Softball Offseason Workout Conditioning Plan At Home

Softball workout

The only way to stay ahead of everyone else is to outwork them. That is where your softball offseason workout plan comes in.

This simple 3 day a week program is focusing on upper body strength, legs, and core. Most Softball players we have worked with express an interest in increasing their upper body strength. This makes sense for batting and throwing. But strong arms are not all you need to do those things. Legs and core come into play as well.

Try our 3 days a week workout program designed for High School players for 30 days. This is something you want to do before the season starts and even during voluntary workouts.

Our weekly program requires very little gym equipment and can be done at home in under 30 minutes.

First, we will break things out by Monday, Wednesday, and Friday(Vanity Day). Resting over the weekend but if you have a chance to do some light cardio. We recommend a 20-minute jog around the neighborhood or treadmill work to keep your cardio for slipping. You don’t want to be huffing and puffing during tryouts. The coaches want to see you in shape and ready to go.

Remember this is in addition to you practicing your game. If it’s nice out, get out and throw the ball for 20 minutes.

For a Softball player, we want to focus on 3 aspects during the offseason. Upper body strength, legs(for power) and core.
