    I am keeping to a synchronization of both engines. And one might be more handsy and one might be more torso minded. I would thing the bigger girl being torso and smaller be more handsy, but that might be polar opposite. Thus, every hitter is different.

    If we are sticking with the torso engine/ hand engine theme(which I prefer).

    1.The ground is leveraged which loads the torso on the backside(coil).
    2. At the same time there is a stretching of the core/back from this leveraging which primes the front side and in turn lets it ‘lead’ or leverage swing launch(pivot, twitch, shift etc.)
    3. After the torso engine loads, the hand engine is priming(tipping, pumping, torquing,floating etc.) and is syncing up with the torso engine.
    4. The torso then ‘shifts’ which activates/accelerates the hands engine into its swing arc.(posture has been set already).
    5. The hand engine then loads the barrel and whips into the ball.

    IMO the ‘shift’ powers the swing and launches the swing. The better you prime and sync your torso and hand engines to your shift... the faster/more efficient your swing is.

    * If any engine is overbaked or is off balance or out of sync the sequence will suffer in 2 different or both phases, timing and or adjustability.

    If you're rear leg is pressuring to turn forward and everything above that is resisting that action, you are coiled. What breaks the stalemate? It ain't the rear hip. And it ain't the torso.

    You need to determine what is launch, And is what is the loading. Gif 2 is not the launch, a lot of loading is still left to be done.

    Gif 2 represents where he is at before front foot hits the ground.

    I guess I’m not sure what GIF 2 is highlighting? Looks like a couple frames before it touches. And is the touch significant or is the weighting of the foot? Or neither?

    Some hitters launch position happens before toe touch. Bagwell is one of those hitters.

    All I can say is this thread has gone in a lot of directions from its original purpose I love seeing all the back and forth dialogue of differing views.

    What is it? I think torso pull/twitch. It all happens so fast. I think some may have different triggers/cues. Maybe even slightly different sequencing. But it all has to come together.
