[quote=“101mph”][quote=“kevinbert28”]This is simply breaking the hands too early. This causes the arm to get up too early and you may hyperabduct, which may lead to arm soreness(in my case).
To correct it, break your hands later.[/quote]
The hyper-abduct is nonsense to this matter.
Correcting it may or may not be as simple as breaking the hands later.
Arm slop (or as I like to call it “slack in the whip” or slack in the rope") is a timing issue between body parts as they transfer rotational (hopefully) momentum/energy from one body part to the next in the kinetic chain (or sequence) that eventually leads to the end of the whip - the throwing arm.
If this timing is not perfectly executed in exquisite fashion, you have “slack” or “slop” where this energy “leaks out” before it gets a chance to get transferred efficiently into the throwing arm.
It is debatable when the “slack” is finally taken up that it would cause injury.
I guess at the worst this inefficiency could cause unneeded stress (that could eventually lead to an injury) and at the very least it causes those very precious MPH’s that we work so hard for to be lost.
BTW Priceless - I don’t seem to remember saying you had “slop” in your arm action. I said your arm/elbow was getting trapped behind your body.[/quote]
I have scraped my scap loading focus arm action for my old action. I can feel that when I throw my arm is waiting, I tried to fix this for a later arm action and I felt more velocity and had less soreness. I am currently using backward chaining to hopeful fix this.
