In This Baseball Hitting Video Gain Distance The Easy Way PART 1,
We’re going over:
- How to feel lighter in the Final Turn using the rule of Un-Weighting,
- Moving the body forward to create momentum, and
- Turning Yourself into a Projectile Missile (Broad v. Triple Jump).
It’s amazing what happens when you add a little momentum. Muscles don’t have to work as hard, and the body moves effortlessly through space. We get a “head start” using our body’s weight more than we realize…to get up from the floor, the couch or chair, or to step up into the bed of a truck. Why should hitting be any different…heck, just about every good player uses momentum in some way. I hope you enjoy Baseball Hitting Video Gain Distance PART-One.

I’ve spent 11+ years in the corrective fitness industry, and have too many alphabet-soup certifications to bore you with.I also played four years of Division One baseball at Fresno State from 2000-2003.
It’s NOT how you study, but what you study that counts.I apply human movement principles (or rules), validated by science, to hitting a baseball and softball.
