What Does It Improve?

  • Power hitting and bat speed for deep contact zones. For Example, up-and-inside fastball.
  • 2-Strike Hitting.
  • See and React Hitting.
  • Hitting against the best pitchers who throw hard, vary speeds and locate the ball on the corners of the plate.
  • Batting average, base on balls, bat speed and staying back
Builds strength for power hitting

Advantages Of Training Explosive Core Drills

Improve Bat Speed. Training “hands inside the baseball” is the key to developing power

Our Laser Strap Bat Speed Trainer guides you to the fastest and most powerful swing path… all the time, every time. Providing your upper body with the perfect amount of resistance to keep your “hands inside the ball” for every swing you take.

Explosive Core Power

Train perfect rotational mechanics to unlock the explosive power of your core. Strategically designed resistance to your upper body reduces your ability to “muscle up” or “cast” using your arms, which trains you to generate power from your core. Staying connected with your back arm to your cage, acts as a bridge transferring power generated from your core to your swing.

Stay back & stay closed, fixing a lunge and reach swing (casting)

Lacking confidence to hit the inside fastball (or any other pitch) triggers hitting mistakes. Laser Blast drills prevent reaching with your arms. When you can’t reach for the ball you have to allow the ball to travel deeper before you start your swing, fixing casting, lunging, jumping out and pulling off the ball (a big part of hitting is being able to let the ball travel deep in the hitting zone with the confidence that you are not going to get jammed). You’ll also develop an eagle “batter’s eye” as you’re able to read and react to late-breaking pitches such as the slider or sinker-ball.

Improves Trail/Top-Hand Power For Hitting The High Pitch

LASER Blast drills train the perfect swing to hit the high ball for power. The trail/top-hand plays an important role for generating bat speed and power with deeper contact zones, e.g. a fastball high in the zone. Improving top-hand power is especially important for players who are bottom/lead-hand dominant hitters who tend to hit the low ball well, but struggle with the up-and-in/deep contact zones (which are top-hand dominant pitch locations). The most common type of bottom hand dominant player is left-hand-hit/right-hand-throw.

Precise Muscle Memory for Game Day Success

LASER Blast drills train you to hit the ball deeper in your contact zone and guide you to hit the toughest pitch locations. During practice your eyes will send the message to your brain that you know how to hit any pitch,  resulting in improved skills and confidence to do it on game day.

LASER Blast Drill Checklist

Step 1 – Set Up With Your Back Foot Pointed Straight
Why? If your back foot is open it takes longer to rotate to the baseball and may result in being late with your swing.

Step 2 – Stride Out A Few Inches Past Shoulder Width
Why? Isolate the foot down position and to help with balance. If you’re too narrow with your stance you’ll fall off-balance when you swing

Step 3 – Make Sure Your Front Foot Is Pointing Straight
Why? If you start with your front foot open you’ll land with your front foot open and pull off the ball, especially on the outside pitch.

Step 4 – Take The Weight On The Inside Balls Of Your Feet
Why? Helps you to stay short and balanced with your stride, prevents lunging and improves power. This movement engages your core via your groin muscles, as opposed to bending over your knees forward, resulting in your legs taking the weight as you disconnect from your powerful core muscles.

Step 5 – Relieve Upper Body Tension. Begin With Your Back Elbow Down, Relax And Focus On Seeing The Ball
Why? Reducing upper body tension and minimizing movement will improve your powerful core swing. By focusing on the ball you’ll avoid over-thinking and awaken your lightning fast reflex swing.

Step 6 – Pick Up Your Front Foot And Turn Your Knee In. Tilt Your Front Shoulder Toward Your Front Knee
Why? Improves power by initiating internal rotation of your hips as your knee turns in to your center axis. Lifting and turning your front foot of the ground (lateral hip rotation) can trigger a dip in your back shoulder and wrapping (turning your shoulders too much). To prevent this you can work on a counter-balance movement to keep your shoulders on a level plane, in this case tilting your front shoulder toward the ground.

Step 7 – Load Against Your Back Leg As Opposed To Loading Your All Your Weight Back Toward Your Back Leg.
Why? Loading against your back leg keeps your core engaged with your swing, helps you to stay centered and stay back. Loading with your weight on your back leg will reduce bat speed and increases the likelihood of jumping out at the baseball, dipping the back shoulder and spinning off the ball.

Step 8 – Hips Rotate First And Your Hands Stay Back Until You Decide To Swing
Why? Leading your swing with your hips as opposed to leading with your hands will improve bat speed, power and allow you to hold up on your swing at the very last moment. This also prevents drifting with your hands and dragging the bat through the zone.

Step 9 – Allow The Ball To Travel Before Committing To Your Swing
Why? Letting the ball travel will improve bat speed and power, prevent lunging, casting and give you a better batter’s eye.

Step 10 – Spin On The Toes Of Your Back Foot By Rotating Your From Your Core (Back Hip Joint) As Opposed To Rotating Your Back Foot From Your Knee
Why? The faster your back foot rotation the faster your swing. Rotating from your core (back hip) will improve bat speed and power. If you turn your back foot from your back knee it’s physically impossible to spin on your toes and you’ll reduce bat speed.

Step 11 – Stay Connected With Your Swing. Hands Inside The Baseball And Head Down At Contact
Why? The definition of “hands-inside-the-baseball” is keeping your back arm close to your torso during your swing. It’s vital your back elbow stays as close to your hips (core) until you decide to commit to your contact zone (the spot where the bat meets the ball). Failure to stay connected with your back elbow, as it rotates around your axis results in a “long swing” and you’ll lose bat speed & power. This is commonly referred to as reaching or casting.

Step 12 – Both Arms Strapped Drills. Higher And Deeper Contact Zones Avoid Lifting On The Follow Through And Keep 2 Hands On The Bat All The Way
Why? Hitting a high pitch with a flat bat plane will lift the ball for you, therefor you don’t need to lift on your follow through. Lifting on your follow through with the high and deep contact zone will knock your head off the ball, cause you to fall off-balance as you over-rotate on your back foot and fight against your natural swing path. Releasing your top-hand from your swing will also fight your natural swing path, as a result you’ll fail to hit the up-and-inside pitch effectively.
