Bat Speed – Pro quick tip to increase bat speed

The guys with the quickest bat speed are really loose with their upper half. If you try to really tense up and use your large muscles… you large muscles are slow, they’re powerful but slow. So you want to try to incorporate both.

With the lower half, we really want to fire the legs and fire the hips. Usually we squat more than we bench press, so that’s why we really want to activate our lower half.

The key though… Really light grip and really tension free up top. So when we start our swing, our swing starts from the ground up. We start to rotate the hips, and now the hands can whip through the zone. So we’re not pushing or pulling through the zone, we’re whipping it through the zone.

Just that little piece can really help with your bat speed.
