How To Get More Bat Speed

Rotational Hitting Aid

COACHING TIPS

  • Watch from side-on, your back foot is a key indicator of the Kinetic Chain “big muscles fire first and small follow.” Check the back foot is spinning fast and on the toes.
  • The faster you rotate, the more bat speed you produce. Turning your back foot from your core (turning from your hips) provides speed for momentum, taking weight off your back foot as you spin. If you turn your back foot from your knee, you disengage your core, slowing your rotation, as a result, you’ll turn on a flat back foot and pull of the ball.
