How To Train

Build A Powerful Swing

The ProVelocity™ Bat is a professional training tool designed to hit live balls. In order to make contact with a ball, batters must achieve their preset swing speed prior to impact. 

Inventor Elijah Taitel uses the ProVelocity Bat to improve his swing mechanics

Sliding Power Barrel

The sliding Power Barrel features eight resistance bands that can be engaged for preset swing speeds from little league to major league.

Drive the Barrel to the Impact Position

When you swing fast enough to overcome the set resistance, the sliding Power Barrel is driven down the bat shaft to the impact position enabling you to make contact with a ball. 

Swing Speed Table

The Swing Speed Table below shows the relationship between resistance and swing speed.

Listen For The Double Click  

A "double click" confirms you have achieved your preset swing speed.

Get The Swing Analyzer App

The Swing Analyzer app to uses your height, bat size, and resistance settings to calculate your preset Bat Speed. It also uses the ProVelocity Bat's unique audio feedback to calculate your Time At Speed, On Plane Efficiency, and Early Bat Speed Position.

 

The app recommends when to increase resistance as your swing mechanics improve.

Get The Bat Speed Program

Download SEC Coach Nate Headley's 10 week bat speed program.  Programming is available from ages 10U to Professional. Train 20 minutes per day 3 to 4 times per week and start ripping it to the opposite field.

Swing Without A Ball To Increase Your Bat Speed

Swing the ProVelocity bat in your backyard for fifteen minutes a day without a ball to develop the muscle strength and swing mechanics of a powerful swing.

Two audible "clicks" indicate that you have swung with enough power to drive the Power Barrel to the end of bat and back. Add resistance bands as your strength and swing efficiency increases.

Start Hitting Live Balls

Start hitting live balls off a baseball tee, in the batting cages, or on the field to increase hand-eye coordination.

In order to make contact with a ball, batters must achieve their pre-selected swing speed prior to impact. 

Coach Ferber - Don't Be Steep

Coach Ferber explains how to extend the time between "clicks" to get on plane early, be less steep, and spend more time in the "zone".

Casey Smith - Learn Not To "Push"

 

Casey Smith at @outfronthitting corrects a "push."  His student must use his core to whip the barrel on plane in order to obtain the "double- click"

Casey Smith - Use Check Swings to Engage Your Core 

Casey Smith @outfront hitting uses check swings with the ProVelocity Bat to develop bat speed with the core and increase plate coverage.

Casey Smith - Don't Loose The Barrel

Casey Smith at @outfronthitting uses a low resistance setting to let his student feel when the barrel releases.  The student is learning to rotate the bat on plane with his shoulders, not by dumping the barrel with his wrists.

Take Check Swings in the On Deck Circle 

With a recorded exit velocity over 104 mph, D1 commit Max Soliz Jr times his check swings with incoming pitches in the on-deck circle. With 30 pounds of resistance set, he listens for a "double click" to ensure he is generating 50 mph of early bat speed with his core alone.

Lock the Barrel for Weighted Warmup Swings

Underweight / Overweight Training

The ProVelocity Bat feels "light" when the power barrel is near the batters hands. It becomes "heavier" as centrifugal force drives the weighted power barrel to the far end of the bat.

When the ProVelocity bat is "light" batters learn to use their fast twitch muscles to drop the bat into the on-plane position quickly. 

Once on plane, the bat becomes heavier as larger muscles drive the power barrel down the shaft of the bat developing a powerful on-plane rotary swing.
