Power Up Wedge - Booth 615
The power up wedge straps to the players foot / feet placing them into dynamically balanced and superior athletic positions. These positions engage the lower 1/2 providing immediate feel as the player moves to initiate the proper swing sequence, beginning with load and transfer. The wedge(s) force the player to be dynamic and athletic through the sequence giving them a better opportunity to be on time while recruiting energy from the ground up via the larger muscles in the legs. This in turn helps with acceleration of the hips, core and shoulders as the player transfers and turns through the swing. Each of these being a required movement to increase bat speed, power and arm speed, velocity. The player can remove the wedges after 10-15 swings and retain proper feel as they move into the next couple drills, as the lower Ω feel is married to the mind and body for a number of minutes. The wedge works great on backside, front-side or both feet.
