Softball Workouts- Cardio Workout

Image showing cardio workoutToday we will feature this new cardio workout that we have just created. This workout will improve your endurance, speed, balance, and agility. This is one of our more challenging workouts so just be aware that you don’t push yourself to the point where you get injured. It’s crucial that you stretch. This should take around 15 minutes but try to push yourself.

Cardio Workout:

  • Get two markers that you can set about 35 feet away from each other. Do a light jog back and fourth for a minute. Next you will want to do the same thing but this time you’re going to run. After you will sprint back and fourth for 30 seconds.
  • 30 jumping jacks
  • High knees for 30 seconds in a row
  • 15 burpees
  • Next you will sprint 20 feet, then do 15 jumping jacks. After you are done your jumping jacks do 10 push ups. Repeat this 5 times.
  • The finally workout you start with 30 second wall sit and 30 high knees. Then you’re going to decrease by 5 so now you will do 25 second wall sit and 25 high knees. So you will keep decreasing by 5 until your are at 0.

 

Softball Workouts- Indoor Softball Drills

Image showing gym were indoor softball drills are held.Today we will be sharing indoor softball drills that would be very useful for coaches if you’re having indoor tryouts. Also if for some reason you can’t practice outside due to weather. Before we get into the drills I just want to note that majority of these drills will be fielding drills. This is due to the difficulty to do hitting in a smaller enclosed space.

Indoor Softball Drills:

  • The first drill that I would like to share with you is a fly ball/ ground ball drill. This drill focuses on outfielders but is helpful for everybody. You will be standing about 50 feet away from the player (if there’s enough space) that will be catching the ball. So you are going to start off with a slow ground ball. Then you will go with a line drive. After you will want to do a faster ground ball than before and follow up with a line drive again. Then finally hit an even faster ground ball followed by another line drive. I would recommend going through this drill twice with each player. Also since this is indoor you can choose to either throw or hit the ball. But if you want to have one of your players hit/throw the balls instead of the coach this could help improve both the players.
  • Next we have a drill/game that would also be a very good drill for outdoors too. This a another fielding drill but is also a fun game. So you want to gather all of your players up in a circle without gloves. Then you want them to pass around a ball as fast as they can. If somebody drops it they’re out and you keep going until there is only one person left. This will help with transitioning from catching the ball to throwing the ball. It will help get your throws off quicker. Also you can add more than one ball to make it more fast pace.
  • This last workout that I have for is a fitness/ indoor softball drill. You want to have two coaches 30 feet apart each will start with a ball. Then a player will run towards the other coach with a ball. The coach will toss a the ball up and the player will catch it then hand the ball to the coach. After the player will run to the other coach and do the same hand offs. They will repeat this how ever many times you want. This drill will help improve hand eye coordination and physical fitness.

Softball Workouts- Softball Throwing Tips

In this new tip segment we will focus on Softball Throwing Tips be helping you improve your throwing power and accuracy.  We will be teaching skills that you may already know and that will help improve any position. Even though these are basic drills they are very crucial to the game. If you are a softball or baseball coach these are very important for your players to do when their throwing.

Tips:

  • The first throwing tip is whenever you are throwing you want to point your front toe wherever you are trying to throw it. This will increase your accuracy drastically.
  • The next throwing tip that I have for you is to always plant your back foot before your front foot when throwing. This will help increase your accuracy as well as throwing power.
  • This tip is for infielders that are charging in on the ball. You always want to charge on the ball straight on to have better momentum towards your throwing target. This will help your throwing power.
  • The last tip that we have for you today is mainly for infielders. When you are running to the side to get a ground ball. Also if you have enough time try to plant your back foot before you throw.
