4 of the BEST Ab Exercises for Softball Players

In the video below, you will find 4 of the best ab exercises softball players need to be doing this off-season. Very often, softball players think they should be doing a lot of rotation exercises like russian twists, band twists, and crunches, BUT before an athlete can rotate with power, he/she must be able to create trunk stiffness to rotate the obliques around.
