[quote=“Alex56”]The problem with my stride foot is something I have known about for a while, but cant seem to get rid of it.
But I together with a friend thought of a possible fix. I noticed a lot of pro pitcher stretch their stride leg after their balance position. Which helps leading with the butt. And i also think this should help my stride foot landing position.[/quote]
I strongly suggest just trying to get going sooner/faster first and worry about the other things after you get that down. The reason is by moving forward soonder/faster, you’ll be changing the timing of your overall delivery which will affect the timing of all of the individual parts of your delivery. Specifically, you’ll be shortening (timing-wise) your delivery which means each of the individual parts will have less time to do their thing. I would expect the front foot to clean itself up at least somewhat because it won’t have as much time to open up as far as it does. And you might not have time to stretch your stride leg which, if I’m understanding you correctly, would cause your stride foot to take a longer and more time-consuming path into foot plant.
[quote]I dont understand your point 3. So would you mind explaining that?
I guess i need to put more intent in using my lower body. I now realize me throwing with intent is actualy me just throwing as hard as i can with just my arm. [/quote]
Thank you for this observation! This is spot on.
Points I will work on for the next video: (Will probably be in 2 weeks, because i have a big test coming up)
Firming up my glove side
Leading with the hip. Stretching the stride leg after balance position.
Throw with more intent with my lower body[/quote]
I suggest working on better use of the lower half first and on the glove second. That way you can see what the effect of changing your timing has on everything else. Who knows, the glove may clean itself up too.
Consider using the Hershiser drill to practice not only leading with the front hip but also (and more importantly?) shifting your center of mass earlier than you currently do.
