The Power Belt -- We Designed It! We Build It! We Sell it Exclusively at BatSpeed.com!
BatSpeed.com's Power Belt is our newest and best batting aid yet. And it's a great teaching aid for the young players, as well as experienced players who want to improve their batting.
As the batters in the videos above show, it is the natural tendency of most young hitters to rely on their arms rather than the rotation of their body to swing the bat. Therefore, the ideal time for a batter to develop a more productive rotational swing is when they first take up the game. The more a set of muscle memories for the swing are ingrained, the more difficult they are to change.
The Power Belt forces the hands, arms and body in the perfect rotational hitting position much like our popular Perfect Connextion, but it gives batters more freedom to use with the heavy bag, soft toss and even light pitching. It develops the smooth transition that all batters need to go from the cage to live pitching.
The Power Belt is also designed to produce a balance between the batter's lead-side pull and back-side drive. This balance performs many key functions:
Keeps the elbows & forearms rotating in sync with shoulder rotation - or staying connected
Keeps the larger muscles of the legs and torso engaged to generate maximum bat speed
Keeps the lead-elbow and forearm accelerating at the same rate as the back-elbow and forearm
Keeps the angle between the forearms constant (i.e., rotating the triangle) for a shorter more compact swing
It can be used while swinging against a heavy practice bag or in mid air
It is recommended that you use the Power Belt in conjunction with BatSpeed's instructional videos (Final Arc 2 DVD and Swing Analysis DVD) to truly understand and master rotational mechanics with the Power Belt. The Power Belt also works great with the Perfect Connextion, as the cups in the Perfect Connextion will force batter to use the correct rotational technique, and then the Power Belt will give batter a similar feel as it holds the arms in the correct position but allows the batter to have substantially more freedom and movement, so that the batter can quickly transition those same mechanics to live pitching. At first, a batter should practice with a heavy practice bag to get the feel from initiation to contact.
