    best exercises to quicken bat speed?


    hi all.....my younger brother is trying out for the baseball team this year and i wanted to give him a few exercises to speed up his bat and give him some more power in his swing.

    so far i just stressed to him the importance of working out his legs ,triceps,and forearms but does anyone know of any good specific exercises he should try besides swinging a weighted bat?

    I agree with Rodja. Arms definitely need to be worked, but I'd focus a lot on core development, too. If he is younger, though, cleans may be an issue if he doesn't have proper form down, yet.
