Since your forearms are the key muscle group, or one of the makor key muscle groups, for generating batspeed and power what are some really good exercises for developing your forearms to be solid and strong.

Read them, and then you'll see that improved strength, endurance, and flexibility played a major part in thier life. Saying mechanics is everything you should care about in hitting is a ridulous statement. You need good mechanics to be a good hitter, but with good mecahnics you also need improved strength, edurance, and flexibility to be a great hitter.
> Yeah, u do seem to get a little carried away by rotational mechanics Major Dan, u still ned strength to swing the bat.

Sorry, I didn't mean to offend. My point is/was that if you understand the mechanics as presented here, that you will find that developing strong forearms shouldn't be your first priority.
The muscles used to create rotation are more important - hamstrings, glutes, hip flexors, quads, abs, obliques, lower back stabilizers.
Get a strong core and you can rotate harder and faster and create batspeed.
My point was that if you aren't using your hands as the primary batspeed generators, strength there is less important. It doesn't hurt however but you'll get more benefit in other ways.
