A couple weeks ago I wrote about a group of 10-year old baseball players I began working with. In one session I had six of them touching their toes who had never done so before.
Well, since then the story has gotten much better.
Last night, one of the players who religiously does my exercises on a daily basis, blasted his first home run over the fence in an all-star game.
Now, this is significant for many reasons. And perhaps the main reason is that this young man wasn’t even hitting the ball deep until a couple weeks ago.
Three nights ago I was talking to my son about him. “I guarantee you that Ethan is doing the exercises I teach when he’s at home,” I said. “He’s not just doing them when I work with the team once a week.”
“How do you know,” my son asked.
“I know,” I said. “I can tell who does them and who doesn’t just by watching the way they move compared to before.”
Well, the night before last I was talking to Ethan’s mother while batting practice was going on. I began to rave about how well her son is hitting the ball. She lit up and told me how he gets up in the morning, on his own, pulls out a mat and begin stretching and doing other exercises I taught.
“Everyday,” I asked.
“Everyday,” she said. “Without fail. On his own. No one is even telling him to do this.”
“I knew it,” I smiled. “And I can tell you he’s the only one on the team who IS doing them everyday.”
“Really,” she said. “How can you tell.”
“All I have to do is watch him move and I know. He’s much more powerful and dynamic than he was before.”
Thus far two boys have hit home runs over the fence for this team – my son being the first.
I predict more will follow very soon if they do what Ethan and my son are doing, i.e. the dynamic stretches in my Combat Stretching program.
So you know, dynamic flexibility training is not getting into a static position, stretching and holding. That type of stretching is also good – but being able to be flexible AS you move is what most people need first.
That’s why the DVD on Dynamic Stretching alone is well worth the amount for the entire series.
Get up each morning and start your day with these stretches and your health, overall sense of well-being and personal power will make a leap for the better.
In your own way, you’ll start knocking home runs as well.
Be sure to get a copy of Combat Stretching NOW – along with all the great bonus items for those who know how to move fast.
