    Think specificity when training. Nothing happens on the feild in slow motion, so i would focus on all olympic style lifts (power core exercises), and make assistance exercises secondary.
    M, W, F
    Hang Cleans
    Push Jerk
    Power Pulls
    Front Squat
    Assistance exercises
    Woodchops, etc for your abs and lower back. A strong core/torso will help with bat speed and strength.
    Also, you should be able to perform around 8 reps with 80% of your 1RM.
    Shoot for >85% of 1RM and < 6 reps when training for strength. Same goes for week #3, 70% should get you 10 reps. If you are using these for warm-ups, thats fine, but don't include them into working sets. Stick with the above percentages and reps for strength and I think you will be better off. Your total volume looks fine in reference to your sets for each exercise. Let me know any questions

    True, but he is training for baseball. Train your metabolic energy system that you will be using during games. Explosiveness. High intensity, short duration.

    I think you're overcomplicating things. Pick two or three basic moves per bodypart and go with that.

    Probably shouldn't have suggested the more advanced lift being that you are only 16. Your more basic movements you mentioned will provide an excellent base (squats, bench, presses, rows). On wed, put military press before your chest flyes. I would put calf raises on down the list. Fatigued calves could inhibit force production on your split presses. I think your workout will provide adequate rest if you nutrition is precise (Check out the diet forum for that info) also, you are doing low volume training, i.e; 1 - 2 exercises per bodypart. Your periodization needs work. Maybe 4 week mesocycles. Use 80% - 90% 1RM, this should provide better strength results. Do you train w/ a partner? Try some upper body plyometrics for your core!!
    These are just my opinions, I have worked with collegiate baseball teams, however, professional opinions vary greatly. Word of advice: Focus on your performance more than anything. A 400lb bench does nothing if you can't hit the ball!!

    Hey glovework. I am going to call my old boss. Head strength and conditioning coach and see if he will email me templates of what he has his kids doing. This guy is good and he trains the 6th fastest 100 meter sprinter in the US!!

    Great posts Hypertrophy!My only concern is his age. Going too heavy on compound movements may not me ideal for an adolecent... age is deffinitly a training factor...

    Totally agree with you Warrior, starting writting and didn't even look at his youth! I did pick high intensities for a young one. If you do the high intensity, make sure you talk to a fitness professional or read an educational book on proper form during heavy compound movements.
    Essentials of strength and conditioning is great!! (NSCA)

    Thats almost a full body workout three days a week. You wont gain $hit as far as muscle mass. Do one or two different muscle groups per day, max. And go to the gym 5 days a week. If you want to keep that 3 day a week thing then do two groups per day. Shoulders/Bi, Chest/Tri are good groups I've done. I wouldnt do deadlift and squats in the same day if I had a gun to my head. Back and Legs deffinetly need separate days.
