The Different Breed hitting philosophy is simple… THE BEST HITTERS GET HITS. How do we ensure that we are giving ourselves the best chance of making contact and getting hits? We start by establishing the hitter’s baseline using slow-mo video analysis and hitting metrics such as bat speed, peak hand speed and attack angle. This type of analysis captures aspects of the swing that the human eye could miss. We break down and decipher efficient movements from inefficient movements and begin to implement drills and mechanics for instant results. We implement what is useful, discard what is inefficient and maintain what is specifically YOUR OWN.
We use position specific drills to enhance our athletes skill set. What sets our training apart from the rest is the implementation of hand-eye coordination, reflex and footwork training. We put our athletes in uncomfortable situations to train the brain and central nervous system to become comfortable being uncomfortable.
It is important that our athletes get the very most of our training which is why a position player should not be training pitching. Request pitching instruction and we will set you up with a top college pitching coach to help you reach your full potential.
Baseball/Softball is a sport of explosiveness. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE FAST TO BE EXPLOSIVE! Our body is made up of 2 different muscle fibers. Slow twitch muscle fibers are the first to contract. These fibers are most effective in exercises requiring endurance such as long distance running/swimming. Fast twitch muscle fibers are broken into 2 different catagories. Fast twitch (type II a) are referred to as Moderate Fast twitch. Type II a fibers are contracted for power exercises requiring weight, not of minimal or maximum effort. They are fast in contraction and more resistant to fatigue. Fast twitch type II b is used for high intensity and low endurance exercises. Maximal lifts and short sprints. Different Breed Training focuses on executing short explosive movements in order to build a players speed and quickness.
We dive into the minds of the greatest athletes to ever compete (Michael Jordan, Derek Jeter, Kobe Bryant, Bruce Lee). We look into what made these athletes tick. We spend a lot of time talking about approach and what to look for in specific counts in the at bat. We train our athletes to become disciplined and to take advantage of all opportunities that cross their path. It goes much farther than baseball. We implement the work ethic to be successful in all aspects of life.
It is not uncommon for Different Breed Training to be asked to attend open travel ball or high school tryouts to speak or evaluate. Request our service to attend your practice or tryout to give evaluations and consultation. It is important to learn the latest trends in hitting metrics and training routines. We provide a numerical grading system built around the athletes tools in order to give you an accurate representation of their true skill set. Learn where the sport is going or get left behind when it is too late.
