Step 1. Baseball Hitting Program

Summary

Below are basic drills for beginners, and professional players; wishing to revisit the core principles of fastball hitting.

You can’t get to point B if you skip A

Before training a loopy, elongated “home run swing,” it’s critical to learn mechanics to hit a dominant fastball; the “core swing” is your foundation swing, providing a “fallback” when facing the best pitchers in your league.

Engaging Your Core

ENGAGING YOUR CORE KEEPS YOU COMPACT, MAINTAINS BALANCE WITH YOUR BATTING STRIDE, PREVENTS LUNGING, IMPROVES, BAT SPEED, AND  POWER

Engage your core muscles in the batting stance working your stabilizing muscles; groin, and glutes. Opposingly, bending “knees over toes,” causing your weaker leg muscles, and joints to hold your weight; disconnecting from your power source.

  • Spread out past shoulder width.
  • Tilt slightly forward, placing weight on the front inside balls of your feet.
  • Squeeze your knees toward the centre of the balance ball for 10 repetitions.
  • Remove the ball.
  • Spread out past shoulder width.
  • Imagine the balance ball between your legs, and squeeze your knees toward each other.

Core And Rotational Hitting Mechanics. The best way to improve core power and teach rotational hitting mechanics is to reduce the influence of the arms and shoulders, adapting to swing with your powerful core (adaption method). Opposingly, other rotational hitting aids restrain your hips, reducing critical speed for momentum; which allows you to spin on your back toe, by taking the weight off your foot.

SMALL SWING LOAD FOR BIG TIME POWER

USING YOUR CORE TO START YOUR BASEBALL SWING LOAD

Start your swing load using your core, turning your front knee in, turning your back leg from your hips; keep your hands back, and don’t swing.

Once again, avoid “knees, over toes;” instead, load against your back foot, engaging your core, and improving balance.

Why? Loading “knees, over toes” disengages your core muscles, decreasing your bat speed, power, and triggers mistakes, such as; jumping, dipping, and pulling out of your swing.

Turn the front knee in, rotate your back leg.
