7th Inning Stretch
Rehabilitating the injured players of the Houston Astros is just another day at work for this week’s guest, Terrence Kennell [@tkennellphysprep]. With a background in rugby, he’s no stranger to banged up athletes but some injuries in baseball are as specified as the positions themselves. TK gives an insider’s take on training for the sport and the culture of the team. Working with rookies, seasoned pros, and everything in between, he gives us insight on the players’ interaction. TK is also a well traveled bro who trades stories with The Crew about shenanigans abroad.
If you thought baseball games were sparsely attended before the pandemic, you would be correct. Of course, no disrespect to this week’s guest, TK, aka Terrence Kennell who serves as Houston Astros S&C Rehab Coordinator. In this episode you’ll find out just how in shape you need to be to play baseball. You can be a slob and be a pitcher, sure, but can you be a genetic trashcan and be an outfielder? While making fun of America’s pastime has always been Power Athletes favorite pastime, we truly have an appreciation for these specified athletes. Hear TK discuss the player dynamics, common injuries, and legends like a 17 year old Domincan throwing an orange 90 mph while barefoot.
