SKLZ has an array of training tools that will help players of all ages stay in baseball mode until league play is allowed to resume.
Athletes are slowly crawling out of the worst period sports has ever had to endure. Not even during major wars have athletic activities been completely put on pause like it’s been the case these past few months.
Not just the pros, but absolutely no organized amateur sports were able to schedule regular events during this unprecedented international sanitary crisis. Leagues, parks and gyms had to shut down and everyone was told to stay home. This makes it very difficult for any athlete trying to maintain any kind of game shape, whatever the sport.
If you’re a baseball or softball player, you’ll want to start your own solo training camp to prepare for a possible abbreviated 2020 season. Baseball Town has the ideal brand of products for you: SKLZ.
SPECIALIZED IN OFF-FIELD TRAINING
Founded in 2002, SKLZ (pronounced “skills”) offers a line of products designed to prepare athletes for the physical demands of their specific sport. You know what they say: "You don’t play sports to get in shape, you get in shape to play your sport," and that’s what SKLZ wants to help you accomplish.
They have a wide variety of baseball specific training tools and gadgets that can help you build your own personal spring training regimen. Here are the ones I strongly recommend:
SKLZ Pitchback Youth:
For kids who want to improve basic defensive skills, this is all they need. Install this rebound net in the backyard and Junior can have his own throwing partner, pitching catcher with strike zone or pop fly/grounder generator. Because mom and dad can’t be there all the time to play catch…
SKLZ Pro Tee:
Simply the best training tee out there. Sturdy and durable with an 8 lb base, this tee is easy to adjust to anyone’s ideal height. After this long hiatus, you’ll want to get back to the basics and a tee helps you focus strictly on swing mechanics. Just don’t forget to also get the practice net! Your neighbors will thank you.
SKLZ Weighted Baseballs 2PK:
As I’ve explained in my last blog, more and more hitters are attacking pitchers with the launch angle approach. This puts a renewed emphasis on power pitching and the 4-seam fastball. The best way for a pitcher to develop a powerful arm is to train with weighted balls. The set includes a 10oz and a 12oz ball.
SKLZ Speed Chute:
Another power training tool, but for your legs. Most of the baseball specific biomechanics are lower body dependant. Power in the pitching motion and hitting swing is generated predominantly by the legs and small core muscles. Both of them are fully engaged when sprinting with this Speed Chute strapped to your back, since it provides up to 30 lbs of resistance.
SKLZ Elevation Ladder:
SKLZ offers a variety of different ladder tools, but this one is a complete combination of quickness and agility training for your feet and legs. You’ll also get a healthy dose of cardio training from a wide range of exercises that can be performed with this personal torture gadget.
