Re: Re: Role of the hips

>>> 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.......... <<<

Hi Donny

Yes, I agree. The reason you get good hip response while sending the bat backwards is because it requires good shoulder rotation to initiate it. Therefore, your hips are working to produce the trajectories you envisioned.
