Baseball Players: Become A Power Hitter - Hit More Jacks!

Develop Superior Core Power For Baseball!

The Derek Jeter training program has helped him become one of the most successful and legendary baseball players in modern memory. Quite simply, Jeter is considered the ultimate winner in professional baseball and an incredibly clutch performer.

Jeter was born on June 26, 1974, in Pequannock, New Jersey. He was named the 1992 High School Player of the Year by the American High School Coaches Association, the 1992 Gatorade High School Athlete of the Year, and USA Today's High School Player of the Year. Later that same year, he was drafted by the Yankees with the first selection in the draft. During 1996, his first full season in the majors, his performance helped the Yankees win the World Series against the Braves. Since then, he's seen the Yankees to World Series wins in 1998, 1999, 2000, and finally again in 2009. Jeter is the all-time Yankees hit leader and was named team captain in 2003. One of the few players whose abilities have never been linked with performance-enhancing drug rumors, Jeter will be a first ballot addition to the hall of Fame when he becomes eligible for the honor.

Try the Derek Jeter training program to boost your physical capabilities before engaging in sport-specific baseball training.

Get loose with old-school calisthenics before each training session. Researchers at the United States Military Academy have found that this approach helps you sprint faster, jump higher, and throw harder immediately afterward. Do 30 seconds each of jumping jacks, arm circles, pushups, lunges, and body-weight squats.

Each of the following three super-sets pairs a pushing exercise with a pulling exercise. This helps prevent muscle imbalances that can lead to injuries and builds a symmetrical physique. Do the two moves in each superset back-to-back without taking a breather, and then rest for one minute before progressing to the next superset. Complete three sets.

1) Barbell Squat
Do eight to 12 reps.
2) Dumbbell Deadlift
