    Great piece of advice. Also, checking to make sure you have some rhythm in your stance will allow for a proper weight shift and timing. Good luck.

    Good advice in this thread.

    Bagwell was one of a kind.

    Yes what you want to do is put your front foot were it would be if you did stride.

    Jeff Bagwell actually stepped backwards when he would swing. I'm a big proponent of doing what feels most comfortable for you as a hitter. (As long as you are not doing anything drastically wrong as far as the basic mechanics of a good swing)

    The purpose really of a stride is to get the weight shifting so as long as you can rotate and shift your weight there really shouldn't be a problem. This is were strength training and emphasis on explosion can really help because you will do it from a standstill position.

    You should place your front foot where you would stride to.

    started a topic No stride?

    No stride?

    What do you guys think of a no-stride? I'm having trouble with getting my front foot down and relaxed before the swing. Would this help? Does this reduce power?
