Pregame: Are “Early Outs” for You?

There’s a term in the baseball community called “early outs” that describes practice before the scheduled practice. Keep in mind that the professional baseball schedule is essentially a daily occurrence. When you play a game everyday, what most sports call “practice” during the season becomes a pre-game routine. 

“Early outs” is an optional practice session before the team is due to report to the ballpark. It’s a specific time for players to work on their specific, non-general needs. If you’re a hitter struggling to hit well to the opposite field? You’d come to early outs and accumulate reps and do drills to fine tune this. Nursing a wonky hamstring? Early outs is where you can get extra treatment and nurture your healing journey. 

Gym culture supports the concept of “early outs”. 

Frankly, many students have these needs. If you’re reading this and you need extra time to get your glutes firing or you’re working through psoas (hip flexor) issues from driving and sitting in a desk, “early outs” in the gym is where you get your extra specific routines in. 

The coached class session, like an MLB practice, is a team sport. If you’ve got individual needs, get with a coach to design your “early outs” routine today!
