Carmine Pagano:
I would like to extend an invitation into my Baseball/Softball Specific Conditioning program, “THE SIXTH TOOL” . The program will begin the week of August 5th 2019 and for the next 3 weeks after that I will be conducting evaluations. This program is designed for the high school ball player that does not play another sport, however I do offer modifications for the multi-sport athlete and for 7th and 8th grade athletes. For the younger athletes (4th, 5th and 6th graders) I have alternative programs available throughout the fall and winter.

In the attachment “SIXTH TOOL INFORMATION” you’ll find a complete overview of when and how the SIXTH TOOL PROGRAM works as well as specific goals that will be attained throughout the program. You’ll also find a list of athletes that have been through the program as well as the staff bio’s.

If you are a “returning” athlete of the SIXTH TOOL PROGRAM, simply email me back and say; “SIGN ME UP”.

New to the program this year will be an online registration process and we will introduce our goggle drive platform data collection, Athlete Management System. All SIXTH TOOL PROGRAM ATHLETES’ will be granted access to a Carolina Acceleration Sports Training goggle drive account, which will host all evaluation data, workout programs, nutrition forms and registration paperwork. Once the paperwork is completed online, we will get the athletes scheduled for their evaluation.

**If you are “new” to the SIXTH TOOL PROGRAM we must have a consultation over the phone (336-299-6266) or in person before registration IS COMPLETE. **

REGISTRATION WILL OPEN ON MONDAY JULY 22ND. Do not hesitate to call me if you have any questions. My staff and I look forward to helping you prepare the CORRECT WAY for your next season!

SIXTH TOOL PROGRAM

Designed specifically for the development of Baseball/Softball skills (however Lacrosse and Soccer players also welcome) during the off-season and pre-season!

This program is the most complete and comprehensive “OFF-SEASON and PRE-SEASON” conditioning program, designed specifically for the baseball and softball player. The primary purpose of the program is to increase overall POWER, help each athlete fulfill their genetic potential and become the most successful player they can be. This is accomplished by training consistently, sensibly and systematically over a designated period of time, in a safe, clean and professional environment.

OUR APPROACH:
The “SIXTH TOOL” Training program uses an organized approach to training that involves progressive cycling of various aspects of a training program during a specific period of time known as periodization.

Our program can be broken down into three phases:
1) Early Off-Season 2) Off-Season and 3) Pre-Season.

Phase 1: Early Off-Season Phase (August 5th – September 27th) is an important time in the athletic calendar. For some, it may serve as a time to rehabilitate from injuries or aches and pains that plagued them through the competitive season. While for others, it may be a time to develop their strength, power flexibility, endurance, work capacity and nutritional habits so that they can come back next season better than ever. During this phase of training the athletes’ begin a basic weight training program 3 days per week for 1 ½ hours per day. Included in that 1 ½ hours is weight training, cardiovascular conditioning, “Core” training and shoulder flexibility training. The MOST IMPORTANT component of the program during this time is the NUTRITIONAL EDUCATION! Each athlete will be provided with current knowledge of the nutritional factors that affect performance.

Goals that will be attained during this time will be: increased lean body mass, increased strength, improved shoulder flexibility and cardiovascular conditioning.

Phase 2: Off-Season Phase (September 30th – November 22nd). During this phase we build upon the goals attained from the previous phase. Now that the athletes are bigger, stronger, in better shape and more stable, we can now move into more specialized weight training movements specific to baseball. We now want that bigger and stronger body producing increased force through more sport specific movements for baseball. During this phase athletes’ continue to train 3 days per week for 1 ½ hours per day.
Goals that will be attained during this time will be: increased lean body mass, increased strength, improved rate of force development (very important), improved shoulder flexibility and increased anaerobic capacity for baseball specific conditioning.

Phase 3 Baseball/Softball SPECIFIC Pre-Season Phase (December 2nd – February 7th). It’s time to put it all together. By this time our athletes are BIGGER, STRONGER, MORE FLEXIBLE, MORE COORDINATED AND IN BETTER SHAPE! This Pre-season phase is dedicated to baseball/softball specific training to include all of the following; specific running speed drills on our Acceleration Super Treadmill (top speed of 30MPH and 40 degree incline), rotational core exercise program, ground base agility and quickness drills on our turf (because we know you don’t play on a treadmill), plyometric drills, Hitting Cord Program, Throwing Cord Program, Shoulder strength and flexibility assessment and exercise program.

Goals that will be attained during this time will be:

increased throwing velocity/consistency by 4-7MPH
increase hitting velocity/consistency by 4-7MPH
decrease sprints times by .20-.40sec by increasing maximum sprinting speed
improve sprinting biomechanics
decrease lateral agility times by .30-.50sec
reduce recovery times by 50% following maximum running

PROGRAM ADD-ONS:

Video analysis will be used for THROWING AND HITTING mechanics utilizing Dartfish, the worlds most advanced video training. Go to the following links to see some videos. These videos were also sent to college coaches and recruiting coordinators.
