  1. I love the information. As a high school coach, I am looking for drills that my pitchers can use to develop the feel of hip and shoulder timing and rotation.

    1. Bill – thanks for the question. We like to use Roll-Ins and Drop-steps to help athletes feel proper sequencing in achieving a good amount of hip shoulder separation, and achieving that into or slightly after foot-plant. With the preset open pelvis into foot-plant, the roll-in allows athletes to feel the counter rotation of their torso to land in a separated position by exaggerating this feeling. The drop-step allows athletes to feel the their hips rotating before the shoulders in a dynamic action for more efficient sequencing of hip-shoulder separation.
