Want to drive the ball further with more power? Drills such as this one focus on transferring your weight from your back to front side. When properly distributing your weight, it allows for better hip rotation to occur and builds more angular momentum and acceleration from ground reaction forces (GRFs). In hitting, most of the power comes from the hips so in this drill Jonny had Alex start in a position where he has already taken his stride. They worked on feeling the weight transfer. Hands are back and weight is 70% front side and 30% back side. Alex is on the instep of his big back toe with his heel up like he has already transferred his weight. As he is rotating, his spine stays centered and core rotates around spine. To allow the energy to transfer up the body, the front leg has to stay firm and the chest is behind the ball. This happens through a chain reaction (kinetic chain) where energy is moving up the body and arms/hands are along for the ride. For a powerful swing, you should use your hips and feel the transfer of weight against a firm front side. #challengeaz #sciencebehindthesport #biomechanics #kineticchain #powerhitter #hittheballhard #rotationisking #linearhittingbegone #nohands
