Ichiro

Thought Process:

One of the best did it. Creates feel for arm working toward the head. Rotation in the upper body allows for the arm to move connected to the trunk and creates tension in the upper body. Back chaining arm working from single lever connected to the trunk to two levers connected to the trunk.

Movement Prescription:

Early trunk rotators. Lack of connection to the trunk. Inability to remove slack in the upper body. Lack of feel for rotational acceleration. Late arm.

Feels/Cues:

Same speed forward and backward. Turn the glove shoulder to the wall. Keep your shoulders moving the whole time. Keep your feet in the ground.

Common Compensations:

Slow or inconsistent tempo. Shifting in the lower body or picking up the feet.
