Is Your Front Leg Lift Hurting Your Fastball Location?

 

Pro Pitching Institute is one of the top 100 baseball blogs on the Internet.Your base of support is your feet. Your body automatically stabilizes your weight within your base of support and keeps your arms free to move any way you want.

Your Balance Beam Hack

Walk a balance beam and your base of support becomes the balance beam.

To stay on the balance beam, to center your weight over the beam, your mind takes over your arm movements.

Your Hack … Flex your legs, let your knees float outside the balance beam and you fool your mind into thinking your knees are your base of support.

Rate Your Front Leg Lift

Optimal Front Leg Lifts. When you can hold your front leg lift with each knee in line with each shoulder, you fool your mind into thinking your knees are your base of support. Your throwing arm remains free to deliver your fastballs directly into your intended target.

Less Efficient Front Leg Lifts. End your front leg lift with your knees close together, and you’ve lost your base of support. Like the balance beam, when you move down the mound, you use your throwing arm for balance, and you effectively compromise your fastball location.

Upgrade Your Front Leg Lift

If you are struggling to find a way to end your front leg lift with your knees in line with your shoulders, set up a short phone call with Coach Skip.

Look the Same Yet Get Noticed

 

Pro Pitching Institute is one of the top 100 baseball blogs on the Internet.You strive to have your motion look a certain way.

The problem is everyone is following the same model.

This means your motion looks very similar to everyone else.

Your challenge, in this world of sameness, is to do something that’ll get you noticed.

Avoid the “shutdown complex”

It’s your need for your motion to look a certain way that causes you to shut down!

You start to see only the things that rubber stamp your belief in your target motion and you ignore everything else.

However, unless your motion sends consecutive fastballs directly into your Catcher’s target, no matter how much your motion mirrors your target delivery, you’re no better than the next guy.

Change your focus

To get noticed, let the way your motion looks take a back seat to the results your motion produces.

By finding ways to systematically eliminate any and all reasons you fail to locate your fastballs, you elevate your pitching performances above the Pitchers competing for the same roster openings as you.

Your fastball location gets you noticed

If you struggle to find a way to locate your fastballs, set up a short phone call with Coach Skip.

Help him to understand how you think about your delivery and he’ll use this information to give you things you can do to get noticed.

Hit the Pitching Jackpot

 

Pro Pitching Institute is one of the top 100 baseball blogs on the Internet.Your Pitching Career is One Big Bet

Every time you take the mound, you’re betting your pitching career that you can consistently deliver your fastballs directly into a low target.

As you move up the baseball ladder, Opponents become more patient and better trained, the larger your bets become and the more you stand to lose.

Locating Your Pitches Promotes Winning

To locate your pitches, out of your front leg lift, your hand separation triggers a throwing action that sends your fastballs directly into a low target with uncanny accuracy.

Sadly, if you’re like most Pitchers, your sequence out of your front leg lift is reversed. First you stride, then you separate your hands. Your late hand separation means your body uses your throwing arm to keep itself in balance, and, because you delay your throwing arm into release, can’t where any one pitch will end up.

Hedge your bets.

You trust your Coach to manage your throwing action, but if he can’t manage your sequencing as you come out of your front leg lift, you’ll forever be dealt a losing hand!

To discover how simple it is to hit the pitching jackpot (to change your sequencing out of your front leg lift), set up free 15-minute conversation with Coach Skip to talk about next steps.

Is Your Pitching Motion Connected to Your Results?

 

Pro Pitching Institute is one of the top 100 baseball blogs on the Internet.Getting your pitches to travel directly into your target is a simple game of “connect the dots”.

If you’re like most Pitchers, you treat your movements as if they were a pile of unrelated dots.

Case in point, you treat your stride, arm slot, front leg lift, foot plant as if they were independent actions, separate dots.

To achieve your Big-League pitching dreams, you must connect your dots.

The Invisible Dot Connector

Your dot connector is invisible. This invisible dot is your body’s urge to keep itself in balance.

Your urge to stay in balance begins tying your motion, your dots, together the instant your front foot comes off the ground.

Your invisible urge to keep your body in balance uses …

– Your foot placements create a dynamically balanced front leg lift,
– Your stable front leg lift keeps your arms free to produce the cascading movements you’re used to seeing, and
–  Forces your body to use your throwing action to get itself back in balance.

A focus on this invisible dot automates your ball release and, consequently, let you expect each pitch to travel directly into your intended target.

Expect to Win

Million$ Pitch Location is Simple

 

Pro Pitching Institute is one of the top 100 baseball blogs on the Internet.Producing Million$ pitch location is a learned skill.

When you know how to end your front leg lift with your weight centered around your core, you’re able to send your throwing hand through a predetermined release window with uncanny certainty.

Words matter.

By telling yourself to place your feet in the right spots, at the top of your front leg lift, your next words center your weight between your knees and keep your glove side free to move the way you want.

Your next command spins your body down the mound and your spinning action turns your pitch location into an expectation.

What Happens When You Spin Down the Mound?

When you spin out of your front leg lift, your spin signals your body to get your front foot back on the ground.

Your front foot hitting the ground stops your lower body rotation, and your twisted posture forces your upper body to send your throwing hand through the same productive, and surprisingly accurate release point.

Simplify Your Pitching

When you use the right foot placements, the right words in the right sequence will produce the Million$ pitching results you need to succeed in a sport built around failure.

Knowing Your Unknowns Produces Instant Improvement

 

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

How do you Measure what you know?

If you knew everything you needed to know about your delivery, over 50% of your pitches WOULD end up where you want with the velocity/ball movement you expect.

Anything less than 50% and there are some unknowns you don’t fully understand or have yet to discover.

If you’re like other Pitchers, you have yet to appreciate …

– How your body reacts to your forward movement,
– How your body keeps itself in balance,
– How your shoulders and hips work together, and
– How rotational inertia affects your pitch results.

Make these unknowns a part of every delivery and your Million$ pitching results become your expectation.

Right Movements in the Right Order

With an understanding of these unknowns, these unknowns merge to produce the Million$ pitching results needed to achieve your Big-League dreams.

Once a knowledgeable Coach sees your pitching motion, he intuitively knows how to adjust your movement sequence, make these unknowns a part of every delivery and, by doing so, take you a step closer to maximizing your pitching potential.

Want to supercharge your pitching results? Set up a free 15-minute consultation to talk about next steps.

Produce Million$ Pitching Results

Pro Pitching Institute is one of the top 100 baseball blogs on the Internet.“Trying” indicates you may not know as much as you think.

When you’re “trying”, you’re “testing”.

When you’re “testing”, your cutting an already too short pitching career even shorter.

You also risk failing to realize the upper limits of your pitching potential.

Think of your body as a clearinghouse.

Your movements send messages to your body. Your body interprets these messages and decides which arm slot your throwing arm moves through.

When you “try”, you’re attempting to figure out how to send your body the right messages in the right order.

However, when you know how to move, you give your body everything it needs to produce the Million$ Pitching results you’re desperately “trying” to find.

Stop “trying”, start producing Million$ Results

If you were in one of my programs, we’d use video chat or an in-person pitching motion to show me how you move.

In less than 10-minutes, without asking you to change your throwing action, I’ll show you how to immediately and consistently show every Opponent a Million$ fastball arm speed, have your pitches produce Million$ late stage ball movement and, at the same time, expect Million$ command.

Want Million$ results? Let’s talk!

Million$ Pitching Control

 

Pro Pitching Institute is one of the top 100 baseball blogs on the Internet.Million$ Pitchers, Pitchers who get paid millions of $$$’s to repeat the same precise thoughts in the exact same order, don’t think about their results.

Rather, these Million$ Pitchers trust their focused thought patterns will challenge every Hitter to make solid contact with any pitch.

A Million$ Pitcher’s trust in their thought-based pitching process makes their pitching free of stress, worry, anxiety, and fear.

Million$ Pitchers expect their thought patterns to produce the results needed to confidently face the best Hitters in the World.

Other Pitchers “hope”.

When your thoughts aren’t specific, all you tend to think about is your pitching motion.

Your result isn’t good? You change your motion.

You never really lock in one thought process that’ll allow you to constantly and consistently compete at the highest levels.

You do, however, have periodic outings where your motion seems to work, but, sadly, because your motion isn’t built around a specific thought process, the likelihood you experience back-to-back stellar outings is minimal.

Want Million$ Pitcher Pitching Results?

We teach a specific thought process guaranteed to produce sustainable Million$ Pitcher pitching performances.

Comparisons breed frustration.

 

Pro Pitching Institute is one of the top 100 baseball blogs on the Internet.It’s human nature to compare, compete and measure your success against the accomplishments of others.

Most believe, when you copy a successful pitching motion, pitching success is yours …or is it?

Comparisons are unfair.

You know yourself better than you know anyone else.

As a result, you compare the worst of you against the best of others.

You set out trying to do the impossible … make your actions duplicate another person’s reactions.

Your competition isn’t against others.

In pitching, your only competition is you.

To be the best pitching version of yourself, you need to stop these foolish comparisons from robbing you of your energy, your focus, and your pitching career.

In the moment, you might think you’re doing the right thing, but eventually you’ll come to understand what a waste of time it is trying to copy someone else.

Your battle isn’t against others. Your war is within your own heart, your mind, and your soul.

Compete against yourself and the path to your pitching dreams becomes clear.

Compete Against Yourself

The Way You Measure Your Changes Can Hold You Back!

 

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

If you’re like most Pitchers, you measure the changes you make to your motion by tracking your results.

Trying to improve your results by measuring your results doesn’t make sense???

A Better Measurement

Let’s work backwards into a more realistic measurement.

  1. Improved results come from your lower body sending your pitch into your target.
  2. To get your lower body to pull your throwing arm into release, your lower body must rotate into the end of your stride.
  3. To end your stride with a lower body rotation, you must come out of your front leg lift opening your front shoulder to your target.
  4. To open your front shoulder out of your front leg lift, you must end your front leg lift with your weight balanced between your knees.

Therefore, when you make your weight distribution at the top of your front leg lift your sole focus, you can count on your results to quickly and permanently improve.

Need Help with Your Results?

The Pro Pitching Institute teaches the 3 simple movements guaranteed to end your front leg lift with your weight between your knees.
