His philosophy on strength and conditioning is to be able to objectively evaluate what we do and provide feedback to players and coaches. As a staff, we have to holistically educate players for better processes and routines, i.e., sleep, nutrition, prep routines, quality training strategies, etc. Our goal is to build movement proficiency in players and add strength and power to maximize performance and resiliency. Our program trains all three contractile phases, three planes of motion, three speeds, and the core in 360 degrees. We also try to create environments for skill acquisition and transfer and collaborate with other departments to make better decisions for our players programs. At the end of the day, the main goal is to provide efficient and effective practices to maximize player health and baseball performance.
