I put them in the order that I took them. The reason I took the last one was that I was doing this drill while throwing a softball with my girlfriend and after I wanted to see some throws with a baseball.
I didn’t post the first video I took because it was terrible from a ER standpoint. This one was much better than the first one. I obviously need to drive out further. I was focusing on my arm action, so my legs suffered. I notice that the more I try to drive with my legs, the more tense my arm gets, and the less ER I get. So with that being said, I need to work on keeping my arm loose while working on driving my back leg more. I can stride far when I focus completely on driving my leg, but I have yet to connect my arm action/leg action.
I also notice that my shoulder turn is slower when I focus on my leg action.
In my second video, I noticed that I brought the ball forward a little as my shoulders begin to turn. I will continue to work on my ER with that drill by forcing it to stay back and external rotate with the energy from my shoulder turn.
So in summary I think my focus should be:
-drive hard off the back leg
-keep shoulders/hips closed until forced open
-keep arm loose
-fast shoulder turn while maintaining a loose arm
I think that long toss will be beneficial to helping me connect my lower and upper body. I will post some new video in a week or so. [/b]
