Frequently Asked Questions
HeavySwing is a breakthrough line of handle-weighted training bats that give baseball and softball players a safe, mechanically sound way to warm up and train using a weighted bat without affecting their natural swing. Our patented bats allow hitters to increase bat speed, core strength and power.
For the first time, baseball and softball players have a training tool that allows them to take a proper weighted swing without adversely impacting or altering their swing mechanics.
Barrel-weighted products such as donuts and weight sleeves can corrupt a player’s swing by pulling their arms away from their bodies, causing a “casting effect.” These training devices force the hitter into a more linear swing, limiting the amount of torque that they can generate, and as a result, slowing their bat speed and ultimately reducing their power.
HeavySwing’s patented handle-weighted technology promotes a proper swing plane and solid swing mechanics by training the hitter to keep their hands “inside the ball.”What’s more, HeavySwing is a complete system to develop consistent swing mechanics in every part of the game. Use the HeavySwing for stretching and warm-up, then use the HeavyBat for batting practice and other hitting drills. Using the HeavySwing to train is far more than just swinging something heavy—it’s specially designed to increase strength and bat speed, and promote the sound fundamentals of hitting. The results that we’ve seen are incredible.
As baseball players ourselves, we know that old habits die hard. For years, we’ve all used donuts, sleeves—even two bats at once—to warm up before the game and in the on-deck circle. Simply put, HeavySwing is a completely new way to build strength, improve bat speed and increase core power that makes outdated barrel-weighted training equipment obsolete. Most importantly, using HeavySwing products supports proper swing mechanics.Of course, don’t just take our word for it—check out a few testimonials to see what top players and coaches are saying about HeavySwing.
