Re: Re: Re: Re: How can I increase my bat speed?

Where can I purchase resistance bands specifically for hitting?

> 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.
