Discussion: Start Fixing your Swing Flaws in one BP session sm190

Rotation, Handpath Down to the Point of Contact and top arm extension are simple fixes, but for most with an uppercut swing, its a radical change. If you give this a serious try, most hitters will be able to flatten out the swing and improve contact and consistency. sm 190

Discussion: Hips & Rotation Must LEAD Hands in a Powerful Swing sm182

Too much hand and snap focus ruins a swing sometime when the hands get out ahead of the hips. Not a long video but shows examples of swings with hips and body rotation leading the hands..too fast to analyze when doing it but we can make sure we get the sequence of events right and that takes care of chasing outside the rotation sm182

Discussion: Dont blame SSUSA for the ball problem.

I appreciate SSUSA's committment to getting the tournament schedule back on track after a horrid Covid year. They always do a great job. I think the ball affects the power of 65 and older teams the most, with the younger athletes still powering homeruns. Still a great game and with patience... lumber, softballs and toilet paper will soon be in good supply.

Discussion: Using Rotation to Pull Lead Arm Axe Snap transforms 64 yr. Old Roys Swing SM173

Wanting to get on a SSUSA tournament team, Roy could run and field but not hit at the proper level. He developed a focus of good hip and shoulder rotation, pulling the lead arm within the rotation to the point of contact with good follow thru for improved consistency and much higher ball exit speed.

Discussion: Total Knee Replacement.."A Softball Athlete's 3 month Video Diary" Sm 165

Mike, your statement that you were never fast, but neither is a glacier, is an anthem that all slow guys will repeat forever. haha I do remember you posting on your progress when you had your knee done and it really helped me to understand its not as daunting a task as some make it seem. I think if your an athlete and used to dealing with pain and injury, its going to be alot easier than if your on a computer all day for your only physical activity.

Great pro instruction & tools you can make to help develop an a to b, powerful swing. Eliminate a golfing loop and the mishits it produces. Pros do a really good job of explaining how they use rotation, upper body, arm extension and lag and snap to create power.
