TAP™ Max-Grip sand-filled weighted balls can help correct mechanical deficiencies while increasing strength. When implemented correctly weighted ball training can be beneficial for throwers and hitters alike.
Throwing Max-Grip weighted balls is an excellent addition to any off-season routine. The variable stimulus presented by the training can help develop movement patterns that add velocity and improve command. Training with heavy balls can strengthen muscles and ligament/tendons in the elbow and shoulder potentially decreasing risk of injury.
Hitting Max-Grip weighted balls provide resistance at the point of contact requiring the batter to drive through the hitting zone. Used in soft toss drills or with the tee, the soft-shell construction of these weighted balls provides instant feedback. The pliable shell causes miss-hit balls to pop up or plunge to the ground and not travel far if the ball is poorly hit. The characteristics of the Max-Grip ball allow hitters to adjust power and bat plane to produce a desirable results.
These weighted implements are not toys and should be used with proper instruction and supervision in areas where there are no sharp edges or points. When considering the use of weighted balls please keep the words of two prominent trainers in mind:
