Swing Enhancement Program

Program Components:  
This program includes daily (1) warm up routines, (2) hitting circuits, (3) cardio management, (4) strength & core programming, (5) post cool down circuits, (6) arm care management, & (7) recovery plans. All components are described in detail below under the 'Details & Usage' section.

Research & Development: 
Designed by MLB hitting personnel in conjunction with biomechanists, kinesiology experts, & nationally acclaimed hitting developers. Over a decade of research, analytics, and empirical data supports this program's applications and curriculum.

Required Equipment: 
To be utilized with the Velocity LOAD Harness, VPX Traction Foam Roller, VPX Torsion Velocity Band System, & VPX Torsion Hip Loop (pictured below).

Program Usage

Overview & Recovery:

Ensure you abide by all workload directives, applications, & intensity requirements to ensure work loads & recovery rates are proportionate. This program requires usage with prescribed equipment.

If you experience extended soreness, cut back on amount of swings or swing intensities FIRST, then drill amounts SECOND. If soreness persists, take days off & then start again. If you experience any type of sharp pain or become injured, stop immediately & seek medical advice. Hitters who are actively in their seasons need to carefully monitor game work loads & ensure proper recovery levels for their next appearance.  

Program Key:

There will be two ways to use your VL Harness - as denoted in the program key. To better understand how each usage application is administered into your training process, refer to 'Program Videos' tab above for explanations.

» Back Hip Usage (BH): 
One bungee contours your back hip & one bungee runs from middle of waist to inside of back ankle. Trains linear drive force, ground force reaction (GFR), & sync of front foot strike to hip rotation.

» Front Hip Usage (FH): 
One bungee contours your front hip & one bungee runs from middle of waist to inside of front ankle. Trains rotational torque & sync of lower-to-upper half kinetic chain reactions.

» Perceived Effort Level  (PEL): 
The amount of effort or intensity level per rep. 100% is max intensity swinging. 90% is controlled high intensity swinging. 80% is medium intensity swinging that feels the barrel throughout the entire ROM. 70% is a phase specific swinging that feels your entire movement planes.

» "Clipped" or "Unclipped": 
This is regarding your VL Harness specialized bungees. "Clipped" means you would have the specialized bungees attached to the VL Harness waist belt & foot strap, & are utilizing the resistance to train. "Unclipped" means you would keep the specialized bungees unclipped so no resistance is felt.

Training Components:

Each week of this program includes the following daily routines (listed below). Follow all daily routines exactly in their printed form to optimize this program's performance - unless you are experiencing recovery or health issues. There are 10 different training components PER DAY included in this plan: 

» Warm up:
Gets you ready for the day's workload.

» Course work (arriving 11.15.19): 
Continuing education focused upon giving you the "why" behind everything you do.

» Pattern sequencing drills:
Sequences your swing's kinetic chain reactions.

» Plate coverage/barrel speed drills:  
Increases zoned plate coverage, barrel whip, & hand speeds.

» Movement enhancement drills:  
Directly trains your linear-to-rotational movement planes.

» Hitting enhancement drills:  
Teaches the MLB approach to hitting.

» Daily arm, cuff, & scap traction:
Increases cuff strength, scapula load rates, recovery, & arm health.

» Daily recovery management: 
Increases athleticism, recovery rates, and hitting endurance.

» Hitter's strength program:
Strength program specifically designed to increase exit velocity & support.

REGARDING DRILLS: 
Each drill directive (in your daily routines) has a specific number that corresponds with the number of a drill in the videos shown under the 'Program Drills' tab (above).  For example, if drill #1 is listed in your day's plan, you are to do Drill #1 that is listed in the 'Program Drills' tab (above). Additionally, there are different drill types that correspond to the different training components. For example, if your daily routine for the Pattern Sequencing training component lists Drill #1, you would refer to Drill #1 under 'Pattern Sequencing' in the Program Drills tab above. You would NOT do Drill #1 that is listed under 'Swing Enhancement' drills. Ensure you are doing the correct DRILL TYPE & DRILL NUMBER that corresponds with your daily training routine directives.
