Alert: You move down the mound?
Your movements down the mound create a distinct tempo.
What is your motion’s tempo? Your motion’s tempo is the time it takes for your legs to align your upper body over your lower body.
When you stride, when you push off the rubber, when you move straight down the mound, your lower half comes toward the plate faster than your upper body.
With your lower body moving ahead of your upper body, before you can complete your delivery, you use your legs to bring your upper body over your lower body.
- You have a good outing when you “feel” a tempo that brings your body back to vertical at the same pace on every pitch and you produce competitive results.
- When you can’t find the right tempo, you struggle through your outing.
Since a particular “feel” is nearly impossible to carry from one outing to the next, wouldn’t it make sense to turn your motion’s tempo into a non-issue?
Permanently eliminate tempo as the reason for your poor outings.
By finishing your stride with your core already vertical, you eliminate your legs from having to make any adjustments and, as such, kill the need to “feel” the motion’s tempo.
You take tempo out of the mix and not only do you permanently bridge the gap between your best and worst outings, but you and your Team come to expect every outing to be a good one.
As an added bonus, when you complete your stride with a vertical core, your legs generate the rotational torque that’ll power your throwing hand through the same tiny release window on every pitch.
- Would you rather your stride, push off the rubber or lead with your hip and finish your stride with an upper body tilt or would it be better to land with your body vertically aligned?
- Would your outings markedly improve if you knew how to end your stride with a vertical core?
- If a tilted core produced the sustainable results you expect, would you even need to consider a vertical core?
To produce the sustainably excellent results you dream about, then end your stride with a vertical.
Every “what to” desires a “how to”.
