SET UP

LASER POWER ST

Laser Beam: Place one or two arms inside your Laser Power ST for top hand isolation drills to improve bat speed, strength, and fix mistakes; coaching the proper turn control.

OPTIONAL

Laser Reflex: Reducing the size of your Laser Power ST increases the Exoprecise forces, limiting the influence of your arms, isolating the “blast” swing phase, adapting, and improving power; activating the core muscles, coaching rotational mechanics for the proper Kinetic Chain.

ADVANCED

PITCH PREPARATION

  • Speed: Above average.
  • Movement: Straight, or tailing.
  • Example 1: Four-seam fastball.
  • Example 2: Two-seam fastball.

LOCATION

Height: Belly button.
Breadth: Inside.
Depth: Deep.
Approach: Straight away pull-side, and pull-side alley.

UP-INSIDE

HITTING

  • Stance Width: Mid to wide.
  • Weight Distribution: Inside and front balls of feet, knees pinching inward.
  • Elbow Height: Mid to low.
  • Bottom Hand: Resting on the opposite shoulder.
  • Load: Mid to small, lifting and turning the front knee.
  • Stride: Mid to short, quiet/soft.
  • Swing Angle: Flat.
  • Swing Circumference: Compact.
  • Follow Through: Whipping the bat around, and close to your torso.

Coaching Tips

  • Toss the ball toward the front hip of the player. If the ball that isn’t in the right location, don’t swing.
  • The back leg/foot turns before contact is made; an indication you are turning from the core, enabling to keep your hands back.
  • Roll the barrel/forearms after contact, as you feel pressure on your rear shoulder; preventing over-extension. The time you roll depends on the pitch location, and contact depth.

Optional Extra Round

Think Mechanics

Coaching to stay through the ball with the top hand, toss the ball out in front, aiming to drive the ball over the center-field fence; elongating your mechanics and swing path. In this case, the time you roll the barrel increases, comparing, to an up-and-inside-fastball.

Drill 2

  • Drill Type: Bottom hand.
  • Multi-Swing Method: Hybrid, Reflex and Think mechanics.
  • Mental: Anticipating a challenging pitch, switching, to an automatic/subconscious state of mind; stepping in the box.
  • Options: Side toss, front toss, and tee drill.
  • Beginner Bat: Normal, full length.
  • Grip: Loosely grip the bat with your bottom/lead hand, placing the other hand on your opposite shoulder; beginners, “shorten up.”
  • Rounds: 3.
  • Swings: 10-20.

HITTING

  • Stance Width: Mid to wide.
  • Weight Distribution: Inside and front balls of feet, knees pinching inward.
  • Elbow Height: Mid to low.
  • Load: Mid to small, lifting and turning the front knee.
  • Stride: Mid to short, quiet/soft.
  • Swing Angle: Angular.
  • Swing Circumference: Elongated.
  • Follow Through: Whipping around, and away from the body; maximum extension.

Coaching Tips

  • Locating the ball low/away/in-front of home plate is critical, allowing players to hit the ball further away from the body; accommodating, the proper swing extension to improve bottom hand strength, and mechanics.
  • Relax the grip to avoid over-swinging with your arms, focusing, on the core; turning your back leg, from the hips.
