5 Ways Fastball USA Training Is Unique

We Train With Extreme Purpose.
Every Rep counts. It is a specific mission, and a specific purpose.

Everyone practices. Practice does NOT make you special. How you practice is what makes you special. We choose to practice deliberate. Very specific purpose to each and every rep. YOUR TRAINING NEEDS TO BE A SEPARATOR.

Our training includes constant measurement.
Warm Ups, Workouts, Hitting Performance, Throwing Performance, Strength, Quickness.

Objective Measurement during training provides instant and immediate feedback on performance.

Anything worth practicing, is worth measuring.

Measurement & Recording Performance creates accountability as well as reinforcing practicing with purpose.
Be an athlete when Your throw or hit — NOT a Robot!

People often work on "Mechanics" and become "Mechanical or Robotic". At Fastball USA our goal is to draw out the natural athletic ability in each athlete and let it shine when they swing or throw a baseball.

Technique to us is when the body and arm, or body and bat are working connected together in a flow.

Athletic Throwing and Athletic Hitting is a critical point to maximizing performance.
Building better movers! Strength, speed, power as it relates directly to the sport of baseball and softball.

We work 90% of the time inside the ATP/CP System
(Fast Twitch.... 12 Seconds or Less)

We work the body for the demands of the sport.
1 Leg, Rotational, Energy Transfer, Athletic

Our Goal is to build a bigger motor, and train to move it faster, quicker, rotationally and laterally, as it applies to hiting and throwing a baseball.

--> You won't see our players running poles or long distances
--> You won't see our players doing mindless lifts
--> You won't see our players training outside the ATP/CP system.

- Fueling The Fire of Aggressiveness because the greatest players in any sport are the most aggressive players.

- Failure is an option. Learn to Fail Differently.
If you're not failing, or looking stupid in practice, the practice is Too Easy.

- The Greatest Players in the World FAIL more than the rest.
Babe Ruth — 714 Home Runs — 1313 Strike Outs
Reggie Jackson — Over 500 HR's — 2500 K's.
Ricky Henderson — Most Stolen Bases — Most Caught Stealing
Nolan Ryan — Most Strike Outs — Most Walks.

Looking Good in Practice is NOT the goal.

The Goal is to challenge your athlete slightly beyond his current ability level.

The Greatest Improvement comes outside the comfort zone. The comfort zone is a great place, but nothing ever grows there.
