As many of you know, I’ve been on a quest to staying closed for well over three months now, and I may have a breakthrough. I tried all sorts of different strategies, but nothing really helped me stay fully closed. Then I realized something: what if my arm action was the problem?? I know most of you say arm action is genetic and shouldn’t be changed, but just watch the video and see how I stay closed with this new arm action. I haven’t had a chance to test it with a ball yet, because my arm is currently sore, but I will soon enough. I haven’t conclusively solved my problem yet, but these preliminary videos dry throwing on flat ground seem promising.
Here’s the first video, when I was just trying out the different arm action. It shows both, one right after the other.
Here’s the second video, after practicing it a little bit. Arm was sore so I didn’t do the motion more than about 40-50% intensity. Should still be an obvious difference.
is arm action something I should be changing if it helps me stay closed and prevents rushing?
