At “heel strike,” the rest of the swing is always the same; it’s just a question of when you want to release the swing.
- At heel strike, the rest of the swing is always the same. The timing may be different, the mechanics of the swing are always the same.
- Once you have torque, it’s just a question of when the hitter is going to release their swing.
- Torque allows your body to stop your swing rather than your hands or arms. Torque allows you to use your larger muscles in your torso, your abs, your hips and gluts to stop your swing.
- If your hands get out in front of you and your front arm is bent at the elbow, you’ll be left with only the ability to push the barrel at the ball. That will create a poor low bat speed swing.
- By keeping that front arm straight, it acts as a lever creating leverage that allows the hitter the ability to release their swing with speed and whip.
