With the evolution of T20 cricket there is now a need to not only have batting skills but also Power Hitting and power placement skills are required if you are to succeed at the highest level. Mindsets and the players approach to batting are changing, their whole goal is to hit the ball hard, to maximise the ‘damage’ that can be caused.
The key to the hitting phenomenon is body awareness. There is a clear separation between batting skills and hitting/placement skills, this is vital in the understanding of both.
This is where the Power Up Wedge is so unique, it puts you in the correct position it generate power through your back side.
If you put the wedge on your back foot it encourages your back heel to get off the ground, it also encourages you to get your head to the ball. If you put the Wedge on your front foot this encourages you to hit against a braced front leg. If you put both wedges on this will lock you in to the correct hitting position creating maximum power, you will see an increase of 4/5 mph in your ball exit speed. This will give you the ‘feel ‘ and ‘awareness’ of the movement.
A fantastic tool that is simple and effective, lightweight, small and easily fits into your kit bag.
