🔥 Why Running Poles Actually Makes You WORSE

Running poles, “suicides”, and all the other endurance based activities that go on at the high school (and even sometimes college) level is a complete misunderstanding of the bio-energetic demands of baseball.

Baseball players are NOT endurance athletes: it’s not a Lactic sport!

Baseball is an Alactic-Anaerobic sport

It’s a pitch, followed by rest.

Pitch, rest. Pitch, rest.

What baseball players need is not low output lactic based endurance training, but to develop alactic work capacity

The faster you regenerate creatine phosphate, when the next intense bout of activity comes (the next pitch), you have more adenosine triphosphate available for that next output.
