Discussion: "Weight Transfer, A Mistunderstood Key to Explosive Hip Rotation" Swing Makeover 22

Like the points you make Tim..Eurskine..It really seems to vary so much from player to player. Many say utrip they feel a need to catch up to a fast utrip pitch, as for bat size, Connell swings like a 27 balanced and hes a beast, yet a smaller but still powerful Blackburn swings a 29 endload, so it just varies so much. I think if a senior has good hips and legs, they do more of the work and are stronger muscles, so if you can go heavier for senior play, mass in a bat helps if you can handle it.

Tim has good points, but to clarify what we teach, we often refer to a good swing as a natural power swing, with a rotational emphasis on the hips. In truth, if you look at any good swing, there is really no rotational or linear, its a combination. Coil is rotational, stride is linear, hips and body rotate, but as they do there is an extension of the arms which is linear within the rotation of the body, and the torqueing of the wrists is rotational. All the elements need to be in balance. We put emphasis on the hip and body rotation as a teaching point, because its what we see break down the quickest with the hitter using only upper body and arms.

Roger, had a lot of fun at Cape Coral and certainly you showed us why you are a Hall of Famer...great job and nice to see you again and that powerful swing. Wayne, yep, I know what your saying about rotation being hard on back...I have a herniated L5 disk so I feel your pain..but if a hitter wants consistency and power...we have to use the hips and this can be painful on the back. I guess if its bad enough...a linear punch swing is about all an athlete can do, if you can't swing in an arc. I really can't find any way to get the consistency and line drive power in tandem, without using hip rotation and a rotational swing.

Use of Evil BP balls and Outdoor Tee work, are really as good as it gets for improving technique. Many do not use the tee. This is a good basic look at how much this can help. Last episode of season 2. Happy thanksgiving.

Discussion: DeMarini Senior ONE Endload

The balanced is good but a totally different bat than the endload...not as lively in my opinion.. A lot of good senior sticks out there today for sure.

Discussion: DeMarini Senior ONE Endload

Its too bad more hitters haven't tried this bat. I believe its the longest, highest performing bat I have swung for exit speed and distance. It seems like most are touting the new bats as having 1000 plus swings. I think for most hitters, the Demarini endload will last 300-900 swings...but it gets really good after 100 plus swings. If your looking for a high performance bat...try this one. I would rather have a bat that breaks in sooner and lasts a reasonable amount of swings but with high performance. The candle that burns twice as hot, lasts half as long. What good are extra swings, if they are not at the highest performance. Like you guys, i think this bat is really awesome.

Discussion: "Weight Transfer, A Mistunderstood Key to Explosive Hip Rotation" Swing Makeover 22

Many hitters do not understand completely how the weight transfer works. WE developed a Drill that more easily helps hitters understand and pratice the transition from the stride, weight transfer and finally to hip rotation. Once we are not buried on the back leg anymore, we are able to keep our body angle more correct, and drive the ball to the outfield gaps, as we rotate more easily and powerfully. The episode also shows several hitters at the SSUSA worlds, talking about how they fine tuned mechanics and excelled at the October event. All episodes are an sportstechnique.com

Discussion: Single Drill Teaches Perfect Wrist Snap. Pros discuss wrist snap SM#19

The wrist snap always is so subtle and complex to try and explain and do consistently..they must direct the power of the hips and body..thru the forearms and wrists to the bat head, and to do so to consistently strike the part of the ball you desire. Bret came up with a simple drill that takes the bat head from a to b and allows this movement to let you feel and learn the muscle memory of how the wrists should move. This is the first time I think the wrist snap has been described and taught, that allows us who don't do it naturally, to get the feel the pros do. Top pros discuss their feeling of wrist snap at the end. All of the series Swing Makeover can be seen for free off the website at www.sportstechnique.com look under swing makeover tab

Discussion: A $3 Rotational Trainer you can make, that Eliminates Lunging..Swing Makeover #18

Thought I would share a link to this new Swing Makeover episode. We see a ton of rec swings, as well as in our own, where the lead shoulder chases ahead and down past the rotation and angle of the hips. This is an inexpensive tool you can make, to train the hips and shoulders to rotate at the same angle...and speed. it really does a nice job making the rotation tighter, the bat speed faster and the consistency better.
