Core Stability for the Throwing & Hitting Athlete


Core Stability for the Throwing/Hitting Athlete

We are discussing in this video, how core position and protecting energy leaks through "cylinder" breathing affects hitting and throwing performance, as well as prevents injury. Our goal at this seminar for athletes, was to help them understand how to position their core, activate the proper slings, and move through these slings for power and explosiveness. We demonstrated hands-on movement patterns and skills for over 50+ kids at Home Plate Club in Hutchinson, KS to take home and learn before their summer seasons begin.More about the presenters:Anna Woods, founder of sheSTRENGTH.
