Trust Your Self-Corrections

To protect yourself from injury, your body is in a constant state of self-correction.

Once you understand how to manage your body’s self-corrections, you become the elite Pitcher you always dreamed you’d be.

Level Hips Manage Your Self-Corrections

When your footwork ends your front leg lift with your hips level to one another, you spin down the mound, end your stride with your hips/shoulders at opposing angles, and see your pitches repeatedly travel into your target with uncanny regularity.

Your body’s self-corrections optimize your mechanics and your results.

Tilted Hips Create Chaos

When your footwork ends your front leg lift with a hip tilt, your self-correction mode causes you to lose control of your throwing arm path, and you can’t know with any certainty where any one pitch will end up.

To improve, you make arbitrary mechanical changes, put your self-correction mode into a state of chaos, and never know where any one pitch will end up.

Manage Your Self-Corrections

There’s a surprisingly straightforward way to trick your body to end your front leg lift with your hips level to one another and to challenge the best hitters to make solid contact with your pitches.

Struggling to end your front leg lift with your hips level? Ask Coach Skip for help.

Pitchers: Control What You Can Control

All You Need to Know About Balance

When your hips are level and your shoulders are positioned directly over your hips, your body is in balance.

Anytime you do anything from a balanced position, you completely control your movements, and with an understanding of your body’s programming, can also control the way your body is going to react.

Balance within a Pitching Motion

Therefore, when your front leg lift is in balance and you properly choreograph how you come out of your front leg lift, your body can turn your hip/shoulder separation, delayed shoulder release, and pitch location into a well-managed reaction.

However, when you end your front leg lift with your weight centered over your back foot, you may feel balanced, but you’re not “in balance”.  You make it impossible to properly choreograph your movements down the mound, and everything you see is your body’s uncontrollable reaction to your weight shift.

Control Your Front Leg Lift

A laser focus on your very controllable foot placements, leg positioning, and front knee path into your front leg lift promotes a balanced starting position, and, with the right trigger, clears a path to your pitching dreams.
