    Are you familiar with box squats and how to do them properly (e.g. sitting back onto the box, slight pause, flared knees, etc.)?

    And get down like you're in the bottom of a squat (catcher position) and walk around, you'll feel like a fool but it will help build those hip flexors. Also jump from the position to improve reaction time that is ideal as a catcher. Good luck bro, I got these from my high school baseball coach who fosters tons of college athletes and a couple professional athletes (Brandon Nimmo)

    Maybe if you are afraid of the squat rack or there is some idiot doing curls in it. Otherwise there is no excuse for not including squats or lunges into any leg workout.
