"You better do a Power Snatch to develop the shoulders in a multi-joint situation. If you do a single joint exercise, you will end up with an imbalance."<br>The softball team trained three days per week during the off-season and twice per week during the in-season.

"Don't do it," she states emphatically. "Do only short sprints." Coach Stone expected the players would do better on their 300-yard shuttle run even though they did only short sprints (20-40) yards).
