I spoke of this before. I think the resistance shows up in different ways for different guys. My kid doesn’t really have a peel either. More like Bonds or Rendon. Not saying she’s themBonds just seems to sink into the ground to me... and then we a similar movement. IDK, could be wrong. Can somebody explain Bonds back leg vs what's being demoed? Why doesn't it look like Bonds back foot is dragged through?
FTR, I am a firm believer in what's being demoed..
It's posts like these that I can agree with you on seven days a week, and will just have to leave it at that. As soon as we start into what actually does or leads what...is where the train comes off the tracks. So that said...Obliques contracting against the hips extending.
I would say that that IS hip extension. The umph is hip extension. The femurs(not necessarily the whole leg!) and pelvis are being made into a line really fast. The really noteworthy thing is that the torso is attached to the pelvis as its being snapped around by the glutes/hamstrings. So it acts like a lever. It gets swung/catapulted as the hips move into extension. Because of this I think it may be better not to view hip extension as "legs". It's a little bit different than that imo.So now that I hope we're at the same understanding of what (at least I believe) we were both thinking separately but together, I'd like your opinion on what you'd call the hip "thrust", I call it that added "umph" that we see on so many hitters. You mentioned Barry last night, and here's a clip that I hope you can see it....
...in the one on the right. Where he gets out there with his leg extension(s), but then after he pauses to wait on the OS, you can see him "umph" or "thrust" his hip forward w/o gaining ground with his body. IWO's he didn't add additional leg extension, but he did push/thrust his hip forward somehow...how would you technically describe that final thrust/"umph" movement?
Jr. is another example...
....gets out to the end of his leg extension(s), pauses, and then a "thrust" or "umph" to extend the rear hip up and ever so slightly forward, but w/o adding additional leg extension or forward body movement. How do you describe that movement of the hip, when the leg does not extend any further while it's happening?
I've been writing initials for it, but now I'm starting to believe they have a different meaning for same than they have for me. Curious as to your thoughts on that move(ment).
How can a hitter leverage the legs by sitting in a chair? Nobody in this thread is saying the legs don't play a role. So your challenge makes no senseNo takers on the seated swing challenge?
Someone please show me the obliques driving the swing.
