Adjusting your pitching movements hurts your results.

A focus on your pitching sequence improves your results more than tinkering with your movements.

Every movement you make as you move down your pitching chain has an impact on your next movement.

When you allow your movements to complement one another, you instantaneously and repeatedly send your throwing hand through a very competitive throwing window.  As an added advantage, the energy your movement channel into your throwing hand creates superior command, late ball movement and a deceptive throwing action.

When you allow even a slight disruption to your pitching sequence, you can’t help but overcome your disturbance with a correction that’ll interfere with your throwing arm action.  These disruptions cause you to miss your target over the plate much more often than a pitcher with an uninterrupted pitching sequence.

As you put your off-season plans together, instead of changing the way you move, make your 2018 season on of the best yet by making your pitching sequence more effective!

What you say is a bit confusing to me, what am I missing here?

The kinetic chain is the pitching sequences consisting of a series of timed, sequenced chain reactive body movements, The sequence and body movements go together,  it seems to me that what you are saying is that the two do not coincide with one another, just exactly what movements are you referring to?

I feel badly about the confusion. Let me clarify what I wanted to say.

Your inner ear monitors your balance. The instant a pitcher's inner ear senses even the slightest imbalance, the pitcher's inner ear uses the pitcher's throwing arm to offset this imbalance which disrupts the pitcher's timing, alters their pitching sequence and makes the pitcher use eye-to-hand coordination to produce their results.

In these cases, when the pitcher sees a unacceptable last pitch result, to make their next pitch results more competitive, the pitcher thinks to adjust what they believe caused their  noncompetitive last pitch result... their throwing arm path.

Instead of a pitcher disrupting their timing and sequencing by adjusting their throwing arm path from one pitch to the next, a pitcher who ends their front leg lift in a balanced position comes into their foot plant using their timing and sequencing to get their lower body to bring their throwing hand through a consistently tiny and very competitive release window.

Excellent question and thanks for giving me a chance to clarify my comments.
