1. To your subconscious, the only real thing is your present position.
The good news is that you have complete and total control over your current body position.
2. Your subconscious only acts in the present.
Your subconscious only responds to your current body position.
3. Your subconscious always responds to the same positions in the same way.
Predictable subconscious patterns are built into your brain and, depending upon your current position, determine your future movements.
4. Your subconscious keeps your body in balance.
Your current position combines with your predictable subconscious patterns to determine whether, moving forward, you use your arms or your lower body for balance.
Use your subconscious to your advantage.
In pitching, as your front foot hits the ground, successful subconscious management uses your lower body balance to place all your weight to your glove hand side.
Predictably, with all your weight to your glove hand side, you give your subconscious one and only one way to equalize your weight… apply a rotational force (your hips) to a stationary object (your throwing arm) to use a spontaneous throwing action to bring your body back in balance.
Here's the great news.
As a natural byproduct of using your lower body for balance, without any conscious effort, your subconscious spontaneously produces pinpoint command, enhanced velocity, much later ball movement and, no matter your grip or release, your Opponent thinks you’re throwing a fastball.
