Faster bat speed, improved hitting mechanics, and quicker reaction time for baseball and softball batters. Youth, high school, college and professional players — scroll down this page to see the results of Swingtraining.net’s instructional hitting programs…
Professional Baseball Off-Season Training Program
This is a player in the Chicago Cubs organization – AA level. He increased his bat speed by 10+ mph within our first month of training. We worked extensively on quick, efficient rotation to unload the bat, as well as connecting the arms/hands to that rotation. Instead of relying mainly on his hands/arms to move the bat, he now does most of the work with his larger muscles, which allows his arms/hands to transfer more energy to the bat while also allowing the bat to find its natural swing plane.
College Baseball Swing Training
This is a great story about a hard-working, athletic player who got a good video analysis and was able to adjust his swing mechanics and hitting routine accordingly. Just click the picture and look at his stats!
This is one of the most drastic improvements I’ve seen in such a very short period of time (8 sessions over 2 weeks). Bat speed work with overload-underload bats, reaction and timing training, several different drills for rotation and swing path…we did it all!
High School Baseball Bat Speed Program
This player increased his bat speed by 12-14 mph training 2x/week over 6 weeks. His initial gain, however, came from creating a longer swing so we had to focus on quickness. Each swing in this clip is the same bat speed – the difference is how the body creates the bat speed. On the left is a longer, dragging swing dominated by the arms, but more efficient rotation allows him to generate the same amount of bat speed in much less time on the right. It’s also important to point out that the clip on the left comes from a full load/stride, where he is “just turning” on the right (no stride). This is a great illustration of a player learning to use his body more effectively to swing the bat.
High School Softball
“Hey Jeff, hope you’re doing well. Just wanted to let you know that I made first team all county this year and lead my team in doubles and almost tied the school record for homeruns, all thanks to you.”
We create and measure training & practice situations where a player has to achieve a certain goal in order to improve. Watch this young player execute out quickness drill – his swing is shorter and creates more bat speed without even using his stride. How? By using the entire body to generate and transfer power more efficiently…all from a simple drill.
