[quote=“NY3”]I’ve been working on getting hip-shoulder separation, scap loading and getting drive off my back leg. I’m not loading on my back leg long enough and then exploding my hip to the plate.
I think my elbow gets to high when in the power position at 90’ degrees, then as I throw i think it gets higher than my shoulder. Maybe I lose some external rotation doing it?[/quote]Oh man, do we need to simplify your life!! Hip/shoulder separation, exploding hips (Ouch), elbow too high, baby finger not at the right angle but only during a full moon, etc., etc., etc. … My brain hurts!!
My advice? Stop the focusing on minutiae for a while and quiet your mind. Focus on only a couple of big picture items and see what happens to the minutiae as a result.
1. Move your front hip sideways for a longer period of time. This will have the effect of lengthening your stride in a natural way. The idea is the centre of gravity going toward the plate in a more aggressive way than the really stunted version you have now.
2. Throw later. Right now you’re in a great hurry to put that front foot down and throw.
3. Rotate your shoulders hard to throw the ball.
4. Throw from over the top of and ahead of the front foot.
