Agreed. When we over emphasize the hips then we fail to optimize the physical efficiency of the spatial relationships of the hips and shoulders.
We fail to allow a batter to coordinate seamless connections that overlap and integrate to access elastic energies.
You must learn the swing as a whole body movement or at least as how the top half interacts with the bottom
I personally get good results using your upper body action. Whether you see the hands, elbows or back muscles as a coach ..the pattern is the same and sending the bat backwards at initiation seems to have a great effect on hip turn as well.
I will let you tell me why if you agree..........
