I’ve been wondering about the position of the arm … specifically right at the time when you have it up and cocked as your foot hits the ground and before you rotate your shoulders.
It makes an ‘L’ shape…
now what’s the difference or effect with guys who don’t quite make the L, and their elbows fall short of reaching the 90 degree angle with the formarm and upper arm?
Conversely, what is the effect/impact of a guy whose forearm and upper arm form an L that goes beyond 90 degrees, placing the ball closer to the ear.
Does the second way create more velocity but come with high risk of elbow injury?
