Yoga , The Mobility Activities All Players Should Know

During the season, the typical hitter may take an average of 145 swings per day (early cage
work, batting practice, pre-at bat swings, and during the in-game at-bats). While on a day of his outing,
a starting pitcher may make up to 200 throws (daily throwing program, pre-game bullpen, and outing).
When factoring in the number of years that he has been playing the game and the additional
accumulation as he continues to play, baseball-specific patterns of
imbalance, mal-alignment, and injury present themselves.
Dysfunction affects the efficiency of the kinetic chain, creates the
potential for injury, and inhibits performance by isolating the
joints, and not allowing integrated movement. Common muscular
imbalances must be identified and addressed so that the body may
function as an integrated unit rather than isolated segments.
Due to the repetitive nature of baseball activities, pitchers
typically exhibit flexibility changes of the throwing arm and the
lower extremities (13,14,16). Studies have shown increases of
more than 7 degrees in external rotation at 90 degrees of abduction and a corresponding decrease of
more than 7 degrees in internal rotation. At the elbow, it is not uncommon for throwers to present with
up to a 10 degree loss in extension. Furthermore, the passive range of motion of a pitcher’s nondominant hip is significantly less than the dominant hip in all ranges and this measured disparity between hips correlates with biomechanical parameters during the throw. Because of the lower
extremity movement similarities, …http://www.baseballstrengthcoaching.com/web-storage/webstorage5/The%20Mobility%20Activities%20All%20Players%20Should%20Know.pdf
