For the next few weeks I am going to be posting how to cure this affliction, that results from over doing leading with the lower body, but first…
Last week I left you guys with a question. What does every OTT swinger do? While some of the answers were correct from a root cause standpoint, none of them, but one, was a nearly universal one.
I like using the term “nearly universal” even though when I asked the question I used “every.”
The answer is the hands work away from the body and that’s why drop the right shoulder and swing to right field provide a fix…but ends up in the opposite of OTT, stuck.
Beginners and hacks inherently know how to rotate their shoulders, but are ruined because they are told to fix OTT the wrong way.
To fix OTT, you establish secondary tilt at some point and maintain it…then fix the hand path going back and in transition. Up, back and in. Not in, up and out.
I digress, fixes for 68-B coming…and don’t feel bad. The current #1 has it some and his has gotten better since he started dominating, but that’s probably a coincidence. 😀
