Velocity Drill Series

During Phase 2, we are continuing to increase the rate at which your baseball swing specific muscles fire with the help of kinetic energy. The increased energy will force your muscles to fire at a higher rate which will train your brain to remember how to fire your muscles quicker when you are stationary. We are going to accomplish this through the Phase 2 Velocity Drills Listed below.

The biggest adjustment in in the Phase 2 velocity drills is that the player will be focusing on bringing his back foot up and off the ground as an exaggerated part of the movement. This will teach the player how to create energy and transfer the energy from his back leg to his front leg and ultimately out the barrel of his bat with serious pop.

Another benefit of using these velocity drills it how these drills are training your body to function athletically and freely during your swing. These are great drills to do especially when a hitter is being way too mechanical and analytical. These drills force them to be athletic, which allows their natural abilities to take over as opposed to obsessing over where their back elbow is in the swing.

or as my buddy Tyler Moore on the Washington Nationals says when people ask him what he did to make it to the Major Leagues – (paraphrased) I just hit. I stopped obsessing over my mechanics and just played the game. (end paraphrasing)

What he was basically eluding to was the fact that yes, mechanics are important and they are designed to help you barrel the baseball up, but at the end of the day, you can’t mentally obsess over them especially during a live at bat.

These drills provide freedom of your swing, which takes you out of the mental midget mechanics obsessed portion of your brain and allows you to just let it fly.

Hip Separation Drill Series

Next, We are moving on to the Hip Separation Series.  These drills target creating hip separation properly and effectively.  By dragging your back foot, you are creating the separation you want in your hips as well as putting your body in the best position to hit when your front foot heel drops.

This series is also designed to eliminate: hip slides, early front side leaking, improper hip rotation (when players rotate their hips without creating hip separation first) and early backside collapsing.

During the Hip Separation Series we are working on block mechanics, or only focusing on one specific mechanic and not worrying about everything else.  This allows for players to single out one thing that they are working on and understand what they are doing will only build good habits, not bad habits.  When you are working in this fashion it is important to make sure the player is “feeling” the back hip separation so that he can carry that feeling into his regular swing in the box.

Elastic Band Series

During the Elastic Band Hip Separation Series you are going to be focusing on training your exact muscles you should be using when you are striding forward with your front let, while maintaining your anchor on your back leg. Also, the elastic band will keep your front hip closed while you are striding, a crucial piece of hitting with pure bat speed and power.

When your front hip opens before your heel drops then you are losing the ability to snap your muscles with a connected swing in one explosive movement.

This means lost bat speed and considerably less barrel control for you as a hitter.

Bringing in the resistance band will allow for the hitter to “feel” if they are executing the drill properly.

Connecting Your Swing Series

The goal of this section of drills is to connect the movements of your swing so that they all work together.  The goal here is to “sequential unlock all of your body parts to maximize your bat speed.”

So basically that means the more fluid and athletic you can be in your swing, the more natural bat speed you will have.

Game Speed Transition Principles

The principles outlined in this section are to be integrated with your current swing. These principles will dictate the adjustments that you are going to be making to maximize your bat speed.

Remember that your swing is YOUR swing and you should view it like your own fingerprint… it will not be exactly the same as another’s swing. But principles are ideas that can be used by every hitter without making drastic physical adjustments to their swing.

In Phase 3 of the 30 Day Bat Speed Cure we are going to be combining more aggressive movements with our foot drags. This is going to allow the player to feel the concept of separation in their back hip even more drastically, increasing their muscle memory and ability to repeat the concept.
