The most popular but least effective drill on the field

This is a popular drill and personally, I think the traditional set up could be improved. You see the power position being used at a lot and personally, I think it promotes negative movement patterns and timing.

Here’s the link to the article:

That drill looks similar to something my HS coach had catchers doing in a pop up drill. He emphasized getting to the cocked position early. Not sure that was the best way to go, but we did it. Live and learn.

I was just trying out your modified power position, and I can feel the torque and the separation very easily with the hips ahead of the hands and the back knee internally rotated. When I initiate the turn with my back hip, I can feel the power increase it generates. I like it. Thanks.
