Supporting Performance through MOVEMENT & SYNC ( For More Power)

Supporting Performance can vary from movement to movement. For example your core throughout your swing is crucial to maximizing offensive efficiency. Likewise, an unsupported shoulder increases injury

HOW SLOPE AFFECTS YOUR DELIVERY (Pitch Better off the Mound)

Human movement is based upon counterbalancing body parts to align towards one common CENTER of balance - not balance point. Since equal and opposite reactions must occur in any kinetic chain

Movement Training vs Mechanical Training (and When to use each one)

Mechanics are just one step within a kinetic chain reaction (KCR). They work SPECIFICALLY and contradict human motor pattern sequencing - which works rhythmically. If movement (1) flow, (2) rhythm, (3)

ALL ABOUT INTERNAL PRONATION (and how to Prevent & Heal injuries)

What is Baseball Internal Pronation?Internal Pronation (IP) is the intenal rotation of the throwing hand after pitch release. It is the culmination of the kinetic chain reaction's entire energy load being

ALL ABOUT INTERNAL ROTATION (and how to Prevent & Heal injuries)

Internal Rotation (IR) is basically pitch release range of motion (ROM). The more degrees of IR, the more velocity producing potential. IR is elasticity in its highest pitching form, but is a subconscious
