    What you probably feel is the knob turning back on itself as your lead hand turns left........And it feels like pulling back......
    Oh, man, you nailed it, John! Yeah, that's it, that's exactly what LA felt.

    So BM, you do agree that the high level swing starts as a third class lever and changers to a first class lever?

    It seems most armature swings are third class levers through the entire swing.

    its a different perspective and i watched and tried it with an open mind, but I just didn't buy into it. Kudos to him for thinking outside the box (so to speak).

    I'm not. I'm comfortable with the way I hit. I need to make a post and vid for evaluation.

    It just seems to me like he method leads to only one kind of swing, not able to be adjusted to pitch type and location.

    LA, it's pretty tough to create rearward force "pulling back" as the hands move through the swing.

    Rather then thinking of creating a "pull back" with the lead hand, just think of the lead hand turning left into contact as the top hand drives past it.....

    This creates the torque late in the swing.......

    Pulling back is "virtually" impossible........

    Are you applying pressure with your fingers? That's very important.

    Torque hitting? Like this guy?

    (CAUTION: ONLY VIEW THIS VIDEO IF YOU HAVE AN OPEN MIND ABOUT HOW TO HIT A BASEBALL). Players who have actually tried this technique enjoy more consistency...


    About the only thing I can hit doing this is a ball off of a tee.
