Re: Re: Re: extension and bottom hand torque

>>>are you saying that "bottom hand torque" should really be called "arm torque"?

your quote: "--Example: Lead arm reaches full extension and acts as a pivot point for the back arm to push the bat around (torque).

how can the "arm" be the pivot point? aren't your hands or wrists, the pivot point for torque?<<<

Hi Ray

You raised some good points. As for your first point, it would probably be even more accurate if we termed it as “lead shoulder torque.” The lead arm is used mainly as a conduit to supply pull for the rotating lead shoulder to the lead hand.

You are also correct with your second point. It should read: “Example: Lead arm reaches full extension and the lead hand acts as a pivot point for the back arm to push the bat around (torque).

Thanks for the added clarity.
