Warm-Up Hitting Drills for Hitters of All Ages

Written By: Garrett Gordon

Movement Work

Here at Baseball Rebellion, we are big on movement work before hitting.  This is something that a lot of hitters neglect.  The main goal here is to learn how to get into a better position at launch and then turn the body correctly. 

If a hitter pulls off or turns his shoulder the incorrect way they crush the noodle.  Avoid the noodle or choose the alternate way that I showed in the video to help your hitter understand better posture and correct shoulder movement.

Front Arm Constraint Drill 2.0

The drill below is something that I have been doing the past few weeks during my lessons.  It has helped many hitters feel the correct move when they start their swing.  Since the band and front arm are placed at the back hip it somewhat restricts the hitter to fly open

The hitter can now focus on working behind the ball and through versus around the ball and open.  This drill has become one of my favorites for helping hitters who fly open and pull across.

Get A Better Launch Position With This Drill

The hip hinge is a vital part of having a powerful and consistent swing. Most young kids have a tough time figuring this out because they have yet to step in the weight room. Therefore, as an Instructor I have to get a little creative with how I can get hitters in the positions they need. Every hitter responds differently and this drill below may just help your hitter to get that swing they desire.

How To Correct An Open Or Closed Landing

The position we land in can set us up for success or failure right from the start. If we begin our swing from an open or closed stance, this will dictate the direction of our swing no matter how good the movement is. Just like when throwing a ball, you want to stride towards the target so you can be more accurate.
