A Proven Hitting Program + Durable Training Bats
What are Axe Bat Speed Trainers?
A durable weighted training bat set for hitting training and a year-round hitting program.
Researched and Proven
Axe Bat Speed Trainers are the product of months of development. The one-sided hitting surface was reinforced to provide game-like performance which maximized durability.
Driveline’s year-round hitting program combines Soviet overload and underload research with our own in-house testing.
The training program spells out the sets and repetitions for each drill and detailed high-speed videos explain the core drills.
The weighted bat training program modulates both volume and intensity. It includes a dedicated on-ramp phase and allows athletes to graduate to more advanced training as they progress.
What good is a plan if you do not have the will to execute it?
Specific drills with specific focuses maximize the training carry-over from the weighted bats. Improved bat speed is great, but you need barrel control and the ability to adjust to off-speed pitches to deliver on-field results.
Our hitting program outlines in detail what to do to get the most out of these bats.
Your Axe Bat Speed Trainers are a living, breathing product.
We constantly test new programs and drills, Axe Bat | Driveline customers will receive lifetime updates with the best of what we have researched.
The training program templates in the Axe Bat Speed program are the same that we use in-house.
Internal 8-Week Study Results
The Driveline Hitting Program
The bat speed program gradually increases reps and intensity throughout the year, varying drill-work between in-season and off-season programs.
Off-Season Hitting Program
The off-season is the time to develop bat speed and barrel control.
The variable weights and loads of the training bats help an athlete internalize an efficient swing. The added resistance provides a sport-specific stimulus to better generate bat speed and control the bat head.
The off-season hitting program pushes volume after an on-ramp period.
In-Season Hitting Program
Weighted bats can be used to improve adjustability and barrel control.
The variability consistently reinforces an optimal swing pattern and helps athletes stay “grooved” through the season. Athletes starting during the season can on-ramp with low intensities to keep their game-time performance up.
The in-season hitting program promotes adjustability and approach.
