I wish I could have shown you his stuff earlier!Creating posture is important.. maintaining posture throughout the swing is even more important. I agree a hitter must get to a FYB position before initiating launch, posture keeps the hitter behind and through the ball. Nobody explains it better than this guy IMO;
Like this one as well.. really helps explain about those hitters who start to work the back shoulder under the front prior to toe touch/heel plant
Posture in the baseball swing is more than just "Athletic Stance/Posture" you hear in other sports. It allows the batter to get behind and stay through the ball. If you lose posture in a swing you end up pushing the barrel through the zone. See @49 secs of first video I posted, this is the issue a lot of young hitters have, they come out of their swing and end up pushing the barrel. You hear coaches say to hitters regarding stance, "OK get in a good athletic position/posture...", this is not the same as posture that is created/maintained in the swing which allow the shoulders and barrel to turn around the spine.
This guy talks a ton about posture.. wish I discovered him a little earlier when my DD was playing. I enjoy his content, but more importantly she did as well. Easy to understand.
this is the problem w most coaching cues imo. Some is good? Well more must be best!?More is better?
