  • One arm swings

    I have been working on developing my swing as most here know. This drill has help develop better function in regards to the back arm. I feel This helps get the back arm alive and ready to work. The front arm is just important and I will post some drills ASAP! I wanted to post this clip to help others incorporate a drill IMO that has taken my swing to a higher level. This drill is something that I now apply daily before I hit and hope others can see it's value.

    That is almost exactly what I do... and has helped bring my swing to the next level. Instead of throwing the ball, I took your advice from our phone conversation and use my heavy bag. I'll send you a clip later.

    I love that drill. Best drill by far!

    I can't wait for the top hand drills. My top hand could be better.

      My concern is that there's a lot of drag in your swing. I don't know if that's inevitable or not, but it could ingrain some bad habits.

          Erik -

          I would try more early tip emphasis before the rip as with the bat tipping in front of the head as with Reid (even though this is 2 hand swing)

              I agree Tom... when I do that drill (top hand), I first tip to second base then to the second basemen. Although I don't do this in my swing, it helps me get the desired feel that I am looking for.

                He has bat drag too then right? Look at his bottom arm action... they are both the same thing...

                  EL,
                  Eric, if you want to develop a back hand drill why not develop one that more emulates a truer bat path. this one is very flat. What would this drill look like if you had someone holding a hitting stick?

                    IMO, the top hand resembles this this top hand:

                      I'm questioning his bat path.

                          Jake,


                          I have other swing paths. This is just one swing. This is a tough drill and my focus is working on keeping the back elbow from dragging. My back arm is still developing. I like to be able to make adjustments from the flips. The hitting stick is also good. I like to start hitting balls up the middle with this drill before I start driving the ball.

                            Connor read the posts. I am questioning Eric's hand path. Not a big deal I wished my players had his skill. I just don't understand why you would emulate a swing path he is not likely to use in a game.

                              Why? because I feel that if you put the top hand onto the bat... then you have the ground work of the high level MLB swing.
