1- I think your arm action is fine at this point. And the minor things that are a little off are going to correct themselves when you fix your lower half mechanics. Don’t worry about this.
2- Separation is a function of what is going on in your stride phase. If you move earlier, acclerate through your stride better, and stay closed longer- you get separation at front foot touchdown.
IMO, If you focus on staying closed a little longer you will fix most of your issues. You don’t want to try to work on 3-4 things at a time. You may mess up the things that you already fixed. Good luck!
Also, try to do more work and filming off a mound if possible. You may find that your mechanics are better or worse off a mound, so some of the stuff we are talking about may not apply. Analyzing mechanics from flat ground can be a little dicey at times. Do they have indfoor mounds for you to use?[/quote]
I have been told they do, I will try to use one today if I can.
I was talking about like a progression of drills the emphasized different things. for example: knee drills, down and out-stop drill, then pitching.
kind of like warming up and then going full go.
I’ll go with what you said, and focus mainly on my leg drive, but I believe that I should continue to do some drills to continue to build muscle memory for my arm action. And at the very least, use those drills to warm up my arm and body.
I’ll look for a mound tonight when I throw. I believe all I have to do is ask the people that work there to unlock the door.
