Part 3 of the program builds off the other two parts, which forms the foundation of this program’s ideas to build force from the ground up, to hips then shoulders now it’s to hands. This programs approach is base on the linking the different parts body forming a baseball swing by using internal core strength developed through the discipline of core breathing techniques, base on a qigong methods, to amplify physical force.
The attitude developed in practice in this program through mental imagery gives the hitter a high level muscle coordination feeling during the physical development of the swing. This translates to condition a selective group of muscles in the body for the precise swing. With the mental image attitude of this program, one creates core strength to be directed in shaping the swing form by engaging feet, the hips, shoulders and head to the hands and grip around the bat in the batter’s box. In the batter box a player utilizes internal strength and good baseball swing form created in this program, to bring the bat around to the ball that is going through the mental visualized window strike zone 최상위파워볼.
Practicing internal core strengthening techniques, base on a qigong method, in the batter’s box will enable the batter to create the force to bring the turning rotational speed and force of the hips into the arms and down to the hand. The grip of each hands palm and fingers to the tips forms the connective grip link to the bat that a batter uses to form his bat feel. How the hands form around the bat creates the type of grip that enables the bat to become an extension of this core force, as if one could feel the bat as part of the body, coming around to hit the ball. The grip is a key connective link in the ability to transfer rotational force of the body, to create the striking force of the bat which is bases on the grip setup.
In this program there are two grip bat force ideas to be used to increase hitting ability. The first is bat speed that is the speed coming around with the bat. This idea is based in upper body (shoulders) rotation rate bringing the bat around. Second part focuses on wrist bring the bat around forming a snapping action with the bat into the ball which creates bat striking speed force. This forms two separate actions to create hitting force ability. The idea of striking speed and force is based on wrist snapping action creating its own speed and strength at the point of impact of bat hitting ball. Bat speed brings the hands to the ball coming through the imagined “window strike zone” over the plate but it is the wrist snapping action creates striking speed and strength that forms impact force between bat and ball.
How both arms are formed between the body and hands affects the energy transfer relationship between the body rotation forces to the hand connection to the bat. The way the arms are held, either being straight or bent, affects the transfer of force down that arm and the connective force in the hands to the bat. In this program the lead arm, with the hand at the base of the bat, should be as straight as possible without the elbow being locked as the bat comes around. With that arm being straight coming around brings more rotational body force into the bat as it contacts the ball. In this system hip rotational speed and force is essential to drive that straight arm around with bat.
The top hand should have the elbow bent and touching the side near the hips of the torso to drive the upper hand action that forms striking speed force. This prepares the batter to amplify the top hand force by having the hip drive that arm around and aid in directing the bat to the ball. The closer the elbow is to the side enables the torso to transfer the hip pivoting action into increased arm force in the swing, and gives the hand action greater power. The form of one arm straight and one bent setup the batter to unleash the torso force to amply hand action in hitting the ball.
What is not considered by most batting techniques is the critical importance of hand and finger pressure and how it affects the ability to lock the lead arm at the moment of contact with the ball. If one doubts this, witness the amount of times pros launch the bat into the stands after a swing.
In this program system you’re taught how to use the grip pressures in selective fingers to create strength in the straight arm to bring the force of the bat to the ball. There is a different finger pressure in the top hand to amplify its force. Striking speed ability is a coordination of upper and lower hand action to bring the bat into the ball with hand strength at the point of impact.
Hand strength around the bat is coordinated based on Palm and Finger Pressure formed in the forearms of the straight and bent arm connected to the upper core area of the torso.
In this program one primary purpose of the lead hand on the bottom of the bat is to bring the knob of the bat to the ball. Aiming the knob of the bat at the beginning of the swing, as the ball comes through an imaginary strike zone window, is the first function of the bottom hand on the bat. To do this requires the development of the little finger as the driving force to bring the knob towards the ball. Next, the little finger functions as the driving force to keep the arm straight during the swing at impact with the ball. It seems counter intuitive to think your little finger is the key to focusing upper core strength to the hands. Yet there is a natural connection between the little finger and the upper core area. This has been recognized in eastern martial art sword and stick fighting for hundreds of years.
The role of the top hand on the bat is to transfer striking speed and force. For it’s when you break your wrist, forms striking force and speed focused in the bat as it contacts the ball. When both hands are co-ordinate, a push and pull action develops a dynamic striking force.
In this program the power begins in foot positioning creating a foundation for core breathing techniques to control the power transfer through the hips and shoulders and transfer it quickly through the proper form of the arms. The hands lead the power and speed as the ball comes through an imaginary striking window over the plate. The striking speed force created through wrist action between the upper and lower hands, makes that pivot wrist force that hits the ball powerfully.
There is executing a swings base on tempo of the bat to meet the ball coming across the plate. Timing is the other word used to judge when to swing bat base on the speed of the pitch. This program addresses timing with two words tempo and rhythm in the batter’s box to create judgment. At the highest level of development in this program a batter has a two speed swing tempo to bring the bat into a fast ball. To do this requires a swing with the least motion and the most direct pathway with the bat to the ball base on hip driving force.
