I was reading the pitching stride section of the Mechanics Articles because my hips don’t “Explode”. They sort of open slowly during my follow through. Even as a street baller, I’d like to get a little more oomph in my pitches.
As I was reading I came across this:
“once that stride foot lands, it’s the action of the ‘backside knee drive,’ thrusting forward and inward, that explosively rotates the hips, which rotates the shoulders and creates power.”
I understand the concept, but I cannot Picture it. Its really just the ‘backside knee drive’. thrusting forward and inward" part.
Can anyone either explain this or post a picture/video of it? I tried it a little and I mess up my push off the rubber alot. I just want to see it, I can copy it much easier once I’ve seen it.
