Thread: Lower Back

    Default Lower Back

    It has become increasingly clear to me that elite hitters use their lower back in a way that has people seeing hip coiling and hip rotation as the key driver in a swing.

    Meaning that you can mimic positions using the hips, but in reality the elite players are using their lower back to initiate movement.

    If you are willing to swing the bat with an open mind and can self analyze without prejudice you will inevitably find that once you learn how to twist the lower back - your hips and rear leg have absolutely no choice but to provide resistance. It is the IR of the rear leg and rear hip joint that provides this resistance against the lower back pull back....

    I will be providing clips to support my position on this - but I encourage anyone who is experimenting with the SnF, rear leg swings, etc to try initiating movement with the lower back...

    Most would see this as hip action....but IMO the lower back is what creates this movement...

    Once you figure out the lower back - all of the things that we have talked about fall into place....
