Training Manual

Build Yourself 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 pre-selected swing speed prior to impact.

 

Patented Power Barrel

The patented Power Barrel features six 15-pound and two 5-pound (yellow) resistance bands that can be combined to provide up to twenty swing speed settings ranging from little league to major league.

 

The Power Barrel releases down the bat shaft to the "impact position" and delivers audible feedback when the batter's preset swing speed is achieved.

Preset Your Swing Speed

  

Watch MLB Catcher Erik Ostberg Train

By incrementally adding resistance bands, batters develop a faster, more efficient, and powerful swing.

Swing Without A Ball To Increase Your Swing 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. 

Use Audible Feedback To Get On Plane Early

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.

Lock the power barrel to the far end of the bat for traditional on-deck weighted warmup swings.

A single solution for Underweight and 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.

Works equally well for both baseball and softball
