We recommend that infielders train with the Libke Pro daily to get the most out of it. Consistency is very important for athlete’s and especially Baseball players. The Libke Pro can be used in practices whether it is for one drill or the entire practice.
Progression with the Libke Pro:
• First time using the Libke Pro we recommend that you strap it tightly to the forearm. As the player gets better with their fundamentals and technique, loosen the strap around their forearm to see if they lose their fundamentals or technique. If the player is still performing the correct actions, then have them unstrap it around their forearm but keep it strapped to the glove. If they feel the leather on the back of their forearm as if they had it strapped around their forearm, then they are fielding with the correct technique. It will give the player phenomenal feedback the more it is trained with.
