Importance of In Season Maintenance

 

I’d like to talk to you about the importance of in season maintenance work when it comes to softball strength conditioning.  A lot of softball players and teams spend an awful amount of work during the off-season building themselves up.  Anything ranging from skills work, pitching, fielding, hitting to fitness work also speed, agility, strength, and power work.  Then season starts, they’re in great shape, their skills are excellent but as soon as the season starts, they stop doing anything.  Therefore, it comes down to playing many games and doing some practices when you have the time.

Softball is a technical sport, meaning you need to spend a lot of time on the technical side of things.  Such as practicing hitting, fielding and in addition to doing any kind of a tactical and strength work, offensive, and defensive strategies.  Therefore, there is very little time if any time left at all to do any kind of fitness work anymore.

Many people believe that because you play the game and spend a lot of time practicing, when you have the time to practice that does maintain what you have built in the off-season.  That’s a big mistake.  You see, fitness is pretty much a use it or lose it element.  In other words, if you don’t keep doing fitness work you start losing it.

Of course, there’s a certain element of maintenance when you do a lot of practices and games.  However, nothing that you think it would be in terms of the amount you retain.  You might be good at jumps because you do many jumps on the bases.  In addition, some of the sprinting is being maintained obviously, some of the throwing power, hitting power, because you do many throws and hitting but it’s not that much.  You end up losing a lot of your fitness level over the course of the long season.
