The Hitting Jackit

If you read my posts you know I love baseball. I love finding new ways to improve player performance. I train players to make them bigger, faster, more explosive, and just overall better players. When training player you have to find ways to add functionality to the workout. Using the Hitting Jack-it is one of the easiest ways that you can increase your bat speed. It is a bat weight that can be added to your bat.


That being said in no way am I saying that if you buy this product you don't have to lift another weight. Ultimately there is no quick and easy way to gain the added strength need to be a great athlete, it takes time and dedication. The Hitting Jackit just gives our players another avenue to improve their game.


The Hitting Jack-It is the only variable Weighted Hitting System on the market today. With its patented design the products will help develop proper swing mechanics for the hitter. The 9 oz. size develops bat speed, the 12 oz. works on strength and the 16 oz. develops power. Here is an image of Nathan working hard to improve his strength and bat speed.





The following is a workout that I found on the Hitting Jackit website that you can use to improve your strength and bat speed:


PLAN 1 LIGHT TO HEAVY

1. Stretch out to loosen your entire body. 2. Secure the 9oz (red) HITTING JACK-IT and take 10-15 swings off the tee at about 75%. Remove the 9oz HITTING JACK-IT from bat. 3. Secure the 12oz (blue) HITTING JACK-IT and take 10-15 swings off the tee. Remove the 12oz HITTING JACK-IT from the bat. 4. Secure the 16oz (green) HITTING JACK-IT and take 10-15 swings. Keep the 16oz HITTING JACK-IT on your bat and take 8-10 swings of live batting practice. 5. Remove the 16oz HITTING JACK-IT and take 8-10 swings of live batting practice.

AT ANY TIME IF YOU FEEL TIRED OR FATIGUED STOP AND REST

PAYING ATTENTION TO THE FUNDAMENTALS OF A QUALITY SWING WHILE USING “THE SYSTEM” WILL RESULT IN A BETTER WORKOUT

Other weighted products on the market today are placed out over the barrel of the bat causing it to become end heavy. Swinging those types of products cause you to cast your bat away from your body developing bad swing mechanics. These product also can't be used during live practice either.
