Softball Workout – 3 Core Exercises for More Hitting Power

Today I would like to share with you three of the most effective core training exercises to improve hitting power.  If you want to hit the ball harder, deeper and with more power then you need to do these three exercises.

Many people do a variation of crunches, planks, or leg raise.  While these can be effective, they are not the most suited to increase hitting power.  Therefore, if you truly want to hit the ball harder then you need to harness most of the power on the rotational aspect of hitting.  This is where you get most of your power.

Here are the three core exercises to help increase your rotational power.

The first one is the Barbell Core Rotation.

  1. Stand upright holding the end of a weighted bar at chest level with your elbow bent and the other end anchored on the floor against the solid object.
  1. Twist your upper body to one side, lowering the bar down to the side of that knee, and bending your hips and knees.
  1. Return to the upright, mid-position and repeat on the other side.

The next one is the Dumbbell Russian Twist.

  1. Start in a sitting position with your feet up off the floor, knees bent, holding the dumbbell at chest level in both hands with your arms extended out in front.
  1. Twist your torso to one side, lowering the dumbbell towards the floor.
  1. Twist your torso back to the other side, keep your feet up, and arms straight throughout.

Finally, a Swiss ball exercise called the Swiss Ball Lower Body Twist.
