Stretching and Listening to His Body
The Hardship of a Season with 162 Games Collapses In his ninth season, Anthony says his value for stretching has become increasingly important over time: "I think so 'It's only more when I know my body more and the importance of stretching now compared to a few years ago,' says Rizzo All About Prevention: You want to play, be healthy and you do not want to get hurt They want to play in the field in order to be able to produce. "
Part of his process during the season is to know when to lean to the limit in the gym and to know when to listen to the signs of fatigue and just grab them. "It will be easier to work out on days when we are exercising in the gym," says Rizzo, who is also a sports investor for BodyArmor sports drinks. "Some days we just do cardio. Some days we do not go anymore, we only have to rest. It all depends on the schedule and the operations, but you must be in harmony with your body. There are days when you can train well, there are days when you can not exercise. To play baseball for a long time, you really need to make sure you take care of yourself and get it right. "

There is no better substitute for a racket cage or better yet, to step on the plate and make live moves with movement, but Rizzo has been concentrating on an exercise in the gym throughout his career in Major League Baseball to simulate his momentum in the field: the cable pot.
It's best to mimic the momentum at that very moment, "says Anthony "The core motion you get out of it is similar to normal swinging, it's pretty much accurate with the same muscles as you when you swing." Kabelchops helped Anthony find contact and strength – the slugger has scored at least 156 goals, 25 home runs and 101 RBI in each of his last four seasons.
