Re: Re: Re: How can I increase my bat speed?
Bat speed is best achieved by stretching the shoulder muscles, NOT by building up the strength in them. Use limited resistance but with speed training in mind. In-other-words use quick, light weighted reps with good resistance. I find that the large rubber bands (or surgical tubing) work wonders for this. Any exercise done with heavy weights for more that 8 seconds will begin to build strength in the shoulder and ONLY benefit the endurance of the athlete. Try quick-speed training and you will achieve maximum results and prepare you for game time.
