There's a power shift underway in Major League Baseball, but it's not the World Series Champion San Francisco Giants or "dream team" Los Angeles Dodgers seeking to make hardball a West Coast-dominated sport. It's players becoming faster, stronger and, yes, more powerful through training techniques that grow more advanced every year.

STACK has sat in on hundreds of these training sessions, and we've seen every move the pros do to make themselves better athletes. Whether it's a kettlebell lift that improves stability at the plate, a ladder drill that requires players to field a medicine ball like it's a hard grounder, or simple warm-up moves that can make a big difference to a player's flexibility and range of motion on the field, Big Leaguers know how to train smart. And now, thanks to this slideshow, you can, too.

Here are 9 moves that MLB standouts actually perform in their workouts, and that you should add to yours. Think of it as an All-Star lineup of exercises that'll help you reach your true potential.
