How Does It Work?

The Power Up Wedge is a personalized training device for baseball, softball, golf or cricket that allows the individual player to understand their lower ½ and introduces them to the responsibility of the lower ½ and the importance it plays in the success of each and every hitter, pitcher, athlete. The Power Up Wedge is a DIRECT link to better balance, stability, core awareness and strength, presenting today’s player with unmatched feel and a keen synchronization of mind and body, allowing the muscle memory to come quick..

Once you fasten the Wedge to either front foot, back foot or both, your lower ½ is ready to drive you to untapped levels of success by training you to be an ATHLETE and giving you an opportunity to make an immediate impact.

Developed by a Major League Baseball Scout

PowerUp Wedge creator, Steve Gossett, found that athletes were having trouble connecting with their lower half, leading to poor performance on the field. “Every skill and move in athletics begins in the feet with a strong, balanced, stable base.”

After years of research, development and testing, Steve released the Power Up Wedge, a revolutionary, portable training device for athletes and coaches. The impact is instantaneous. Players “feel” the difference and build muscle memory, adding power to their game.

I’ve been a scout for many years and one thing we always look for is how a player utilizes his back side when pitching or hitting. This is a skill that is very difficult for younger players to understand and the new Power Wedge provides the tool to help the athlete increase bat speed, increase hitting power, increase velocity throwing, and overall help the player become more complete as an athlete.

When I go to observe a high end prospect I am amazed with the fast results I see when I ask the player to use the wedge. I see guys sitting at 91-92 mph and put the wedge on for 15 pitches to feel what its supposed to feel like on that back side and when they remove the wedge their velocity increase to 93-94 mph, its a great tool to see immediate results in pitching velocity and hitting power.

This is a fantastic hitting device to allow hitters to understand the backside of the swing. Its easy to use and the results are fast. Its also great for pitchers to use and develop proper mechanics for loading on their back leg.

I’m going to get all my players using the Power Up Wedge and take their game to the next level. The Wedge is great because it works for all ages and all skill levels.

“The Dallas Tigers have an alumni list of players currently playing in colleges and universities throughout the United States and in the professional ranks. The majority of graduating Dallas Tigers over recent years have received Division I college baseball scholarships.”

Ryan Graves

Pitching Coach University of Kansas

The most difficult part of the pitching delivery to teach, and for pitchers to grasp, is to get the lower body in a position of power. The Power Up Wedge puts your pitchers in a great position automatically. I have tried many methods and training aids to get pitchers to feel their lower body in a power position, and nothing has come close to the results of the Power Up Wedge. I recommend it for all levels.

CEO Texas Baseball Ranch
“Every young baseball player in America and Canada it seems is told my his coaches, instructors, teammates and parents that he could get a lot more out of his hips and his legs. And that advice is overwhelmingly correct. Very few amateur and professional players approach their optimal use of their posterior chain. The problem is the teachers and tools available to lead/instruct/guide the average player to feel how to utilize his lower half is scarce.
The tool that Steve Gossett has created is absolutely remarkable in several ways in assisting with that process.
First, it is so functional and portable and can be used almost anywhere.
Second, the Power Wedge™ is absolutely exceptional at placing the feet/ankle in the positions where the athlete can immediately FEEL a far better organization and recruitment. And Third, at the Texas Baseball Ranch we often utilize bulky platforms and inclines to recreate the feel we want and Steve’s simple and brilliant devise allows flexibility and convenience and for our athletes to take it home where the real work is always done. Bravo Steve! I love what you’ve done here.”

Lisa Dodd

UNLV Head Softball
We have only been using the wedge for about a week and a half but I can already see the impact it’s having on my hitters. They are able to get immediate feedback with the wedge and each hitting session with it continues to improve our balance, posture, and body awareness. They like it so much they are asking me to use it at practice, I don’t even have to remind them! And the best part is that each day we continue to find more uses for it, from improving overhand throwing to pitching!

Sam speaks to how the Power Up Wedge has helped his game by enabling him to maintain an engaged, stable, strong, in sync lower 1/2 and allows him through feel to maintain a consistent swing, develop increased club head speed, more distance and accuracy. Take 12 -15 swings, remove the wedge and retain the feel.

Cricket Batting Specialist

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.
