Because there is too much "virtue signaling" here. Semantics! Athletic people do athletic things when pressed by abnormal things, situations. Beyond the basics or fundamentals for me is just semantics. You have less than .2 seconds left when that front toe touches down. Any adjustments are not going to be a thought process on your axis, so athletic players will adjust to what they see, and quickly.sure lateral tilt is present. But we were speaking of beforehand into foot plant. How one adjusts to get on plane to the pitch initially. Some think it’s with the hands/arms and others think it’s with forward bend. We all agree lateral tilt is a great adjuster after foot down.
when speaking of how the ‘best’ get it done, we should probably use the ‘best’ right? Wouldn’t feel right using my DD to explain how the best adjust right?
As far as adjusting I do believe the arms and legs and hands do most of it, along with lateral tilt along with some hip flexion and some hip slide at times.
why do I need a list of fundamentals when talking about 1 specific subject?
I do like the body adjusting automatically. Each player adjusts differently, I think I said as much earlier.
edit: my dd uses a ‘longer’ arm when adjusting quite often. Would personally like if she didn’t but it’s not my style it’s hers. I just try to get her to a position so she can adjust. From there it’s instincts mostly. I have given her side bend drills and hip flexion drills and let her gravitate to what she does best. I always say ‘try this.. if you like it, use it, if not discard’.
