Post Game fitness? Help me out on this...

Look, I can't be the only one who's spending too much time on the Show trying to grind out Mantle and what-not...
Typically at work, I'm walking around a few miles, and I'm up and about. Since this quarantine mess, I've decided not to let a sedentary lifestyle take over. Additionally, I'm not sure what your gym space situation is like with things beginning to reopen.

Does anyone have any ideas (or has already been doing something) for results in a game? Give me some suggestions, and maybe help out someone else from rapidly developing some heart disease lol. I've already cut out the carbonated beverages and adjusted my diet.

I'm looking for suggestions/ideas of something like... 5 push-ups per K... 10 crunches per HR given up... so on and so forth...

What you got?!

You could give this a try.

Lol not exactly what I'm lookin for. Kind of trying to do something a little more rewards/consequences-based to do at the end of the game. I'm not going to be lunging and junk when I'm playing. I already haven't had great outcomes as is. I'm sure that would compound it lol

If your not willing to put the work in over a substantial amount of time, than you will not get the results you want. It took me about 5-6 years of lifting and proper diet to get to a 1115 total at 175 lbs. Sounds like you want to put one foot in the water and try to swim, it doesn’t work like that. You have to fully commit to it to get the wanted results. If your serious about it, p.m. me and I’ll point you in the right direction.

Well, I borrowed a couple of kettle bells and slam balls from work. And I totally agree with what you're saying. Diet and cardio definitely are the two biggest proponents to handling body comp. I'm just trying to throw something in there so I'm not sitting for extended periods of time.

This is what I had "drafted":

  • 1 RBI allowed = 20 Push-Ups
  • HR allowed = 20 Crunches
  • 1 Hit = 5 Tricep Ext
  • Each time I strikeout = 5 Curls
  • XBHs = 30 Sec. Mtn Climbers (Although I did flutter kicks with holding KB overhead)
  • BB allowed = 30 Sec. Squats

I'm sure there's more I could add to that to make it more intense to go along with what you're saying. If I could fashion it to be at least a 15-20 min HIIT, that would probably be even better.
What do you think? In which ways would you tweak it? And thanks for your interest and input! I need to do something to go more in the right direction.

This isn’t going to work. You need to forget about the game. What you are proposing is inconsistent workouts that will yield inconsistent results. You need to be able to scientifically track your results. This includes caloric intake and workouts themselves. Rest is also just as important as the workout and diet themselves for the strength and hypertrophy results you seek. You seem like your a beginner and if your actually serious about it than you need to do a lot of research so that you can have a better understanding of how the human body works.

I believe he's trying to avoid a heart attack, not bench 405. I think it's a great idea and even if it's not optimal, anything worth doing is worth doing poorly. Excellent idea, it's fun and a great solution to a problem that's becoming more and more common the longer the world is on lockdown. Good luck! @wingo18

I’m a firm believer that anything is better than nothing, as long as you do it consistently. Even just 25 push-ups after every game would yield benefits eventually.

I can appreciate your zeal, but you're being a little uncompromising. What works for you may not work for others. There's a lot of subjection when it comes to fitness. For example, you're not going to recommend someone to go into ketosis when they have kidney issues.

I'm a former NCAA athlete and I have a degree in Exercise Science. You don't lose type II muscle fibers. It's real easy for me to feel a transient hypertrophy, because I'm decently active during normal operation of my job (come on, I'm a PE teacher lol). Can you show research that says you have to have a consistent workout? Yes, if you're building muscle for the first time in your life; your body has to make those connections. When I'm teaching a middle schooler how to hang clean, you have to be persistent and systematic for those reasons--muscle memory. And obviously, it (my little workout suggestion) can be adjusted to fit time, because I agree that doing something for 5 minutes and taking a 35 minute break gets you nowhere... But that's not at all what I'm saying. How many 1-0 games do you have where there are no HRs, walks, or XBHs and so on? Not many. So, it's going to take some time.

Think of it this way... I have no idea where exactly you're located, but if we were both told to go to Chicago, we wouldn't follow the same directions. You're obviously in a different place than I am right now. Genetics will never allow me to be 175 lbs. When I went through 6 months of chemo/surgery between my Soph/Junior seasons, I was 185 lbs skin and bones; it's just not possible granted there was probably some catabolysis in that situation...

Yes, you are right, any exercise is better than none. I just think it’s better for people to understand exactly what they are doing and why. Having more knowledge about the subject can only help someone, and if your majoring in exercise science, than you know as well as I do that there is so much misinformation out there on fitness.

This isn’t going to work. You need to forget about the game. What you are proposing is inconsistent workouts that will yield inconsistent results. You need to be able to scientifically track your results. This includes caloric intake and workouts themselves. Rest is also just as important as the workout and diet themselves for the strength and hypertrophy results you seek. You seem like your a beginner and if your actually serious about it than you need to do a lot of research so that you can have a better understanding of how the human body works.

I can appreciate your zeal, but you're being a little uncompromising. What works for you may not work for others. There's a lot of subjection when it comes to fitness. For example, you're not going to recommend someone to go into ketosis when they have kidney issues.

I'm a former NCAA athlete and I have a degree in Exercise Science. You don't lose type II muscle fibers. It's real easy for me to feel a transient hypertrophy, because I'm decently active during normal operation of my job (come on, I'm a PE teacher lol). Can you show research that says you have to have a consistent workout? Yes, if you're building muscle for the first time in your life; your body has to make those connections. When I'm teaching a middle schooler how to hang clean, you have to be persistent and systematic for those reasons--muscle memory. And obviously, it (my little workout suggestion) can be adjusted to fit time, because I agree that doing something for 5 minutes and taking a 35 minute break gets you nowhere... But that's not at all what I'm saying. How many 1-0 games do you have where there are no HRs, walks, or XBHs and so on? Not many. So, it's going to take some time.

Think of it this way... I have no idea where exactly you're located, but if we were both told to go to Chicago, we wouldn't follow the same directions. You're obviously in a different place than I am right now. Genetics will never allow me to be 175 lbs. When I went through 6 months of chemo/surgery between my Soph/Junior seasons, I was 185 lbs skin and bones; it's just not possible granted there was probably some catabolysis in that situation...

Yes, I could show you research as why a consistent workout is important for strength and hypertrophic results, but that would require me to take more time than I am willing to go back and find the several scientific studies that prove this. They have already found out through scientific studies the optimal number of reps, sets and at what RPE that each muscle fiber responds to the best. They have also found out what lifts to do and how to do them (such as grip positions and angles) to accomplish these optimal results. I understand that you are trying to make the most of your time while playing so I will leave you with this. Whatever you decide to do, if you keep it around an RPE 7, than you will get positive results as long as your not starving your body of proper macronutrients. The results may not be great because of the circumstances, but yes, it is better than doing nothing.

I like to drink green tea while I'm playing. I've noticed that stringing full glasses of water together before and after games helps hydrate. I've also started increasing the number of glasses of water I drink daily to 10 with the weather getting warmer, sometimes exceeding 20.
