• Assume athletic stance, holding dumbbells at side [or wearing weighted vest]

• Drive up and step forward with left leg, lowering into lunge position
• Repeat continuously for specified reps

Sets/Reps: 3x10 each leg

Gillett: This works glute and hip strength. We really want to make sure [both] are strong heading into the season. The glutes are where a pitcher generates his power. If they’re not strong, the hamstrings are at risk of injury.
