HeavySwing Releases White Paper to Explain Benefits of Handle-Weighted Versus Barrel-Weighted Swing Training for Baseball and Softball Players


Baltimore, Maryland (PRWEB) March 10, 2015

Baltimore-based baseball and softball training products company, HeavySwing, today released a white paper explaining the benefits and concept of handle-weighted versus traditional barrel-weighted swing training. Citing supporting research and scientific principles, the white paper demonstrates that traditional barrel-weighted training, where the end of the bat is loaded with additional weight during warm-up, can be counterproductive and even detrimental to a hitter’s swing.

“The handle-weighted concept is changing the training paradigm in diamond sports,” said HeavySwing President Danny Kenney. “Unlike traditional barrel-weighted tools that can corrupt a batters swing by creating a casting effect, handle-weighted bats provide effective weight resistance training without altering a player’s natural swing plane.”

The white paper highlights the following benefits a player will realize when incorporating handle-weighted training bats into their workout:


Improved slow-twitch muscle development and core strength;
Development of proper swing plane mechanics;
Ability to keep their hands “inside the ball;”
Greater bat speed and barrel exit speed.

According to Kenney, HeavySwing’s handle-weighted technology helps experienced athletes fine-tune their attack on the ball and build swing power, whereas for the younger players, handle-weighted products help develop their baseball muscles while aiding in the difficult BBCOR (Batted Ball Coefficient of Restitution) weight drop transition.

Currently, many big-league teams have players who use handle-weighted training products, either in the on-deck circle or in the batting cage. Baseball and softball training facilities and programs have also adopted the handle-weighted training concept, including Maryland-based Baseball Factory, a division of Factory Athletics, and one of the leading player development organizations in the United States.

“I have a philosophy of how I understand and teach hitting, and handle-weighted training bats fit perfectly with that philosophy of working on foundational parts of hitting every day,” says Jason Stein, former hitting coach assistant with the Cleveland Indians and Texas Rangers. “I’ve coached players of all ages, and when the Major League players I have worked with use a handle-weighted bat consistently, their path to the ball is more consistent which makes their on-field results improve dramatically.”
