Swing for the Fences … a Fun Shoulder Warm Up

SwingingAlthough I’m middle-aged, I have very young children … yes, I’m blessed :)  One of the great things about young children is they never tire of running, jumping and playing.  It’s great motivation for me and I try to join in with whatever they’re doing … it’s great fun.

All this fun reminded me of how much I loved playing baseball.  Since I love hitting a tire with a sledge hammer … plus it’s a great full-body workout, I thought it would be a great idea to incorporate a baseball-type swing into my training.  Here’s the result:

Here’s what I like about horizontal swinging:

  • it’s fun
  • it’s explosive
  • it’s a great way to develop the hip rotation necessary for a powerful swing
  • it’s a full-body workout
  • it’s a great shoulder warm up
  • did I mention it’s fun !!
