Chicago Cubs outfielder Kyle Schwarber had a down year in 2017 – he even spent some time in the minors after having struggled during the summer.
After the season, Schwarber decided that he would do whatever he could during the off-season to prepare for the 2018 season – and it began by getting his body in the best shape possible.
I’d highly recommend you check out each video on the ESPN site here…..
The video/article gives perfect examples of specific drills that Schwarber does to get himself ready for the 2018 season.
Of course, Kyle is a professional athlete and has the time and resources to make this happen (and I completely understand that most youth and high-school players do not) – but don’t miss the point here.
Schwarber has a detailed plan and sticks to it months prior to the season. He’s set goals for himself and will not be denied.
Do you have a plan to get ready for 2018? Strengthening, conditioning, flexibility, as well as skill related work?
