Is Your Front Leg Lift Hurting Your Fastball Location?

 

Pro Pitching Institute is one of the top 100 baseball blogs on the Internet.Your base of support is your feet. Your body automatically stabilizes your weight within your base of support and keeps your arms free to move any way you want.

Your Balance Beam Hack

Walk a balance beam and your base of support becomes the balance beam.

To stay on the balance beam, to center your weight over the beam, your mind takes over your arm movements.

Your Hack … Flex your legs, let your knees float outside the balance beam and you fool your mind into thinking your knees are your base of support.

Rate Your Front Leg Lift

Optimal Front Leg Lifts. When you can hold your front leg lift with each knee in line with each shoulder, you fool your mind into thinking your knees are your base of support. Your throwing arm remains free to deliver your fastballs directly into your intended target.

Less Efficient Front Leg Lifts. End your front leg lift with your knees close together, and you’ve lost your base of support. Like the balance beam, when you move down the mound, you use your throwing arm for balance, and you effectively compromise your fastball location.

Upgrade Your Front Leg Lift

If you are struggling to find a way to end your front leg lift with your knees in line with your shoulders, set up a short phone call with Coach Skip.

A Balanced Approach to Fastball Location

 

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

Discover Balanced Fastball Location

Want to automate your fastball location? Set up a short phone call with Coach Skip.

Help him to understand your pitching goals, your legwork, your movements down the mound and he’ll use this information to tell you how you can supercharge your pitching future.

Hit the Pitching Jackpot

 

Pro Pitching Institute is one of the top 100 baseball blogs on the Internet.Your Pitching Career is One Big Bet

Every time you take the mound, you’re betting your pitching career that you can consistently deliver your fastballs directly into a low target.

As you move up the baseball ladder, Opponents become more patient and better trained, the larger your bets become and the more you stand to lose.

Locating Your Pitches Promotes Winning

To locate your pitches, out of your front leg lift, your hand separation triggers a throwing action that sends your fastballs directly into a low target with uncanny accuracy.

Sadly, if you’re like most Pitchers, your sequence out of your front leg lift is reversed. First you stride, then you separate your hands. Your late hand separation means your body uses your throwing arm to keep itself in balance, and, because you delay your throwing arm into release, can’t where any one pitch will end up.

Hedge your bets.

You trust your Coach to manage your throwing action, but if he can’t manage your sequencing as you come out of your front leg lift, you’ll forever be dealt a losing hand!

To discover how simple it is to hit the pitching jackpot (to change your sequencing out of your front leg lift), set up free 15-minute conversation with Coach Skip to talk about next steps.

Is Your Pitching Motion Connected to Your Results?

 

Pro Pitching Institute is one of the top 100 baseball blogs on the Internet.Getting your pitches to travel directly into your target is a simple game of “connect the dots”.

If you’re like most Pitchers, you treat your movements as if they were a pile of unrelated dots.

Case in point, you treat your stride, arm slot, front leg lift, foot plant as if they were independent actions, separate dots.

To achieve your Big-League pitching dreams, you must connect your dots.

The Invisible Dot Connector

Your dot connector is invisible. This invisible dot is your body’s urge to keep itself in balance.

Your urge to stay in balance begins tying your motion, your dots, together the instant your front foot comes off the ground.

Your invisible urge to keep your body in balance uses …

– Your foot placements create a dynamically balanced front leg lift,
– Your stable front leg lift keeps your arms free to produce the cascading movements you’re used to seeing, and
–  Forces your body to use your throwing action to get itself back in balance.

A focus on this invisible dot automates your ball release and, consequently, let you expect each pitch to travel directly into your intended target.

Expect to Win

Million$ Pitch Location is Simple

 

Pro Pitching Institute is one of the top 100 baseball blogs on the Internet.Producing Million$ pitch location is a learned skill.

When you know how to end your front leg lift with your weight centered around your core, you’re able to send your throwing hand through a predetermined release window with uncanny certainty.

Words matter.

By telling yourself to place your feet in the right spots, at the top of your front leg lift, your next words center your weight between your knees and keep your glove side free to move the way you want.

Your next command spins your body down the mound and your spinning action turns your pitch location into an expectation.

What Happens When You Spin Down the Mound?

When you spin out of your front leg lift, your spin signals your body to get your front foot back on the ground.

Your front foot hitting the ground stops your lower body rotation, and your twisted posture forces your upper body to send your throwing hand through the same productive, and surprisingly accurate release point.

Simplify Your Pitching

When you use the right foot placements, the right words in the right sequence will produce the Million$ pitching results you need to succeed in a sport built around failure.

Want to simplify your pitching results? Simply set up a free 15-minute conversation to talk about next steps.

Produce Million$ Pitching Results

Pro Pitching Institute is one of the top 100 baseball blogs on the Internet.“Trying” indicates you may not know as much as you think.

When you’re “trying”, you’re “testing”.

When you’re “testing”, your cutting an already too short pitching career even shorter.

You also risk failing to realize the upper limits of your pitching potential.

Think of your body as a clearinghouse.

Your movements send messages to your body. Your body interprets these messages and decides which arm slot your throwing arm moves through.

When you “try”, you’re attempting to figure out how to send your body the right messages in the right order.

However, when you know how to move, you give your body everything it needs to produce the Million$ Pitching results you’re desperately “trying” to find.

Stop “trying”, start producing Million$ Results

If you were in one of my programs, we’d use video chat or an in-person pitching motion to show me how you move.

In less than 10-minutes, without asking you to change your throwing action, I’ll show you how to immediately and consistently show every Opponent a Million$ fastball arm speed, have your pitches produce Million$ late stage ball movement and, at the same time, expect Million$ command.

Want Million$ results? Let’s talk!

A Million$ Pitcher’s trust in their thought-based pitching process makes their pitching free of stress, worry, anxiety, and fear.

Million$ Pitchers expect their thought patterns to produce the results needed to confidently face the best Hitters in the World.

You never really lock in one thought process that’ll allow you to constantly and consistently compete at the highest levels.

You do, however, have periodic outings where your motion seems to work, but, sadly, because your motion isn’t built around a specific thought process, the likelihood you experience back-to-back stellar outings is minimal.

Guarantee Lower Body Engagement

 

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

Lower Body Engagement is Instinctive

Your right-side brain.

  • Your right-side brain uses your left-brain driven front leg lift to determine how you end your stride.
  • Your right-brain reacts and is the more athletic side of your brain. 

Your left-side brain.

  • Your left brain controls your movements into your front leg lift.
  • Your left-side brain acts and is not nearly as athletic as your right-side brain.

Properly synchronize your left and right-side brains and you give yourself everything needed to engage your lower body.

Your front leg lift determines your lower body engagement.

Lower Body Engagement: When you end your front leg lift with your weight centered between your knees, your right-side brain uses your lower body to send your pitches directly into your target.

Searching for Lower Body Engagement; When you end your front leg lift with your weight over or well in front of your back foot, you’re forced to make the split-second, neurologically impossible arm slot adjustments that you hope are good enough to send your pitches directly into your target.

Cater to Your Right-Side Brain 

Well-planned left-brain actions into your front leg lift forces your right-brain to use your lower body to get your pitches to travel directly into your target. Do this and you find yourself challenging the best trained Hitters to make solid contact with any pitch you throw.

Your Inner Ear Determines Your Pitching Results

 

Your inner ear doesn’t care about your results.  It only cares about your balance.

Your inner ear constantly monitors your balance, continually sends your brain balance updates, and, to make sure you stay in balance, lets your mind commandeer your body parts.

Your inner ear turns pitching into a very black and white activity.

One choice is your inner ear realizes your body is in balance. In this instance, your inner ear frees your throwing arm to automatically send your pitches directly into your target.

The other choice is that your inner ear senses an imbalance. In this case, your inner ear  uses your throwing arm to keep your body in balance and, because your inner ear took control of your arm path, you never know with any certainty where any one pitch will end up.

With a focus on how your movements impact your inner ear, you develop a sustainable roadmap to pitching success.

There IS no middle ground.

Your movements either maintain your balance or create an imbalance. There is no middle ground.

This tells you there’s one, and only one, movement pattern that’ll get your inner ear to deliver your pitches where you want.

Control Your Inner Ear.

When your pitches regularly miss your target by an unacceptable distance, your inner ear is using your throwing arm for balance.

Unlike any pitching program anywhere, by helping you manage the signals your movements send to your inner ear, we guarantee you’ll produce the results you need to fulfill your wildest pitching dreams.

A Better Pitching Instruction Mouse Trap

Por Pitching Institute

 

Pitchers/Pitching Parents/Team Coaches,

This text is from a Dad whose 21 Year Old Son had heard for years how he needed to use more lower body.

Within the first 15-minutes of his Sons first session, not only had I engaged his Son’s lower body but had better than 50% of his pitches traveling directly into his target and even improved his throwing arm speed.

What I did for this Pitcher is a typical of what I do for every Pro Pitching Institute Pitcher and is just one more example of how I’ve reinvented pitching instruction.

Struggling with something? Let’s talk!
