I try to get them to have that feel when the pitcher seperates his hands to reach back and throw and then start forward. I found that by using this comparison they can get the feel of loading against the back leg and getting the hands to the lauch position at the same time a pitcher would and also they can feel when the barrel should be getting torqued rearward. I have found it easier for them to have more of a fluent motion versus a load, toe plant and then "go"

Graylon,

You state...""I have found it easier for them to have more of a fluent motion versus a load, toe plant and then "go""

This is one of the best ways to use the comparison to achieve a proper build up and fluent release of energy.

I agree 100%...nice!
