Rob Rose, President of True Athlete Performance in Washington, DC, explains how to incorporate the core and upper body to try to gain more power on the hitters swinging movement. Rose shares a series of drills that help athletes gain that upper body strength.
Setup: Rob Rose introduces two drills to help the athlete gain more upper body power. The first drill is the woodchopper, where the athlete takes a medicine ball and circles it over their head and slams the ball down, powering all the way through. The second drill is called power-push ups. Power-push ups consist of the athlete doing a push up, and powering up off of the ground with the hands and landing slowly back on the hands.
