Yes!!! What’s are your players doing to strengthen their performance at the plate. Here’s some things to remember; great hitters are smart at the plate, they get the skill sets it takes to do some damage and they can recognize what they are doing wrong.
They put in the time to constantly get better and work on those skill sets. They also can do some incredible work in their performance development in the weight room and workouts.
Here’s some things I address-
Legs-players need an incredible base. They need powerful legs, exercises like squats, elevated split squats, lunges, deadlifts, bowler squats are great to strengthen their hips, glutes, hamstrings and quads.
Rotational Power-exercises that strengthen players core like rotational ball slams, lateral ball pleases, wood chop are all great examples of strengthening your core in different planes of movement.
Upper body exercises like pull ups, push ups, ball passes, plank walks are great for that push through the ball.
Mobility and Agility exercise like bear crawls, box hops, skaters are all good examples of a players ability to adjust to pitches and create power.
If you want to create powerful hitters create athletes that understand what they need to be beasts. #softball #softballstrong #softballgirls #softballworkouts #softballtraining #softballlife #softballswag #hitter #hitting #hittingpower #power #powerful
