Trevor was working on getting his core to initiate the swing. This is important to maximize the kinetic chain. Meaning the coordination and timing of the joints (muscles) fired in the correct sequence. The core muscles involved start with the internal and external obliques being activated helping trunk rotation. The multifidus muscles keep the spine stable during the swing movement. As he is approaching the ball, his spine (trunk) is flexed over the ball. This helps him stay on plane with the ball and keeps the bat in the zone longer with power. The muscles used during lateral spine flexion are the obliques, left rectus abdominis, and the erector spinae. The transverse abdominis helps compress the abdomen closer to the spine for more stabilization of the spine. This is the reason why we all hear that the core needs to be strong and have the endurance to support the spine during the swing. It will help increase bat speed, power, and a compact swing. #sciencebehindthesport #challengeinstruction #kineticchain #corestrong #coreendurance #strengthtraining #powerhitting #sequencing #timing #nohands #linearbegone #rotationisking
