Front Leg Action

 

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

I’m Coach Skip and I’ll teach you how to deliver a much larger portion of your pitches directly to your intended target.

Your Front Leg Promotes Your Throwing Action

Begin with your weight in front of your Back Foot, your Body waits to be in balance.

You complete your Stride, and you throw the ball, but your pitch location suffers.

Your Body’s Balance Initiates Your Throwing Action.

Start with your weight just in front of your Back Foot, you merely lift your Front Leg, and your Throwing Action becomes part of your motion.

Your pitch location happens automatically, and the ball goes where you want.

How To Accomplish This?

Missing Command?

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

Unless you consistently get into the same front leg lift position, your command automatically suffers.

– Do you have a way to manage your foot placements?
– Before your front foot comes off the ground,

do you have a way to place your legs in the same position?
– Can you consistently move your front leg into your front leg lift, in the same way, all the time?
– Most importantly, do you have a consistent way to measure each of these facets?

If the answer to these questions is “no”, then you lack the command needed to experience next-level success.

Produce Command

Your Coach teaches you how to be consistent.

– He’ll teach you to understand how to get into your front leg lift, in the same way, all the time,

– He’ll teach you how to expect your pitches to end up where you want, and

– He’ll tell you how to always challenge the best hitters to reach base.

Need help showing command consistency? Coach Skip is waiting for your call.

Productive Tension Builds Fastball Command.

 

Por Pitching Institute

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

When you stretch a rubber, then let go of an end, the rubber band snaps back to normal the same way every time.

Constructive Pitching Tension

When you duplicate the same constructive tension within your pitching motion you can get your Throwing Arm to snap back to natural, and regularly send your pitches directly into your target.

You create this situation by coming out of your Front Leg lift with your respective Palms pointing to Second and Home.

Current Actions Become Natural Reactions.

Once you release this tension, just like the rubber band, your Body snaps your Throwing Arm into release.

You effectively flow through your motion, spot your fastballs, and challenge the very best Hitters to reach base.

Fixing Your Front Leg Lift.

If you’re searching for fastball command, use your Hand positions out of your Front Leg lift to prepare your Body to produce the productive tension required to spot your fastballs and enhance your pitching brand.

An Improvement Strategy That Works.

 

Pro Pitching Institute

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

Your delivery is a sequence of movements where each action creates a response, and your last response determines each pitch outcome.

Balance increases the frequency of your best outcomes.

Your first goal is to use your Foot Placements to keep your weight in balance into your Front Leg lift.

With a balanced Front Leg lift, you increase the chance you move down the mound with your Throwing Arm free to respond to your Lower Body.

The more you keep your Throwing Arm free to respond to your Lower Body, the more you increase the frequency of your pitches producing the results you expect.

Imbalance hurts your result.

In the same way each movement builds upon the next when any single movement creates an imbalance, your imbalance lowers your frequency of good outcomes.

In fact, the earlier your movements create an imbalance, the more you struggle to produce the results you want.

Instantly Improve Your Results.

When your results fail to meet your expectations, follow your motion’s flow.

Correct the imbalances you see from your Foot Placements into your Front Leg lift, then from your Front Leg lift into your movement down the mound and your results will instantly improve.

Need help finding your imbalances? Coach Skip is waiting for your call.

Keeping Your Weight Back is a Specialized Skill

 

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

Keeping your weight back is much more than keeping your weight over your back foot as long as you can.

Pitch location struggles.

The instant you end your front leg lift with your back knee over your back foot, you hurt your pitch location.

Your problem is, with your weight over your back foot, striding becomes the only way to move toward your target.

Unless you find the right stride tempo, your release window will vary, and you can’t know where your pitches will end up.

Supercharge your pitch location.

Your more productive option is to end your front leg lift with your back knee to the second base side of your back foot.

From this back knee position, once you extend your glove hand out and away from your body, your lower body produces the pitch location you expect.

Your footwork determines your back knee position.

Keeping your back knee to the second base side of your back foot isn’t something you do, it’s something that happens.

Through a well-planned combination of foot placements, knee bends, and front leg lifts, your improved back knee position gets your lower body to instantly and repeatedly locate many more of your pitches.

Want to instantly improve your back knee position? Coach Skip is waiting for your call.

Your Pitching Performances Follow Your Balance.

 

Pro Pitching Institute

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

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.

Proof: Starting Positions Determine Pitch Location

 

Pro Pitching Institute

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

As Water Flows …

When you start with the same amount of water in a bucket and use the same force to pour the water down an incline, gravity will produce the same shaped puddle every time.

Every time the amount of water or its force down the incline changes, gravity alters the water’s flow, and the shape of the final puddle as well.

… Your Pitching Motion Also Flows.

Think of …

  • Your starting position as a bucket of water before you pour it down the incline,
  • Your mechanics as the way gravity ends the water down the incline, and
  • Your pitch location is the puddle.

When you relate the water’s flow to your pitching motion, even the slightest change to your starting position or your stride tempo hurts your pitch location.

You constantly change your starting position and gravity not only changes your mechanics but alters your pitch location.

Improved Pitch Location

You produce the same starting position, come out of it in the same way, and your pitch location becomes unbelievably consistent.

However, when you end your starting position with your weight balanced over your back foot, your body wobbles, and your pitch location becomes much less predictable.

Want a more stable starting position and better pitch location? Contact Coach Skip.

Cross the Line Between Trying and Doing

 

Pro Pitching Institute

Cross this line and finally bring your pitching dreams into focus.

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

What is this line?

On one side of the line, you have your pitching dreams.

On the other side of this line, you’re trying to find a way to achieve your dreams.

Where’s Your Line?

Place a dot on a baseball and, with the dot facing up, put the baseball between your feet.

Now, get into your front leg lift and take a picture of your starting position.

Finally, with the picture in hand, draw a line from your nose through your belly button.

Is Your Line Working For or Against You?

When the line you draw is a vertical line that runs through your dot, your lower body will automatically produce the exceptional pitch location, throwing arm speed, and mechanics needed to realize your pitching dreams.

However, when your imaginary line misses the baseball dot, your dreams hinge upon finding some obscure, yet sustainable, mechanical combination.

Coach Skip’s Expertise is Spot On

Coach Skip has the pitching expertise to simply use your starting position to produce the repeatable pitch location, throwing arm speed, and mechanics you need to achieve your pitching dreams.

Can’t believe your pitching dreams are hidden within your starting position? … then dare Coach Skip to teach you a starting position proven to unlock your pitching future!

Come back from the pandemic a better Pitcher

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

To come back to the mound from the pandemic better and stronger than you left may seem daunting, but, when you use your biological need for balance to your advantage, it’s very possible.

During the pandemic and with the stay-in-place directives, you don’t have the luxury of seeing the results of any change you make to your motion and, when you do, the sample is so small that you can’t tell with any certainty what impact the change has.

In these trying times, how can you improve your results?

You start by analyzing elite pitching motions and notice, without exception, how each Pitcher’s body unravels from the bottom up.

Next, you realize what you see is determined by their body’s biological need for balance. This means that, whether in slow-motion or at game speed, these Pitchers know how to use their throwing action to get their bodies back in balance.

Use your slow-motion delivery to predict your results.

With this in mind, let’s use your super-slow-motion delivery as your personal benchmark.

When, because you use your throwing arm for balance into your stride,  your slow-motion delivery stops as your front foot hits the ground, you can’t know with any certainty where any one pitch will end up.

On the other hand, just like these elite Pitchers, when you end your stride using your throwing action for balance, you use your biological needs to deliver your pitches directly into your intended target.

A pandemic challenge guaranteed to improve your pitching

To come back from the pandemic a better Pitcher than when you left, find a way to use your biological need for balance to force your super-slow motion to end with you having to make a throwing action.

We can guarantee you come back from the pandemic a better Pitcher

After 25+years of studying how a Pitcher’s biological need for balance relates to their pitching results, we know from your slow-motion delivery your readiness for delivering your pitches directly into your targets.

During your slow-motion delivery, if you can’t figure out how to end your stride with a throwing action, use one of our “Winning Pitch Location Strategies©” to help you come back from the pandemic better and stronger than ever.
