[quote=“Roger”]Can’t tell for sure but it looks like you might stride to the throwing arm side. If so, I’d move you to the glove side to reduce postural isues at release. On a couple pitches in that video, you fall off to the side a bit.
Also, I think you can squeeze out a little bit more velocity and take some stress off the arm by using your lower half better. Get your hips started forward a bit sooner and build more momentum. This will also lengthen your stride and move your release point closer to home plate.[/quote]
Yeah, my coach has told me a couple times to watch my stride because I land closed sometimes.
And, trying to get my hips going earlier and REALLY using my lower body to drive to home plate have been the hardest things for me to do in trying to better my mechanics. Could a weak lower body be the cause for this?
I’m very upper body heavy. I used to be very overweight as a middle schooler, so my parents got me a bench to help me lose some weight along with running a lot. It worked, but all i really did was bench (at that time). Over the years ive incorporated every other muscle group into my workouts, but my lower body is still slow in catching up…
Thanks for the help!
