    Lower Body Exercises

    Front Squats

    Squats are the king of all lower body exercises because they are the best exercise to improve strength in the lower body. Unless you have access to a safety squat bar, I highly recommend front squats for baseball players. While back squats are a great exercise, I don’t recommend them to baseball players because of the position it puts the shoulders in. Why force a baseball player into this vulnerable position when the shoulders are already taking a beating from playing the sport.


    If squats are the king of all lower body exercises, deadlifts are the king of full body exercises. It trains just about every muscle in the posterior chain and is an important exercise to build a solid foundation of strength in the lower body. There are many different variations of the dealift that are effective. These include trap bar deadlifts, sumo deadlifts, conventional deadlifts and romanian deadlifts.
