CSP Elite Baseball Development Podcast – January 2023 Q&A: Assessment Principles, Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, Warm-ups, and 91mph 13-year-olds
Written on January 18, 2023 at 5:59 am, by Eric Cressey
It’s time for another listener Q&A, so I cover four questions from our audience in this week’s podcast on the following topics:
- “Big Rock” Assessment Principles
- Why Thoracic Outlet Syndrome is a Diagnosis of Exclusion
- The Key Components of a Good Warm-up
- Injury Concerns in Young Pitchers with Elite Velocity
A special thanks to this show’s sponsor, Proteus Motion. They’re changing the way we assess and train athletes with their 3D Resistance. Head to www.ProteusMotion.com/elite to learn more about this cutting-edge technology.
Proteus Motion has a patented technology that allows us to measure power for the overwhelming majority of human movements. Proteus software guides users through 4-minute physical assessments to arm trainers with unprecedented performance data and insights, creating an entirely new standard for personalized fitness and physical rehabilitation. All of this is enabled by a total reinvention of resistance training called 3D Resistance. Training power and acceleration with Proteus’ patented 3D Resistance can be safer, more efficient, and more effective than traditional resistance training tools in many cases. I’ve been a big fan of Proteus for the past few years. We have a unit in both Cressey Sports Performance facilities, and actually helped to develop the Cressey Power test for rotational athletes. The information we’ve gathered from this testing has been an absolute game-changer in helping us to more optimally program for our athletes. Additionally, as a training initiative, work on the Proteus has allowed us to train different points on the force-velocity curve in rotational patterns in ways that medicine ball work never could.
You can learn more about them by listening to Episode 106 of the Elite Baseball Development Podcast, or by heading to www.ProteusMotion.com/elite.
