Carmine Pagano and Carolina Acceleration have the “Sixth Tool Program” Open House planned for this Sunday

“SIXTH TOOL PROGRAM” OPEN HOUSE
(Be sure to look below so you can sse all of the players that this program has helped.)

from Carmine Pagano Carolina Acceleration:

Sunday August 5th from 1-3 pm there will be an “open house” for anyone interested
in the SIXTH TOOL PROGRAM. I will have time to answer any questions and to hand out
registration packets at that time.

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 13th 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.

If you are a returning athlete of the SIXTH TOOL PROGRAM, simply email me back and I
will send you the registration paperwork and the contract and I’ll get you on the
schedule. If you are new to the program we must have a consultation over the phone
(336-299-6266) or in person before registration IS COMPLETE for the SIXTH TOOL
PROGRAM.

Below is some information about the program.

Welcome to the 2012-2013

SIXTH TOOL PROGRAM!!!!

Created at…

Designed specifically for the Development of Baseball/Softball skills 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.

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: Early Off-Season,

Off-Season and Pre-Season.

The Early Off-Season Phase (August – September) 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 of weight training
is 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.

The second phase is the Off-Season phase (October – December). 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, improved rate of force development (very important), improved shoulder
flexibility and increased anaerobic capacity for baseball specific conditioning.

The final phase is the Baseball/Softball SPECIFIC Pre-Season Phase (December – early
February). 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

NEW ADD-ONS TO THE PROGRAM FOR 2012-2013

New to the program this year will be Video analysis of throwing mechanics utilizing
Dartfish, the worlds most advanced video training solution and

New NIKE Strobe Sensory Training program that helps athletes improve focus,
visualization, imagery, attention and balance during the hitting program.
