Effect of Various Warm-Up Devices on Bat Velocity of Intercollegiate Softball Players
TLDR
It is suggested that female intercollegiate softball players warm up with the popular commercial donut ring in the on-deck circle because it produced the slowest BV, but similar to in other previous baseball research, it is not recommended.
Effects of Various Warm-Up Devices and Rest Period Lengths on Batting Velocity and Acceleration of Intercollegiate Baseball Players
TLDR
The peak bat velocity of 16 National Collegiate Athletic Association Division II intercollegiate baseball players at 1, 2, 4, and 8 minutes, after warming up with bats of 5 different weights was tested and suggested that pitchers should throw their fastest pitch near the beginning of the at-bat to correspond with the potentially slower bat speeds of the batter.
The Effects of Various Warm-Up Devices on Baseball Bat Velocity in Collegiate Baseball Players: A Pilot Study
TLDR
Based upon no changes in the dependent variable in the population tested, Division II collegiate athletes can choose any of the warm-up devices investigated because no deleterious effects were observed.
The Effects of Various Weighted Implements on Baseball Swing Kinematics in Collegiate Baseball Players
TLDR
Investigation of the effects of different warm-up (WU) devices on bat swing parameters including maximal resultant velocity (MRV), resultant velocity at ball contact (RVBC), time difference between MRV and RVBC, bat angle at MRV, bat angles at RVBC and perceptual differences of each WU implement used by National Collegiate Athletic Association Division-I baseball players found no significant differences.
The Effect of Different Warm-up Procedures on Bat Speed in Baseball
The purpose of this study was to compare the effect of a new warm-up condition, overloaded arm weights (721 g each arm, [OA]), on the bat speed during warm-up and immediately after warm-up with
The Acute and Chronic Effects of Isometric Contraction Conditioning on Baseball Bat Velocity
TLDR
The results suggest thatwarm-up with WBS does not increase BV and that using the ISO has both acute and chronic positive effects on BV as a warm-up procedure to improve BV.
Evaluating the effects of under loaded and overloaded warm ups on subsequent swing velocity.
TLDR
Data bolsters the notion that warming up with a HB can hinder swing velocity, and suggests that using a PB can increase swing velocity significantly, and indicates that visual 3D can be designated as an exceptionally reliable device to measure swing velocity.
ect of on-deck warm-up routines in baseball on bat velocity , muscular activity and intensity in time-frequency space
The purpose of this study was to determine how using warm-up implements of different weight affects post warm-up baseball bat velocity. Furthermore muscular timing (on-off) and intensity in
The Influence of Warm-Up on Body Temperature and Strength Performance in Brazilian National-Level Paralympic Powerlifting Athletes
TLDR
The different types of warm-up methods did not seem to provide significant differences in the force indicators in elite PP athletes.

Effect of Warm-up With Different Weighted Bats on Normal Baseball Bat Velocity
TLDR
It is suggested that when preparing to hit, 5 warm-up swings with either a light or normal bat will allow a player to achieve the greatest velocity of their normal bat when compared with warming up with a heavy bat after a rest period of 30 seconds.
Warm-up with Baseball Bats of Varying Moments of Inertia: Effect on Bat Velocity and Swing Pattern
TLDR
Quantitative and qualitative analyses indicated that following warm-up with the weighted bat (largest moment of inertia), swing pattern was significantly altered, and postwarm-up velocity was the lowest of the three conditions.
Effects of Warm Up With Various Weighted Implements On Baseball Bat Swing Velocity
The purpose of this study was to determine which of 13 weighted batting warm-up implements would produce the greatest bat velocity in subsequent trials. Sixty male high school varsity baseball
Acute Effects of Various Weighted Bat Warm-Up Protocols on Bat Velocity
TLDR
Results suggest that upper-body muscle strength influences bat velocity and it appears that the standard, light, heavy warm-up order may provide the greatest benefit to increase subsequentBat velocity and may warrant use in game situations.
The Relation Between Anthropometric and Physiological variables and Bat Velocity of High-School Baseball Players Before and After 12 Weeks of Training
TLDR
Investigation of the relation between anthropometric and physiological variables to linear bat swing velocity of high-school baseball players before and after completing a 12-week periodized resistance exercise program shows that significant relationships do exist between height, body mass, LBM,Rotational power, rotational strength, lower body power, upper and lower body strength, AHV, and ASV to linear BV of high school baseball players.
A NEW APPROACH TO BASEBALL BAT SWING WARM-UP
TLDR
It was concluded that the overweighted arm warm-up might be better than the traditional warmup routine but a short break (e.g., 3-min) is recommended to maximize the performance.
Effect of Whole-Body Vibration Warm-Up on Bat Speed in Women Softball Players
TLDR
Results indicate that WBV warm-up may be used in place of DS to achieve similar bat speeds and future research should investigate different combinations of WBVwarm-up using various frequencies, durations, amplitudes, and rest times.
EFFECT OF GRIP STRENGTH AND GRIP STRENGTHENING EXERCISES ON INSTANTANEOUS BAT VELOCITY OF COLLEGIATE BASEBALL PLAYERS
TLDR
The findings of this study suggest that grip strength and bat velocity are not significantly related, and that the allocation of time and energy for added training of the forearms in order to improve grip strength for the purpose of increasing bat velocity may not be warranted.
After-Effects of Using a Weighted Bat on Subsequent Swing Velocity and Batters' Perceptions of Swing Velocity and Heaviness
TLDR
Subjective judgment of the heaviness and velocity of swings for the Weighted and post-Weighted conditions by each participant showed that the ordinary bat felt lighter and swing speed felt faster for the post- Weighted condition.
DOES WARMING UP WITH A WEIGHTED BAT HELP OR HURT BAT SPEED IN BASEBALL
INTRODUCTION Although baseball players may believe that by warming up with a heavy bat they will increase their swing speed, past research indicates that following warm-up with heavy bats, swing
