Questions and Answers for Louisville Slugger Weighted Training Baseball Bat: WBTRHVY-OB34
Research says for overload and underload training that the player should use bats that are 20% lighter and heavier than their game day bats. In this case, this bat is much heavier. Will this cause the swing to ultimately slow down or cause malfunctions in the swing mechanics of the player?
Consistently swinging a bat that's considerably heavier or lighter than your game bat can definitely cause a hitter to develop bad habits in their swing. Overload/Underload Training is used as supplementary training, and I would recommend that you practice more with a bat similar to your game model (because that's really the one you want to be most comfortable swinging). This will help minimize the possibility of developing bad habits with the heavier/lighter bat. The weight of this Louisville Slugger Weighted Training Baseball Bat (WBTRHVY-OB34) is about 50% heavier than the typical weight of a bat most players at the high school level or beyond use.
