baseball

On a clear and beautiful Tuesday morning, 6 men joined D2 to play baseball. Well, technically there was not a bat or a ball, so maybe baseball is a stretch (7th ining joke). But I had bases and that was enough for me.

As always the morning started with a disclaimer followed by a good warm-up.

Warm-Up

  • Arm Circles
  • Overhead claps
  • More arm circles
  • Neck rotations
  • Imperial walkers
  • Squats
  • Yoga – Up / Down dogs
  • Plank o rama with a few merkins

The Baseball Workout – I brought 4 cones that were used as “bases”. Each base was assigned an exercise.

  • 1st base – Merkin
  • 2nd base – Squat
  • 3rd base – Shoulder Press (aka overhead press)
  • 4th base / home plate – Bent over rows

For the 1st inning, everyone completed 1 rep of the exercise at the base.

  • 1 merkin
  • 1 Squat
  • 1 Shoulder Press
  • 1 bent over row

The 2nd inning, was 2 reps of the exercise.

  • 2 merkins
  • 2 squats
  • 2 Shoulder presses
  • 2 bent of rows

The original plan was to complete 9 innings but the boys were getting after it this morning and everyone completed at minimum 10 innings with some reaching 13.

We finished the morning with a few stretches.
