A Theory Strikes Out: Bats Don’t Quicken the Swing

Get quicker, stronger and hit with more power. Ritend is for baseball & softball and promotes hands to the ball because the bat weight is at the knob end of the bat. Traditional bat weights are at the far end of the bat. Although traditional weights fell like they are making your hands quicker it actually creates casting by forcing your hands away from your body due to centrifugal force. This causes the swing to get long, hence not quick and slow. Click the YouTube Video link to see the Ritend Bat Weight in action.

Benefits - Ritend Bat Weight increases bat speed, strength and power

Ritend Bat Weight promotes hands to the ball and hands inside the ball

With Ritend Bat Weight the bat stays in the proper zone during the swing by creating the correct muscle memory

Ritend Bat Weight can be used off Tee, Front Toss, on deck circle and Live Batting Practice.

Scientists who have studied the ritual say it can actually slow down a batter’s swing

Used by players at all levels

AMarc Pro is a cutting-edge EMS device that delivers the most effective muscle recovery available. Our patented technology creates non-fatiguing muscle activation, which is scientifically proven to enhance each stage of the muscle recovery process. Marc Pro makes it easy to recover faster, perform at your best, and keep your body healthy and active for the future.

Research shows that muscle activation is the key facilitator for all stages of the body’s natural recovery process, which means using ice, compression boots, or foam rolling are not very effective for improving your recovery. Your body requires movement (aka active recovery) to rebuild after a workout or intense activity.

  • Recover Faster
  • Perform At Your Best
  • Maintain Proper Biomechanics

The Libke Pro Fielder is a Baseball/Softball Fielding Aid for defense. The Libke Pro Fielder goes on the back side of the hand and forearm. The Libke Pro Fielder is a tool designed to hold your baseball/softball glove in the proper glove presentation/position. The tool is attached to your glove by a Velcro strap and an elastic Velcro strap is used to attach the tool around your forearm. When wearing with your glove, you always put the tool on the glove first and then you will insert your hand with only one finger going through the skinny elastic strap that doesn’t have Velcro on it.

The Libke Pro Fielder can also be used without the glove when you are using it with tennis balls or racquet balls. The skinny elastic strap that doesn’t have the Velcro on it is for 2 or 3 fingers to go through and the elastic strap with Velcro then goes around their forearm. The Libke Pro Fielder is very valuable to the player for the fact that you can use it 5 – 6 times a week more than once a day.
