Seems there’s been quite the misconception surrounding Heel Disconnection since I first posted about it a couple months ago. Hopefully these videos below will clear a lot of this stuff up and give you a pretty good idea of how to maximize your lower half in the delivery. We’re going to be taking a look at a few different pitchers and how they disconnect from the heel at the time of hip internal rotation. There’s going to be a ton of good context below. But first, if you’re someone interested in developing efficient throwing velocity I’d encourage you to explore my newest ebook option Velocity Development that includes how to best go about optimizing your pitching mechanics to achieve your pitching goals.
If you want personalized 1 on 1 feedback of your pitching mechanics like you will see in the video below I’d encourage you to explore the option of signing up for a Mechanical Analysis.
