The Baum Wood Composite heavy (overload) and light (underload) training bats are key tools to help players increase bat speed and barrel control.
"Every study done on weighted bat training and underload/overload programs has shown that Collegiate level players improve their bat speed by alternating between heavy, light, and normal-sized bat when compared to players just using their normal bat. Training movement with an underload implement allows the movement to occur at a higher velocity, thus recruiting more fast twitch fibers. Swinging with an overload bat can have multiple benefits. First and foremost, overload bats are beneficial in developing functional strength for the swinging athlete. Weighted bat training using overload bats can also aid in developing a more efficient movement pattern by using the human body’s ability to self-organize. When the body feels the heavier bat, and the hitter’s intention is to hit the baseball with quickness and power, the body will respond by moving in the most efficient manner possible."
Purchased for overload training. Works well and heavy enough for my teen
This overload trainer is an absolute beast. It is a great tool to add to your daily training to develop bat speed and strength. Highly recommend.
I purchased a Baum Overload Monster bat not too long ago, I like it a lot even though that this is my 3rd Baum bat that I have in my collection. Nevertheless, I might order the 35 inch one soon.
This heavy Monster bat has been used as my practice bat and has prepared me to hit shots with my drop 3.
I highly recommend this bat to gain strength. This bat sounds and feels monstrous!!!
