Re: bat speed

i have found that using bands to work the lower part of the tricep just above the elbow increases your lockout speed/strength and ultimately power...its an exercise used by louie simmons and westside barbell for lockout power in the bench but crosses over greatly in bat speed as well....also i have found that doing box squats with bands increases hip speed/strength and ultimately power in the hips....for both pitchers and hitters.........any and all comments welcome

I have been doing my own home-cooked version of Westside Barbell stuff as well.
My 'posterior chain' - hams, glutes, lower back - has never been stronger. The lower body work does help the swing.
How do you see the upper body work helping your swing?
Where are you using triceps?
