D.J. Jackson owner of D.J. Jackson Sports Training and Two Hands Pro
DJ headed to La Cienega Park in Beverly Hills to train Milo, his up and coming senior athlete from a high school in Los Angeles, CA. Milo and Coach DJ have been working together once a week to work on baseball training. When they first meet in the summer of 2018, Milo contacted Coach DJ with the goal on becoming a better baseball player so he can play baseball in college. So, today’s objective was to continue coach D.J.'s program with new preseason adjustments that includes a lighter load on the muscles, more focus on agility, core strengthening and conditioning. We have also included specific baseball training drills such as taking reps at his position using Two Hands Pro Defensive Training Tool and also working on proper mechanical start technique for stealing bases. After a strong two hour session, Milo and DJ parted ways. DJ had this to say
“At the beginning of 2019 I really started to see how all the hard work from the last 6 months have resulted in tremendous strength gains while have translated to him being a better athlete on the field and at the plate.”
Here is a sample of the workout regiment Coach D.J. put Milo through on this beautiful day.
