    Shaun,
    Why doesn't he just start at the position you paused the clip? (post #7)

    Pick a color. I'm thinking you'd pick yellow.

    BTW, I think your lines need to go from the front shoulder to back hip shortening (front shoulder comes down and in as the stride.hip move forward) and the back shoulder to front hip lengthening.

    Yes the from the rear shoulder to the front hip lengthens. The front shoulder turn down and in as the hips move forward lengthening the connection between the front hip and rear shoulder. The shoulder complex is being stretched against the stride.

    Sounds like you believe that the stretch is between the rear hip and hands ('red' line). Map out this stretch for me ... where do you feel it traveling throughout the body during the swing segment you showed?

    That would be a step in the right direction.

    This is part of the stretch being created ... along the back, from front shoulder to rear hip.

    He strides into the launch position. It's part style and part of his coiling/loading or preparation to swing, in other words timing.

    The catapult hitting system goes over this well. The front shoulder comes down and in shortening the distance between the front shoulder and rear hip. While this shortens the distance of the front (chest or front of the body) the distance across the back (back of the body) front shoulder to back hip lengthens. And the while the distance between the front hip and back shoulder lengthens in the front the distance shortens in the back. It's a X pattern that shortens and lengthens the legs of the X.
