Incorporating ample amounts of rotational power training alongside "traditional" strength training programs is one of the best ways to "play for the tie" from a long-term movement quality standpoint. (1/3)
Lots of heavy bilateral work (squats, deadlifts, bench presses) typically reduces rotational capacity, but throwing med balls, doing rotational rows, changing directions, etc. is a means of offsetting this dropoff. (2/3)
Most athletes have rotational proficiency in the teenage years, so training rotation in the 20s and 30s is a good training strategy for longer term success. It's easier to do a little and maintain it than it is to lose it and try to get it back. (3/3)
