What Exercises Will Improve My Baseball Swing?

Question:

Can you recommend any lifting exercises to help improve my baseball swing?



Answer:

You can absolutely improve your baseball swing a LOT with the right exercises. You need to work on anti-rotational and power transfer exercises for the core.

What Exercises Will Improve My Baseball Swing?

A good exercise for the baseball swing can be done with just a dumbbell and a bench.

  • Set a dumbbell on end on the end of a bench then sit down beside it.
  • Your legs should be perpendicular to the bench.
  • Keeping your upper body vertical and knees pointing straight forward, turn to the side and grasp the dumbbell with both hands.
  • Lift it off the bench then rotate to the other side and set it down on the other end of the bench.
  • Repeat this from the other side.
  • Keep your breath sucked in when doing this one but be sure you don't hold it too long.
  • Use about 20 to 30 pounds to start with on this one.

This exercise works the transverse abdominis which is one of the major stabilizing muscles of the torso. Strengthening it will allow the power from your legs and midsection to be transferred strongly to your upper body and therefore your bat when you swing.
