Even though I have not had time to play organized softball I still managed to work out on a regular basis including stretching..I do cardio 3 to 4 times a week... I warm up with 5 mins. on the eliptical then 2 miles on the treadmill @ 8mph with 1/4 mile sprints at 10 to 12mph plus 2 miles on the stationary bike with a moderate resistance ...I do weights twice a week for 1 1/2 hrs. for my lower body I do 3 sets of 40 squats with 210 lbs...3 sets of 100 calf raises same weight...3 sets of leg curls with 85 lbs...reverse leg curls with 75 lbs...I do a full upper body workout including 3 sets of bench press 8 to 10 reps with 150 lbs...I weigh 175 lbs with a 34 concern is getting my arm and swing back and most important doing it without getting hurt...thanks Sam

I am 58 years old and have not thrown a softball or picked up a bat in 30 years....I now have time to play again and would like to find a team next summer....I am in good shape with no past serious injuries....what type of program should I use to get my arm back in shape? I know throwing the long ball and just playing catch will help the long and how often should I do each of these for best results? Any tips on a program to help get my swing back?
