The ability to start your delivery by opening your front shoulder begins with you ending your front leg lift with your weight centered just in front of your back foot.
Your lower body is driven to follow your upper body rotation. Your lower body reacting to your upper body creates the imbalance that sends your body rotating down the mound.
As a natural reaction to rotating down the mound, you lose control of your stride and foot plant. Your front foot hitting the ground generates a spontaneous chain reaction that produces flawless command.
Your chain reaction looks like this.
Your textbook command begins with you opening your front shoulder.
By ending your front leg lift with your weight over your back foot, to move into your motion, you must shift your weight toward your target and, as a result, move straight down the mound.
When you let this happen, your hips lead your upper body your shoulders, and, at foot plant, you use your legs to get your core back to vertical. When you move straight down the mound, your shoulders and hips stay over one another, and you end your stride with your front shoulder closed to your target.
By using your legs to right your body, you must use your upper body to complete your motion.
Therefore, when you start your motion with your weight over your back foot, by opening your front shoulder to your target, you turn your results into a competitive nightmare.
