Band Assisted Push-ups


The Band Assisted Push-up is a great exercise for limited upper body power. The exercise should be performed for 6 sets of 4 explosive repetitions assisted by a medium or heavy tension band (based on strength levels). It is helpful for the Rotation Score, Time to Contact and Power metrics.
By assisting the push-ups with a band, we can help build the velocity side of power and help the upper body improve adjustability in the swing, which is important when facing different pitches in different parts of the zone.
**** Note: If you’re looking to address any physical limitations related to this drill, we highly recommend that you get a thorough assessment by a qualified strength coach or PT.
