Pitching  Movement Enhancement & Correctives
Flat Ground & Mound Water Bag – Ball & Med Ball Movements

Main Movement Pattern Approach & Focus – Loaded Hips Kick Stand & Hand Break → Drive → Land → RIP To Swim

  • It is not about Balance, but a focus on Dynamic Controlled Acceleration
  • Loaded Hips (Setup Posture) = Find the ground (Ride the Rail & Cork Screw the Trail Leg) Load the Pelvis and Control the Hips for the entire move
    • Hinge It → Lock It → Close It → Rip It Down Around Hip Lock Over (DAHLO)
  • Kick Stand & Hand Break = Rhythm Leg Lift to Hip Hinge Drop In with an Up Down Move With Center of Mass Slightly Infront of Trail Foot
    • Create Momentum with Hip Hinge [Both Hips] and Ride the Hinge (Slide) into Lead Foot Contact – the Lead Hip has to be Hinged as well in order to allow the Lead Hip to Close for Lead Leg Blocking) (Ride The Hip Hinge Into Foot Contact = Elite Mover)
  • Drive (Trail Pocket Stretch) = Towards Plate While Cork Screwing the Trail Foot into the Ground as the Trail Knee remains Over the Trail Toes (Kick Stand Trail Side Stack) and simultaneously the Hands Break and Riding The Slide Begins (Hand Break Starts the Arm Action) ( Ride the Slide With Momentum Speed) (Let Wrist Feel Light) Connection is what drives Rotational Whipping of the Arm
  • Land (Hip & Shoulder Separation) – At Lead Foot Contact The Belt Buckle is Pointed Towards Plate while the Lead Shoulder is pointed just off the plate with Elbow Behind the Back — Lower Half Moves as a Merry Go Round → Upper Half Moves as a Ferris Wheel
  • Rip to Swim – Turn the Middle Fast Into Lead Hip Lock Out (Leg Blocking) while maintaining Hip and Shoulder SeparationRip It — Is The Release of the Ball Throw with Command Intent with a Balanced Finish
