Forehand To Backhand Bounce
While sitting or standing, hold the bat out in front of you at around waist height. Then, bounce the ball on the forehand side, followed by the backhand side. You’ll need to flip the bat over after each bounce. How many bounces can you do in a row? If you find it too hard to flip the bat after each hit, start with 2 or 3 bounces on each side to help you keep control. This is the hardest warm-up exercise, combining everything you’ve done so far (see above). Once again, it can be done with little space and no table… and can still be done while sitting down. This exercise requires more concentration, but will really help your hand-eye coordination, improve your fine motor skills, enhance agility, and increase your upper body strength.
