[h5]Interview with former US Navy SEAL, Brad McLeod[/h5]

So in my last article I talked all about the mental game of pitching, specifically things you can do to improve your focus and stay calm and relaxed on the mound. If you missed it, you can check it out here:

The Mental Game of Pitching (Part II): Train Your Brain

In the article I mention how the Navy SEALs have begun using meditation in their training. Well, turns out, mental training has always been a big part of the SEAL program…

The other night I was able to catch up with former Navy SEAL, and founder of SEALgrinderPT.com, Brad McLeod. In this interview, Brad shares some of his lessons on Mental Toughness and what it takes to reach your goals.

[h5]Why do pitchers who should play college baseball slip through the cracks?[/h5] [h5]What are the 3 Big Pitfalls to avoid in the college recruiting process?[/h5]

If you have questions about the college recruiting process, believe me, you’re not alone. The process can be challenging, confusing, and flat out overwhelming.

But if you’re serious about playing at the next level, your ability to navigate this process can make or break your chances to play college baseball.

Last night I was joined by Justin Cronk, Founder of Diamond College Advisory Team (DCAT), and we put together an information packed webinar for you.

Justin was amazing and covered a ton of ground in his presentation. He’s an absolute first class guy, and I challenge you to find anyone better when it comes to navigating the college recruiting landscape.

If you want to play baseball in college, or if your son plays baseball
then this webinar is absolute must-see material!

People pay Justin good money for his knowledge and expertise, but he’s sharing all this great info with you completely free.

So you don’t want to miss this! Thanks Justin, you are the man!

“The Diamond College Advisory Team (“DCAT”) is the premier college advisory program in the country for aspiring college student-athletes and their families.”

“The game of baseball has been the same for over 100 years. The college recruiting process, however, has changed immensely. We found that Justin Cronk and DCAT were hugely beneficial to us in navigating this whole college process. Without his expertise, we don’t know where we would have been.” – Craig Biggio, 7-time MLB All-Star

In my last article, I talked about the questions I’ve been getting from parents and pitchers concerned about forearm and elbow soreness. Well if you liked that, you need to check out today’s video.

The other day, I was able to catch up with Strength Coach and Grip Strength Specialist, Jedd Johnson. Jedd’s a former college pitcher who turned to competing in Strong Man competitions, and now teaches athletes how to become super strong and powerful.

Watch this video to hear Jedd’s awesome forearm training tips, including:

Note: Jedd swears he wasn’t holed up in a bunker for this interview.
Like me, he has small kids and was hiding out so he wouldn’t disturb them.
(though I think he really just wanted to look extra intimidating)
