 “All the kids are falling down. enough to vomit… ”

Hanwha catcher Choi Jae-hoon (34) started training one by one, and the number of people in the training increased to 10 before he knew it. As more people were added, the exercise intensity increased. It sounds really bad. 

Ten Hanwha players, including Choi Jae-hoon, are training together at a personal training center in Daejeon during the inactive period. Choi Jae-hoon and several Hanwha players go to the center every season, and this winter more players than ever before are sweating together, including pitchers Ryu Hee-un, Jeong Yi-hwang, Kim Ki-joong, Kim Gyu-yeon, infielders Oh Seon-jin, Lee Sung-gon, Jeong Eun-won, and outfielders Jang Un-ho and Lee Won-seok. . 

Jeong Eun-won, who was training individually at home in Incheon, and Jeong Yi-hwang and Lee Won-seok, who had been to Geelong Korea in Australia, joined the team in January and became 10 members. In the morning, after technical training at the Daejeon baseball field, he goes to the center in the afternoon to train his body through intensive physical exercise. 

Choi Jae-hoon said, “I took the juniors who came out of the baseball field to the center one by one, and there were 10 people before I knew it. If you exercise alone, even if it is a little difficult, you will take a break or compromise. If you have people by your side to look after you, you can do it right. I’m working out so hard that everyone collapses and vomits.”  바카라

It’s called ‘hull strength post-technology’. Building up your body in advance in the off-season gives you the basic stamina to comfortably spend a season, and it also helps to improve your skills. With the help of the center trainer, a training program was systematically designed according to the characteristics of the position. Training 6 days a week, Thursday and Friday are running days. Pitchers develop lower body strength by running long distances, and fielders develop quickness by running quickly over short distances. On the rest of the week, I strengthen my strength and muscular endurance with various weight training and various bare-body exercises. 

Junior players who said they were confident in heavy weights also stuck out their tongues. “I’ve never done a workout like this before. I thought I was strong, but it turned out that I was a weakling.” Choi Jae-hoon said, “It’s not that my juniors didn’t exercise, it’s because they didn’t reach their limit. Strength training, weights, and bare-body exercises are maxed out. At first, everything was so difficult that I collapsed and went to the bathroom to throw up. But I don’t give up and I follow little by little and I see things getting better.” 

Among the members, there are seniors, but most of them are low-salaried players. With the help of Choi Jae-hoon, the juniors do not have to pay for exercise. Choi Jae-hoon said, “The trainer who has been with me for a long time is passionately helping me at no additional cost. All I spend is a sauna after exercise and the cost of eating,” he said. “This year is a really important time for our team and young players. If you do this well, it may be good, but it may not be so. However, I hope that leaving the results immediately and learning how to exercise steadily from now on will continue to help me in my career as an athlete in the future.”
