abstract
The purpose of this study was to compare the kinematic and kinetic differences between different strength and conditioning exercises and baseball throws. Medicine ball exercises and countermovement jump (CMJ) assessments are common within training programs for rotational sports, including baseball. Three-dimensional (3D) biomechanical analyses were performed on collegiate baseball players (n=35) during rotational medicine ball exercises and maximum effort baseball throws. Potential differences between force plate variables from the jump assessments and kinetics during throwing were assessed using univariate regressions with 95% confidence intervals. Kinematic and kinetic variables between rotational medicine ball exercises and baseball throwing were investigated at discrete time points and for continuous time data. The discrete metrics were compared using one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) and Tukey tests. The continuous time signals were assessed using statistical parametric mapping (SPM), specifically with ANOVA and two-way T-tests.
