(Read carefully, as my writing goes in circles sometimes. Actually, you can get all you need to know from the last sentence, so you can skip the mumbo jumbo. 🙂 )
If you try and solve problem “A” by doing the opposite of problem “A,” you will end up with problem “B.”
What you want to do, is just do it correctly…but if you are doing it correctly, it might feel like the opposite of “A.”
OK, now that I have you all good and confused, I will give you some examples and you will understand completely.
If you are aimed too far right and you know this and want to change it, you should try and aim square to fix it. You should not try and aim too far left or you will eventually be aiming too far left.
Guess what? If you change where you are aiming to square, you should feel like you are aiming differently.
Still confused?…me too.
This is the same concept when I was talking about lag. The opposite of a cast is not holding the lag/delaying the release…it is a proper release. You don’t cure a cast by using your hands to hold the lag, because you are just introducing a different problem. If you make a better swing you won’t cast.
If your hips are over rotating, you don’t restrict your hip turn. You figure out why your hips are over rotating and fix that. That is usually a shoulder turn problem. Once you start rotating your shoulder properly, your hips will stop over rotating without restricting them.
The whole point of this is just understand one thing. You don’t want to fix a problem by replacing it with a different problem…then you have two problems and all you can do is pray they cancel each other…and that almost never happens.
