“You” can only move when “your body” senses your weight is between your knees.
“You” have control over your movements. “Your body” uses obvious reaction patterns to produce what you see.
If you’re like most of the Pitchers we work with, “you” generate a productive front leg lift by thinking to (1) lift and push your front heel toward the corner base while “you” simultaneously (2) turn your hands to point your thumbs toward your knees.
Your front leg action creates an all-important separation between your knees while your simultaneous arm action stops any second-to-home core tilt.
When “you” only lift your front leg, “your body” places all your weight over your back foot.
A productive front leg keeps your weight centered within your knees and frees your arm to move the way “you” want.
Ending your front leg lift with a vertical core is a reaction.
Treating your vertical core as something “you” do and not a consequence of your actions is a complete waste of your time.
When you use your legs to keep your core vertical into your front leg lift, you produce exceptional results. When your legs create a core tilt, you never really know where your next pitch will end up?
Bookmark this blog and, next week, we’ll go into how “you” use your front leg lift to get your legs to produce eye-popping results.
Let us know how you’re doing?
When you apply these last couple of blogs and still find yourself struggling with your command, send us a pitching motion video or attach a comment to this post. We’ll use your video and comments to resolve the movements standing in the way of you being exceptional.
