Power Grip Wrap Drills
The "WOW" Factor :
This is a small excerpt from an email received from a new user of the Power Grip Wrap (PGW).
" I have to share with you my first impression of his swing after I had him swing without the PGW--WOW!!! His bat speed was the fastest I have ever seen from him. I've been working on teaching him rotational hitting, and I know the PGW is going to help him develop the proper swing with great power. I'll be using the PGW with my Mustang level team and I am expecting parents to also experience the same wow factor". - Coach Ricky O., of Mililani, Hawaii.
Here is a soft toss routine we use with the hitters we train. There is a lot that goes into training a hitter and there are many mechanical aspects to the swing I think a hitter should understand. Once mechanics are nailed down or at the very least understood – swing maintenance should become part of your every day routine. Maintenance is absolutely crucial to staying consistent. Not unlike feeding your dog or brushing your teeth your swing is something that must be maintained. Learn the right way as soon as you can and then keep working it. You need to concentrate on proper swing mechanics in practice settings, so that the proper mechanics become automatic at game time. There is so much to think about during the game your swing mechanics should not be one of them.

It's no joke. The Power Wrap makes kids so strong, so fast. Last year my son had only a handful of hits. Now, after working with the power-wrap for only a few weeks, he was 3 for 3 in his last game, rips them off the wall and has at least one a hit in every game this year. I won't even tell him he's batting .700 ! As a coach the difference is amazing. Kids ATTACK the ball after only one session. Their eyes light up, their smiles get big, and after that they literally ask for it by name. Little Dad and Coach, M.H. San Diego - California.
Below is a clip of a Kid who has trained with the Power Grip Wrap since he was seven. He regularly trains from both sides of the plate - take a look at the results of that training. Regular use of this product will make a difference in your swing - GUARANTEED!
The last portion of the video shows a home run he hit when he was eight.

Build Strength using the exercises listed below. Increase grip strength, bat speed, balance, and core strength through contact with the ball using the load-no load approach. Warm up adequately and always consult with a physician before undertaking strenuous physical exercise. Load the Power Grip Wrap as per the instruction sheet. After warming up, begin training with the Power Grip Wrap as outlined below. Be sure to maintain your balance through all swing sets. For the best results train with the Power Grip Wrap a minimum of 3 days a week - it will make a difference you can feel - GUARANTEED.
Using the drills listed below train in sets - take 5 to 7 swings in a set and perform 3 to 5 sets. While training with the Power Grip Wrap in these sets do not pickup your game bat. This is the overload aspect of the training sequence.
Then after you have completed your 3 to 5 sets with the Power Grip Wrap quickly move to your game bat. We even suggest the last set be a combination of Power Grip Wrap and game bat. So, in the last round take 4 swings with Power Grip Wrap and finish the set with your game bat. The initial feel of the game bat will be "WOW this is light". But even better than that is the mechanics you've learned by striking the ball correctly - "Top hand - Palm up and bottom hand - Palm down". Make contact with the ball the way the professionals do. Train regularly with the Power Grip Wrap and hit it farther.
On this page you will see pictures of swings frozen at contact and near contact with the ball. Notice the "Top hand - Palm up and Bottom hand - Palm down". The Power Grip Wrap will train you to be in that position with instant feedback as to whether you are where you need to be. Train Smarter - Get Better.
It's what all the good hitters do - Train to be one. If you already are and you're not using this technique start training to use it. Train with the Power Grip Wrap - Get Better - Train Smarter.
Power Grip Wrap - Pricing and Ordering information:
The tosser kneels safely to the side of the batter (right for right handed batters) and ahead of the batter. The tosser will toss the balls to the batter for the batter to hit. The hitter should impact the ball in front of his or her body. This is the "contact point." The toss is important! It should be crisp, but not too fast, and out in front of the batter. You can choose to hit into a net or out into an open field. The tosser should use an underhand motion, bringing the ball back slightly, to indicate to the batter to “load” and then toss the ball, aiming for the front thigh or hip. You can vary speed and location of the tosses to simulate pitches. The batter should never be falling over at any point, or falling off to the side after swinging. Maintain balance! Feet should be quiet and hands should be quick. The other essential is staying fluid through the ball. Try to prevent jerky motions and maintain stance and balance. This drill should be used to overemphasize being fluid.
Front Toss Drill
The hitter stands 12 to 15 feet away from a screen or fence. The tosser kneels on one knee 12 feet in front and to the side of the hitter and tosses the ball softly underhanded into the hitter’s strike zone so the hitter can take a full swing.
When using these drills you should reinforce the proper mechanics of the swing. Make sure hitters are:
1. Pivoting correctly and early enough with a solid stance. The stride should be--Smooth, Soft, Short, Stable. You should be able to stride and put your foot down and still feel like most of your weight is on the rear leg.
2. Rotating hips with an explosion toward the ball.
3. Hands should lead the back elbow, unlocking shoulders, elbows and wrists in sequence while throwing their hands straight to the ball.
4. Watching the ball all the way to the "bat" and continuing to watch the "contact point" after the "ball" has been hit.
The proper stance is essential. It should be a balanced stance with no more than 60% of the weight on the back foot. Eyes should be level, head square, bat in launch position (not wrapped behind the head), and knees slightly bent. At impact, with the ball, and while using the Power Grip Wrap, both barrels should be facing the pitcher.
