A year filled with ‘good habits’, SSG Choi Ji-hoon and Park Seong-han, winners of ‘fighting with themselves’ 

The reason why Choi Ji-hoon (26) and Park Seong-han (25) grew up as the main pillars of SSG Landers was their efforts to pay attention to their lifestyle. ‘Eat well and sleep well’ is very important for baseball players who play 6 days a week for 6-7 months. Small lifestyle changes can have a big impact on athletic performance. This is the reason why many players choose an exercise method that suits them and keep it throughout the season or pay attention to even trivial lifestyle habits to manage their physical condition.

In the long-term race of 144 games, numerous variables follow. Starting with eating, there are many big and small temptations. At the club level, we pay special attention to the condition management of the players, but steady results are only made by the patience and efforts of the individual players. 메이저사이트

The results of Choi Ji-hoon and Park Seong-han last year also came from their own will. Choi Ji-hoon said, “Last season, I maintained my weight well. He usually lost about 6-8kg during the season. By the way, he maintained 77 to 78 kg. When I’m usually in the late 70kg range or early 80kg range, I’m in good condition and my strength is transmitted well.” Park Seong-han said, “Before, I thought, ‘I seem to have learned my eating habits and lifestyle well.’ However, he changed his mind as his stamina gradually declined. He judged that there was a problem in life. The biggest influence on my performance last year was sleep. While keeping the set sleeping hours, I had to follow the eating habits that changed accordingly.”

These two people tried to make and keep a lifestyle, not just a simple exercise routine. In the process of looking into myself once again, my self-control increased. Park Seong-han said, “I had to change my eating pattern because I kept my sleeping habits, but what kind of food he ate was also important. In fact, he likes rice or flour, but he refrained from it during the season. He made it a habit to keep his body light and strong without overeating.” Choi Ji-hoon said, “I tend to have more muscle mass than fat. I couldn’t skip weight training, and I had to eat well,” he said. “I refrained from what I liked during the season. The stress was also relieved by being good at baseball at the baseball field. I felt that it was very difficult to live all of this.”Now they are irreplaceable players of SSG. Choi Ji-hoon ranked 1st in the team and 4th overall with a WAR of 5.48 last year. Park’s WAR of 4.02 was third on the team and second among all shortstops. Nothing motivates me more than the results of last year. SSG senior conditioning coach Park Chang-min said, “(Choi) Ji-hoon and (Park) Seong-han also have a lot of greed to do well. He felt that his grades improved when he prepared well, and he knows well that he must be prepared to perform well. Even during the off-season, the participation rate of the two friends is very high,” he said. Thanks to keeping this lifestyle for several years, the trend of physical growth is also clear.”
