When you walk a balance beam, as your subconscious fights for balance, you lose control of your arm movements.
When Balance Hurts Your Fastball Location
When you stride out of your front leg lift, similar to the balance beam, your stride means you lose control of your throwing arm path. Your fastball pitch location goes out the window.
Trying to control your fastball location without addressing the cause for your imbalance becomes a fruitless, never-ending battle.
Let Balance Promote Your Fastball Location
End your front leg lift with your weight evenly distributed around your core and, as you move down the mound, your spinning action keeps your body in balance and your arms free to respond to your lower body.
Your spinning action stops when your stride ends. It’s at this point that your throwing action gets your body back to balance and, in the process, automatically sends your fastballs directly into your Catcher’s target.
