Muscle Memory is a waste of time.

Every movement you see your body make out of your front leg lift is created by your mind's "built-in response mechanism".

When you're response produces an unacceptable result, you spend hours in the bullpen battling the way your mind's "built-in response mechanism" functions.

Muscle memory is you trying to figure out what you need to "feel" to make your next pitch more competitive.
  • All the while you've done nothing to change the way your mind's "built-in response mechanism" impacts your motion.
  • In any one bullpen session, through lots of reps, you'll figure out for that day what you need to feel to produc fastball command for that day.
  • Sadly, the next time you take the mound, you discover your mind's "built-in response mechanism" is still impacting your movement and the good "feel" you had in the bullpen is gone???
When you synchronize your mind's "built-in response mechanism" with your actions...
  1. You can stop wasting your time with muscle memory and
  2. You can thinking about the actions you know will produce acceptable outcomes all the time!!!
To your mind's "built-in response mechanism" to produce acceptable results all the time, contact me.
