Discussion: 2 Color BP balls & Outdoor Tee, Best Tools for Improving Technique..Swing Makeover #24

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

Also BEARS spoof on the Worlds Most POwerful Man.."Stay Endloaded My Friends"

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.

Discussion: Anyone find relief for piriformis syndrome?

I have had for over a year, due to a bad L5 disk. Nerve pinches and fires through this tendon and it cramps deep inside my glutes. It cramps every time I swing, making it hard to be consistent and it cramps about 2 hours after sleep each night. I have tried stretching, and have started chiro...and have an inversion table. All seem to have done little. Has anyone had any luck getting this to subside?

Discussion: How Softball Pro's use Rotational Mechanics to Hit 500 Feet SM#16

https://www.youtube.com/edit?o=U&video_id=TMpd6LsNvSU

We use 6 right handed top major players, to demonstrate how far rotational mechanics have taken the game. These hitters have gone over 500 Feet...such as Connell hitting a ball 575 feet at Petco Park during the Bomber Tour. We show the steps of the swing and action shots of them hitting live and in high speed slow motion to capture the technique. They are so consistent with this swing they can hit the top or bottom of the ball as desired...for basehitting or power hitting.
Robo Blackburn, Kevin Kennington and Greg Connell for the 3 younger guys..Brian Wegman, Jeff Hall, and Johnny McCraw for the older pros. Swing Makeover #16. Shot at Softball magazines spring training

Discussion: Dimarini One

New endloaded 2014 model is completely different than anything Demarini has had..and they did an excellent job with it. One of the best Demarini has come out with, and one of the hottest senior bats I have ever swung.. It has a similar feel to a Reebok in my opinion. The Balanced senior for 2014 is a different composition than the endload, and feels somewhat similar to the green one that was out last year. The endload breaks in sooner and is game ready in maybe 40-50 swings, where as last years model took twice as long to break in. Last years green model rewarded hitters who had good bat speed and could compress the bat...the 2014 endload is more responsive and will appeal to hitters with all levels of bat speed and skill. JMO
