Welcome to the Force Train Better India website. Our products have been sold in other countries for a number of years now. They are being used by national squads, cricket academies, cricket schools, coaching centres and elite level players across all cricket playing regions. The bats are also used by many leading women’s cricketers whose names we cannot mention because of contractual reasons. 

If you are a serious cricketer and you want to take your game to new levels then Force Train Better gear should be in your kit bag. A read through our pages will tell you why. If you want to find out more about our gear and how to set up training programs using them feel free to email us at enquiries@forcetrainbetter.com  

The good news is that implementing Force Training Aids into your net sessions and training programs is extremely easy. Batsman should start by using a T2 bat in the middle third on a regular net session. Afterthree months or when you feel youare ready move up the T4. After six months the T6. Bowlers should start by bowling 6 balls per session of the underweight ball and six using the TBH 2. After three months increase the number of balls per session and gradulally start introducing the TB. It is extremely important that standard weight bats and balls be used in unison with weighted gear. This is to ensure that speed movement is maintained. 

We are here to assist. Just send an email to enquire@forcetrainbetter.com

The Force Train Better range of training bats are a perfect addition to your training kit. Mixing up your training with our range of overweight/underweight bats can increase body strength and help perfect your technique. Baseball players have been using similar weighted products for over 60 years. The Force Train Better bats are available in a range of sizes and weights, to suit all ages. We also have different shape bats, like our slim range, to enhance your technique training.

Underweight/overweight training programs are now being used by some of leading coaches in world cricket. Reputed Cricket Coaching Academies including   Power Hitting Systems UK are trend setters in this regard. 

Conventional batting training methods help develop basic muscle strength and muscle tone to allow a batter to control stroke play and execute shots correctly, but, only within certain limits. If you want to be able to impart greater speed and direction into your attacking shots you need to be able to swing the bat faster as well as distribute your weight correctly in order to provide the right amount of resistance. By implementing the use of the Force Train Better range of bats into your net sessions you will generate faster bat speeds because your muscles will become stronger within the correct muscle groups. You cannot achieve this in the gym.

The added weight of the heavier bats will also force you to move your feet so that you maintain balance throughout shot play. This is because you cannot swing the heavier bats properly if you are off balance. They literally pull you over giving you the sensation that you need to move your feet to maintain balance. After repeated use the feet learn to move without you thinking to much about it. You will then be able to generate the right level of resistance to compliment the additional power in your swing.  –

Keep in mind that bat swing speed is not only reliant on strength.  Speed movement drills should also be incorporated into your sessions.  The Force Train Better super lightweight bats should be used for this.

The use of overweight training balls is becoming increasing popular with some of the worlds leading bowling coaches. Overweight balls like overweight bats  are designed to develop strength and to condition the appropriate muscles used for bowling. By strengthening the right muscles bowlers can improve on speed, ball control and endurance..

Use of the weighted balls also allows spin bowlers to put more rotations on a ball and give them better control over direction and flight. The use of the overweight balls should be undertaken in conjunction with the use of light weight balls.

Out three pack box of one lightweight and two overweight balls allow all bowlers a range of weights to develop programs with.

JULIAN WOOD – ENGLAND BATTING COACH

The game is changing so you need to change the way you train!’ It’s a Power game now with emphasis on hand speed, ball exit speed, Power Transfer Ratios, strike rates, strike quality, boundary and dot ball percentage. With the evolution of T-20 you are required to not only to have a Power game but a skill and touch game also, the game demands this now if you are to succeed at the highest level. I want to put information out there, players and coaches are now searching for it. To understand the Power Hitting concept you need ‘ body awareness’ and understand how your body is moving. The NEW Cricket Academy will change the way players/coaches view coaching, using NEW and unique methods created by Julian Wood, the global Power Hitting Specialist. As coaches/players it is an interesting and exciting era to be involved. You have to be willing to travel to uncharted waters with ideas that would of been considered off beat say 5/10 years ago but now are considered a part of the routine. You’re allowed to work outside of the box, you’re allowed to do what you feel you need to do, even if it isn’t the norm.
The NEW Force Train Bats have taken the Power Hitting System to another level, I recently used them with the England Lions/ ODI Squad and the results and feedback from the players were very positive.
Years ago I was an aspiring Cricketer and would spend lots of time in the nets. I always liked using technique bats against the bowling machine, but the lighter weight made me feel like I was cheating. That’s when I first thought, would training with a heavier bat improve my game? I experimented with a few concepts, but none were practical and I put it aside. Years later I noticed MLB hitters warming up with a weighted bat and the idea came back to me. Again though, I couldn’t settle on a practical concept. I then had a “penny drop” moment of ditching a bat weight and creating a weighted training bat. This changed what was possible and we we’re able to make a prototype I liked. The prototype seemed too heavy, but I started hitting balls anyway. A few minutes later, I forgot I was using a heavier bat. When I realized, I picked up my normal bat and it felt like a toothpick. I ran out of excuses not to give it a go, and Force Train Better was born.

OUR PEOPLE – JAMES BAVERSTOCK – DESIGNER FORCE BATS

OUR PEOPLE – DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT TEAM

When it comes to researching materials, testing materials and ultimately desiging and manufacturing cricket gear our Design and Development Team are world leaders. In Perth Western Australia we have set up and equiped a highly advanced cricket gear testing facility. The facility allows us to test cricket equipment for wide range of performance outputs. These include Criclet Bats for rebound rating/flex properties/slice rigidity/moisture content and symettry; protective equipment and helmets for impact resistance rating: batting gloves for bat grip ratings and cricket balls for hardness/symettry and shape retention quality. 

We use the data gathered in our testing processes to research alternate material options and to develop a wide range of new and innovative products. In 2021 watch out for the release of the new Power Splice Cricket Bats. Out performing conventional bats in all testing perameters the Power Splice Cricket Bat Range of a unique patented Cricket Bat Handle Splice Section that provides for a more rigid connection with the blade thus minimising energy loss and maximising power outputs for hitting cricket balls harder. This product allows for bats to be lighter with narrow blades which means batters can swing the bats faster to generate more power and rebound. Narrower bats also means that less willow is used which is a real plus given the global shortage of the material.         

Just another example of how our people are giving the cricketers of the world more innovative cricket equipment to help improve their game.
