    Weights exercises for batsman

    Seeing as now I've stopped bowling, what are the best weights exercises to do for batting to improve strength specific to batting? Like, the power through the shots, running between the wickets, etc.

    I had this when I was bowling:

    Upper:
    Push ups
    Bench press
    Deadlifts
    Shoulder Press
    Chest flies
    Ball crunches

    Lower:
    BW squats
    Squats
    BW lunges
    Lunges
    Leg lifts
    Ball crunches
    Sprints

    Should I keep the same, or is there useless exercises there for batting, and really good ones missing?

    Mate if you are any good just don't get out quickly so you do enough exercise running between wickets.

    Getting sick of people telling me not to do something that is perfectly safe and beneficial to my cricket.

    Erm, if you are a batsman, then I'd have said that although getting out early is perfectly safe, it's not that beneficial to your cricket.

    That doesn't matter anymore, as I go to rep training, and find out I'm opening the batting, which is awesome, but I'm bowling first change, because the team has 2 seamers and 4 spinners. So basically, the coach needs me to bowl, even though I am rubbish.

    You don't really need to change too much. Strength and power are strength and power whether you bat or bowl.

    More generally I would look at more injury prevention type exercises like hip mobility, core stabilisation (like planks or pallof presses) and flexibility work.

    I'd love to but there's no way I have that kind of money. Thanks though.
