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.
