Baseball Player, much less an Elite Baseball Player?”
Yet too many baseball players avoid the real answer by blurting out what they are doing versus really having a clue of what it takes to become Baseball Player. Responding generically, “I am lifting to get stronger; plyometrics to get faster. But for most, they are unable to answer, “Why?” They really do not know.
Certainly it’s not a justification, but when it comes down to it they don’t know. They really don’t know why they are doing what they are doing. They just are.
Benjamin Franklin said, “Never confuse motion with action!”
Most are “going through the motions” lifting weights just to get stronger, or doing plyo’s to just to get faster. I agree doing something is better than doing nothing, but going through the motions is not good enough! Especially when determining what you need to work on is easier than you think.
For many it begins with changing the way you think. Baseball is an individual sport in a team concept,and college and professional teams do not recruit or draft a whole team. They fill needs, and your job is to be the guy who fills that need. Know this, if YOU don’t improve YOU will be left behind.
So rather than lift or do plyo’s just because a friend or a team is doing it, truly find out what you need to improve on, find a program that will fix it, and keep doing it until you improve. So, how bad do you want it, because you also know if you do not perform, they will go to the next one.
Want to be that guy? Then you need to recognize how you prepare and how you perform is about YOU and only YOU.
The first step is to find out what you don’t know. Get yourself and your game evaluated by someone who truly knows.
So, before you just join a program because “fill in the blank.” Get evaluated by
- Someone who knows your position
- Someone who knows from experience what college coaches and professional scouts are really looking for
Training Intelligently is simple!
Learn the truth, and then start fixing what needs fixing. After all, the key to being successful is simply being good.
For many the key is really knowing what it means to be good.
