Striding Hurts Your Command

 

Pro Pitching Institute

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

Spin Around Your Core and Command Is Sure to Follow.

Much like a figure skater beginning a spin, for you to spin into your ball release …

  1. Your weight must be evenly distributed around your Core,
  2. Your Arms must be free to initiate your spin, and
  3. When your Upper Body begins your spin, you can only have one foot on the ground.

Striding Prevents Command.

When you stride, the conditions needed for command disappear.

  1. Your stride shifts your weight toward your target,
  2. You use your Throwing Arm to offset your forward weight shift, and
  3. You can’t use your Upper Body until both Feet are on the ground and your weight moves back to center.

Your Solution: Turn Your Stride into a Reaction.

Your stride becomes a reaction when …

  1. You end your Front Leg lift with your weight evenly distributed around your Core,
  2. Your balanced Front Leg lift keeps your Arms free to move the way you want, and
  3. You start your spin while perched on one foot.

A Reactionary Stride Forces Command.

Spin down the mound, your stride forces you to use your Throwing Action to get your Body back to balance and, consequently, send many more pitches directly into your intended target.

Command is Very Teachable

 

Por Pitching Institute

Your Feedback Loops

Your Brain continually receives messages about your balance, determines how you react to any imbalance, and dictates the movements needed to stabilize your Body.

The only way to control your movements is to understand how your Body reacts to your imbalances, then plan your movement around these reactions.

Poorly Timed Imbalances Hurt Command.

A plan that ends your Front Leg lift with your weight over your Back Foot means your movement down the mound creates an imbalance, drives your Body to self-correct, and alters your Throwing Arm path.

Start this way and, unless you find the right tempo, you’re unlikely to produce the command you want.

Balance Drives Command.

However, end your Front Leg lift with your Body in balance, and it becomes very possible to choreograph the end of your stride.

By finishing your delivery with the right imbalance, your Brain uses your Throwing Arm to get your Body back in balance and, in the process, produce the command that’ll keep your pitching dreams alive.

Make Your Command a Foregone Conclusion.

Once you design a Front Leg lift that’ll promote balance, you can choreograph the self-corrections that’ll produce the command you want.

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.

Is Your Starting Position Your Downfall?

 

Unless you learn to start right, your pitching dreams will forever be in sight but always out of reach.

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

Create an imbalance, and, like your Mind uses your Arms to keep you from falling off a balance beam, your gut reaction is to use your Arms to get your Body back to balance.

This basic fact leads to one of the biggest misconceptions in pitching.

The Big Pitching Misconception

When you end your Front Leg lift with your weight centered over your Back Foot, you believe your Body is in balance.

In the simple sense, you’re right, but, when you take a closer look, to move into your delivery, you must shift your weight toward your target.

Your weight shift demands your Mind will use your Throwing Arm path to offset your forward weight shift and watch your command issues destroy your pitching dreams.

The Facts

You get better results more often when you use your legwork to end your Front Leg lift with your weight evenly distributed around (not over) your Back Leg.

From this Starting Position, a rotational movement down the mound frees your Throwing Arm to produce the results needed to realize your wildest pitching dreams.

Next Steps

To generate the results you always dreamed possible, place your focus on improving your weight distribution into your Front Leg lift.

Get Better Results More Often!

 

Instead of throwing the ball, let your Body position at the top of your Front Leg lift produce the results you need to keep your pitching dreams alive.

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

Start by Understanding Your Body.

  1. When balanced on one leg, your Lower Body moves in unison with your Shoulders.
  2. Therefore, to rotate your Hips, you must first spin your Shoulders.

Your Dilemma.

Your problem is that, as silly as it sounds, you’re taught to throw with your Throwing Arm.

  1. When you use your Throwing Arm to deliver your pitches, you stop your Front Shoulder from moving your Hips.
  2. You lose your Lower Body.
  3. Your Throwing Arm works alone, and
  4. You can’t know with any certainty where any single pitch will end up.

Your Solution.

By ending your Front Leg lift with your Back Knee over the Little Toes of your Back Foot, you keep your Arms free to move the way you want.

  1. You can then use your Glove Arm to rotate out of your Front Leg lift.
  2. Your rotation ends your Stride with your Hips and Shoulders at different angles.
  3. Your Body position at Foot Plant forces your Lower Body to whip your Throwing Hand into release and repeatedly produce the results you expect.

Your bottom line … instead of throwing the ball, let your Body position at the top of your Front Leg lift produce the results you need to keep your pitching dreams alive.

How To You Keep Your Lower Body Connected?

 

Discover how your Foot Placements prepare your Lower Body to produce the results you want as often as you expect.

Pro Pitching Institute is one of the top 100 baseball blogs on the Internet.Ending your Stride with a twisted Torso force your Body to use your Throwing Action to right itself.

In the process, your Lower Body produces the results you want as often as you expect.

How Do You End Your Stride with a Twist?

To end your Stride with your Hips and Shoulders at different angles, you use your Glove Side Shoulder to spin your Body out of your Front Leg lift.

Your Foot Plant stops your Lower Body rotation, your Upper Body continues to spin, and for your Body to get itself back to balance, you force your Body to make a throwing action.

Active Strides Hurt Your Results.

When you actively stride, you use your Throwing Arm to offset your forward weight shift, and by doing so, you lock your Glove Arm in place.

With your Glove Arm locked in place, you block any Upper Body rotation, and can only hope to produce the results you expect.

A Free Glove Arm is Critical to Your Mound Success.

The right Foot placements end your Front Leg lift with your Front Knee in front of your Front Shoulder.

The separation between your Knees keeps your Glove Arm free to have your Lower Body drive the results you want.

Here’s a Way to Instantly Improve Your Pitching Results

 

Discover a proven way to trick your Body into producing the results you need to keep your pitching career moving to the next level.

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

Pitching aside, with both Feet on the ground, your Body naturally centers your weight between your Feet and keeps your Arms free to move the way you want.

The Results You Want

By ending your Front Leg lift with a distance between your Knees, you trick your Body into acting as if you had both Feet on the ground.

Your Body keeps your Glove Arm free to engage your Lower Body, you allow your Throwing Arm to react to your Lower Body and, as an instantaneous reaction, your Throwing Action produces the results you want.

The Results You Do Have

However, when, at the top of your Front Leg lift, you place your weight over your Back Foot, you must stride.

Your stride may move you toward your target, but it also engages your Front Hip, locks your Throwing Shoulder in place, and makes using your Lower Body to drive your results physically impossible.

This means, unless you find a productive Stride tempo, you can only hope to produce the results you want.

Get Better Results

Producing better results comes from finding the right combination of Foot Placements and Lower Body positioning that’ll allow you to end your Front Leg lift with a distance between your Knees.

If you need help finding a productive Front Leg lift, Coach Skip is waiting for your call.

Realize Your 2022 Goals

By plan, your Body uses your Throwing action to relieve the tension created at foot plant.

Your Body whips your Throwing Arm into release, and, in the process, automatically upgrades your 2021 results to your 2022 goals,

Dynamic Balance Improves Pitching Results

 

A laser focus on dynamic balance produces the results you want more often than you expect.

Pro Pitching Institute is one of the top 100 baseball blogs on the Internet.When you methodically choreograph your dynamic balance into your foot plant, you’re very likely to experience better results.

You’re dynamically balanced when your movements create a chain reaction within your shoulder, hips, arms, and legs.

How To Generate Dynamic Pitching Balance?

Dynamic balance starts with your feet under your hips.

By beginning this way, your hips remain free to shift your weight over your back leg.

With your weight over your back leg, without disrupting your balance, your front knee is free to complete your front leg lift.

From your front leg lift, you lock your back leg in place and use your free glove arm to create a spinning action proven to generate tremendous tension at foot strike.

You neutralize your body’s tension by automatically producing the results you want.

Dynamic Balance Is Easy to Teach

Your delivery lacks dynamic balance when your motion stops at your foot plant.

If this describes you, you’re not ending your front leg lift in a state of dynamic balance. Correct this, and through repetition, you’ll instantly produce better results more often.

Need help finding your dynamic balance, Coach Skip is waiting for your call.

Unlock Your Pitching Results

 

A very simple way to unlock your pitching potential is to begin each motion by telling your body how you want it to move.

Pro Pitching Institute is one of the top 100 baseball blogs on the Internet.You open a lock by putting a predetermined sequence of numbers into a tumbler.

Likewise, you unlock more productive results when you send your body the right sequence of movements/positions.

Tell Yourself How to Succeed

Regularly send your body a proven sequence of foot placements, lower body orientations, hand positions, front leg lifts, and throwing triggers and you unlock your pitching potential.

The biggest problem you have is that, even if you had the right combination, you begin your delivery without telling your body how you want it to move.

Instead, you set your feet, think about what you want to accomplish, begin your delivery, and only hope to produce the results you want.

You Say It, You Think It

A best practice is, whether in competition or in the bullpen, to always say out loud the pitching combination you want your body to use.

Very quickly, the improved results associated with telling your body how you want it to move become a habit.

Need Your Pitching Combination?

If you’re searching for the right pitching combination, start your search with your feet, move to your legs, and finish with your upper body.

Need help finding a productive pitching combination, Coach Skip is waiting for your call.
