In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast, I have the pleasure in speaking to President of Cressey Performance, Eric Cressey. Eric is THE man when it comes to physical preparation for baseball in the US so naturally, rotational sports was high on the agenda for this episode. Thank you to all the people that replied on Twitter and came back with some fantastic questions.

In this episode, you will learn –

  • Who is Eric Cressey (background, experience, and current role)?
  •  Importance of developing strength/stability outside the sagittal plane
  • Medicine ball work
    – for the rotational athlete
    – for the team sport athlete
  • Movement assessments
    – overhead lunge walk
    – practical examples of other more focused assessments
  • Unilateral work and the use of fillers
