Beginning your motion with your weight balanced over your back foot means you control the ball.
Out of Balance Front Legs
When you make the mistake of placing your weight in front of your back leg, here’s what’s going to happen.
Your front leg lift places your weight over your back leg and, as soon as you move toward the target, your body can’t do anything until your front foot hits the ground and you balance your weight between your feet.
With your weight in balance, you complete your delivery and send your ball home.
Balanced Front Legs
Beginning your motion with your weight balanced over your back leg eliminates these self-corrections and makes your delivery part of your motion.
Your weight balanced over your back leg gives you the confidence to send your ball to your target.
Having trouble beginning your motion with your weight balanced over your back leg, I’m waiting for your call.
