What messages does your starting position send your body?

A 1-inch difference between release points means a 7-inch difference at the plate.

Elite Pitching Location

Consecutive pitching motions, very different stride tempos and even worst pitching results.
Elite location (nearly 65% of your pitches travel directly into your Catcher’s mitt) comes from your starting position telling your body’s invisible blueprint that, as you move down the mound, it needs to go into survival mode. 

While in survival mode, your invisible blueprint automatically and instinctively uses your stride to protect you from falling on your nose and uses your throwing (re)action to bring your weight back to center. Therefore, using your starting position to force body’s invisible blueprint to place your body in survival turns your throwing (re)action into an involuntary reflex that naturally and consistently brings your throwing hand through the tiniest of release windows.
- No matter the pitch called, when your starting position puts you in survival mode, your throwing hand comes through a fastball release window with the fastball arm speed that’s certain to keep your opponent guessing.

Unmanageable and Disappointing Pitch Location

Unmanageable and disappointing location comes from a starting position where, to move down the mound, you’re forced to stride. To survive your stride, your body’s invisible blueprint automatically and instinctively calls upon your throwing arm to slow down your movement down the mound.

Disappointing location means your starting position corrupts the way you want your invisible blueprint to interpret your movements. If you can’t resolve your starting position, contact me to for free FaceTime consultation.
