Most Pitchers are Conflicted

If you’re like most Pitchers, this describes your pitching experience.

Between starts, Pitching Coaches hold you accountable for adding the mechanics they feel will turn you into a better Pitcher.

However, during games, you hold yourself accountable for your results and, typically, don’t have time to even think about the mechanics your Pitching Coach wants to see.

Balance Closes the Gap

When a Pitching Coach allows an imbalance to creep into your motion, your body will use your throwing arm for balance, and your less-than-acceptable in-game results will force you to adjust.

However, when a Pitching Coach teaches balance, the Coach keeps your throwing arm free to produce the competitive results you want.

A Balanced Process Supercharges Your Pitching

Since your results indicate the degree to which you use your throwing arm for balance, your Coach’s job is to find and limit any imbalance.

The instant he adjusts your balance you immediately see more pitches travel directly into your target.

As your Coach goes through this process, you walk away with a movement sequence that’ll generate the competitive results you need to succeed every time you take the mound.

An External Force Will Limit Your Pitching Dreams

 

Pro Pitching InstitutePro Pitching Institute is one of the top 100 baseball blogs on the Internet.

It’s an outside force you’re familiar with.

– You’ve lived with it since birth.
– It’s a physical reality.
– It’ll easily clear a path to your pitching dreams.

The force most Pitchers fail to consider is “balance”.

As soon as you embrace your balance, you …

– Tap into a world that’s just waiting to be discovered.
– Find the fundamental truths behind every pitching outcome.
– Learn to completely control your pitching motion.

Once you apply balance to your motion…

– Your pitches end up where you want.
– Your only focus becomes the actions impacting your results.
– You instantly fill the gap between what you want and what you see happen.

Without balance, you risk failure.

Balance means you evenly distribute your weight around your core.

When you let a movement shift your weight, balance automatically uses your throwing arm to offset your weight shift and your target area expands.

With balance, most excel.

Use balance to measure your motion and your throwing arm remains free to regularly deliver your pitches directly into your intended target.

Fewer hitters reach base, you keep your Team close enough to win more games, and next-level Teams beat a path to your door.

Your Pitching Performances Follow Your Balance.

Balance measures performance.

While other measurements tell you what to improve, balance tells you how you can improve.

Your pitch location follows the size of your release window, and your release window is driven by how much your body needs your throwing arm to offset the weight shifts your movements create.

Balance tells you about your motion.

Balance supplies the raw data needed to dissect your performances, and, when used to identify your most relevant movement patterns, tells you where and when to adjust your actions.

Properly apply these adjustments and you instantly free your throwing arm to send your pitches directly into your receiver’s target.

Balance forces you to go beyond mechanics.

When you use balance to produce pitch location, your less intangible success markers fall into place.

Balance forces you to take into consideration …
– Environmental concerns, conscious controls, and the basic nature of your pitching motion.
– Physiological, biological, and neurological processes
– Beliefs, values, standards, and expectations.
– Mental strengths and weaknesses.

There’s no other measurement that goes as far as balance!

Balance is the ONLY yardstick that wraps every success measurement into a neat, well-ordered package.

Lower Body Dominance Requires a Balanced Stride

 

Pro Pitching Institute

Pro Pitching Institute is one of the top 100 baseball blogs on the Internet.

What’s the difference between balanced/out-of-balance strides?

The difference is your weight distribution as you begin your stride.

An out-of-balance stride begins with your weight centered over or in front of your back foot.

On the other hand, a balanced stride begins with your weight centered just in front of your back foot.

How is a balanced stride important to lower body domination?

When you begin your stride with your weight centered over or in front of your back foot, you force your body to move down the mound with your hips under your shoulders.

However, begin your stride with your weight centered in front of your back foot, your body lands your stride with your lower body pulling your upper body into release.

You see the difference in your results.

With an out-of-balance stride, you throw the ball toward your target, and never really know where any single pitch will end up.

Yet, with a balanced stride, your lower body-driven pitches keep hitters from reaching base with uncanny regularity.

Need a balanced stride?

Only Coach Skip can teach you how to end your front leg lift with your weight centered in front of your back foot.
