This is the new Force Vector Separation Hitting system. I have put this together as a request to take the 3X Pitching approach into the hitting field. I have used this approach on my hitters at my baseball academy and have had some great results. This approach, just like anything on this board is up for critique. It is in its beginner stages, so I am sure it will continue to evolve overtime as I work out the kinks.

This program is recommend with the Baseball Training Manual to help you develop more power as an athlete.

Brent,

 

Great post and topic on hitting.  I have not seen the training manual so I have a couple of questions

 

Does the training manual have specific exercises or lifts to teach the force vector?

 

Question 2-are any of those exercises moving from a side way position (similar to a batting stance) to create the necessary ground reaction forces?

 

I ask the questions because so many coaches tell hitters to get stronger even with quality Olympic lifting programs yet it never translates to the batters box because hitters don't know how to move in a horizontal fashion to create force with the lower body.

 

Thanks for putting the video together.

Garrett, the Baseball Training Manual is only a strength and conditioning program for the baseball player. Your questions here are perfect. These are the same questions I have asked myself which have inspired me to develop a hitting program to go with this strength and conditioning program. I am currently in the process and would like to ask you to continue to critique this process.

Brent,

 

A friend of mine who was a catcher at the MLB level come across some things as he was viewing video when trying to figure out how to get hitters out.  One of the things he noticed was hitters who started with the back foot turned in didn't hit as well as hitters who had their back foot square.  He said they ended up rotating to soon and never get their hips cocked or closed when driving to the ball.  He showed a clip of Griffey with Seattle and Cincinnati.  He was struggling in Cincinnati with his back foot turned in.  He showed me that most hitters will attempt to square it back up as they drive off the back leg.

 

I thought it was very interesting and wanted to add it to the conversation.

That makes sense. I would only recommend the foot turned in to get the weight on the power pads. I bet if he did a study on hitters who position their weight more on their heels than ball of foot, do not hit for as much power.

I have the belief or understanding that hitters that are digging their back foot in are setting the pressure on the power pads in preparation to move.

Hey Brent,

Good to see you are getting info. out here on hitting approaches.

In relation to Albert's approach, I would like for you to show video clips  ofJim Edmond's, his approach is similiar to Albert's but he executes his approach a little different, I as you like their front leg and leg movement verses the leg hike, If one is inexperienced the leg hike is not advisable due to the fact that most inexperienced batters have problems getting the leg and foot down quickly and properly.

Edmond's and Pujols just quietly and smoothly work their front hip, knee and foot and then when it is time they explode on the ball, How about getting Ted Williams book “The Science Of Hitting” study it and learn how making good hard contact to all fields with power and consistency along with an excellent batting average is accomplished, learn how he taught the approach and stride, he is one of the many people who taught in more detail than he actually executed when playing as his book shows in contrast to his video clips,

in his book he has diagrams and photo's showing when and how the hips work and lead the way and when the step should be executed along with his reason for the step being executed as he said it should be. You might be able see his hips lead the way if viewing video clips of him in step motion. actually the same principle for not copying major league pitchers goes for hitting also which is when one does so they also unknowingly copy the inferior aspects so when one copy's one must know both sides about what they are copying so they know what to separate out.

Nuff said.

It looks like FVS is dormant, but it would be great to pick it up again. I would love to see a rigorous approach to hitting similar to 3X.
