How to improve batting footwork
One of the best ways to improve batting footwork is skipping
Tell me that why skipping, not jumping without skipping?
- Good question see if you are jumping well as shown in the above image you can see the wrist that may be jam
- The place of jumping will be keep changing
- The speed of jumping may change
- The height of jumping may change too
These problems may come when you are only jumping without skipping
What happen if we do skipping?
This is good choice
- The wrist will not be jam and wrist work will be done
- Proper speed will be maintained in jumping
- Proper height of jumping will be maintained
- And place of jumping will be on the same place
These are the benefits to use skipping for jumping
When should I have to do this skipping?
Well whenever you are going for batting practice in nets before that you have to do it
This will bring a good speed change in your batting footwork and
When you will go in batting at starting stage you may feel bit odd
But it will be a game changer for you in longer run
On which days and how many jumps I have to do?
As the level of fitness is increasing and to maintain fitness you should do it every day and if we say about the number then it
Would be 100 jumps using skipping for sure
My views that how to improve batting footwork then start doing skipping
And skipping is bang you should give a try and it is a game changer for you
As if we have tools then we do it for long time and without any tool like skipping rope
Then we don’t do it perfectly for longer run, right?
In my case that thing happens in your case it won’t that problem comes if it is coming
Then simply use the skipping rope and see the change
