    Last time I played baseball it was a prepubescent 2nd basemen. I added about 20+lbs of muscle in the last 4 years or so and got alot stronger. What are some workouts I can do to help me hit bombs in a mens baseball league and a beer league softball league? I was thinking of hitting the core extra hard. any advice?

    :bowdown: Hank Aaron credited his power to chopping wood.

    I would mostly work the core and shoulders. Leg work would be a good idea too.

    i should probably bust out my masons sledge hammer. My shoulders are good, my core is probably lagging.

    I think benching might be bad if you want to throw harder. I think it would help you hit a ball harder, but I think I've lost a lot of flexibility, feels kind of weird to throw a ball now

    you may want to target the core muslces, along with back, shoulders and legs. Primarily legs.

    Most of the power comes from the legs and core. :dunno:

    Practice hitting a ball into a net for an hour a day. Pretty easy
