looking at the video again caleb might be landing to much to the 3rd base side ,causing his back leg to go underneith his landing leg. probably could land 3 or 4 inches to the left.
I see Caleb collapsing his back leg. He needs to use good weight shift leading with the front hip and then stabilizing the back leg by hand break or shortly thereafter.
You’re correct that he’s sandwiching his upper body during leg drive. This prevents him from getting a good shoulder tilt into landing because of the poor posture and leaning forward with the trunk. This also puts stress on his shoulder capsule because his shoulder can’t rotate freely when he’s sandwiched like that.
He’s not able to transfer all his forward forces at brace up because his front foot is too far ahead of his knee at landing. Heel under the knee at landing. If he fixes this, he’ll be able to get his back hip up and over the front hip during brace up.
Fix the upper body sandwiching first. Then, fix the front foot positioning at landing.
Hope that helps and good luck during football season.
yea i see the foot a little to far out now. i have spoke to him about this in the past. he said it is hard for to shorten up his stride due to his momitum. from the back veiw how do you see his leg collapsing? i see front hip opening to soon. His stride is about 2 inches over his height, this could be the problem with the back hip not going over. we have been working on the sandwiching thing for a while now. that will be a major project this winter.
Need some help here. caleb is 6 1, 210lbs 17 year old. For the members, he is dicks feb. 2012 video leason. I must say first that he has been doing 3 a days for football practice so the body might be a little tired.
from the behind veiw i see his back foot doing something funny. It comes underneith his landing leg then comes around. Is this something to worry about? I think he sandwiches to much and needs to stay taller.
On the side veiw i see his front foot opens to early which is probably causing his hip to open to early. you can also see his back foot going underneith his landing leg. Caleb has got one more camp to go to on sept 2nd and then he will be done. he shuts down until mid november then starts back with dicks conditioning video and working on mechanics. also his stride is about 2 inches over his height. could this be a problem with his back leg going underneith his landing leg?
Thanks for the help
