How to Improve Blast Motion Rotation Score (Power)

Blast Rotation Score

Given the rotational nature of hitting a baseball, there are variety of potential physical impediments that could lead to an undesirable Rotation Score (rotational acceleration and bat speed).  Issues could range from the bottom of the kinetic chain to the top, including lower body weaknesses, hip mobility limitations, t-spine related issues and even weaknesses in the upper extremities.

How to Improve Blast Motion Rotational Acceleration Metric

Rotational Acceleration

Today, we’re going to focus on how we look to improve the Blast Motion Rotational Acceleration metric in a baseball player.  Rotational Acceleration measures how quickly the bat accelerates through the zone from first move to getting on plane. A high Rotational Acceleration helps players create power at contact and provide for maximum amount of time to react to a pitch. While there are many variables that contribute to better rotational acceleration, in this article we’ll look at the big 3 we often see with young athletes in our facility: Continue reading “How to Improve Blast Motion Rotational Acceleration Metric”
