A Typical Movement Cycle
Every movement you make on and off the diamond follows this pattern.
- Balance – You always begin in a balanced position.
- Action – You make an action.
- Balance – Your subconscious gets your body back into balance.
- You begin the process all over again.
High-Level Results Begin with a Front Leg Lift
Balance – You end your front leg lift with your weight evenly distributed around your core.
- Action – You open your upper body toward your target.
- Balance – Your action forces your subconscious to use your throwing action to get your body back into balance.
Result – Your subconscious brings your throwing hand through a very sustainable and extremely productive release window.
Ordinary Results Also Begin with your Front Leg Lift
Balance – You end your front leg lift with your weight over your back foot.
- Action – Your only option is to stride toward your target.
- Balance – Your action forces your subconscious to use your throwing arm to balance your weight as you move down the mound, then, as you end your stride, uses your throwing arm to balance your weight between your feet.
Result – To complete your delivery, you’re forced to make a separate throwing action and, when your subconscious turns your throwing action into an independent movement, you never know where any one pitch will end up.
We teach Pitchers how to use their front leg lift to force their subconscious to deliver their pitches directly into their target.
