is there any correlation between sandwiching the body and swinging the leg out and around?
does one movement counterbalance the fault of the other movement? I noticed I sandwich my torso a bit and my arm whips back behind the line of my trunk as well. in addition i have been experiencing lower back pain..
i have made some changes in back leg action since this last video, but for what it’s worth:
I do not see a correlation between sandwiching the trunk or bending at the waist as causing leg swinging. However, leaning back could since the leg shooting out would be a counter-balance.
Based on your previous video you need to focus on getting your elbow to shoulder height. That is really killing your velocity because you end up losing the pre-stretch at the shoulder as well as MER (maximum external rotation.
Then you need to focus on bracing as your lead knee continues to drift forward almost right up to ball release. That’s like pitching in sand.
As you swing your arm up start to flex your elbow about 3/4 of the way up and then keep lifting your forearm until you get to shoulder height.
Get in front of a mirror and watch yourself.
You will need a lot of practice to break that habit. Tons of reps. Probably more than you think. But until you actually change it and your bracing you will not see significant increases in velocity.
do you think the reason my elbow is not getting to shoulder height and a good cocked position is because i am hooking my arm behind the line of my trunk? would concentrating on taking the ball in an aligned arch fix what could be a timing issue, allowing my elbow to flex and reach shoulder height?
