Re: Back foot...

> Hello,
> First off, I'd like to say that this site has helped me IMMENSELY with getting my swing back into it's natural rhythm. I recently got into softball after graduating high school 2 years ago. My main point of concern right now is the fact that when I'm swinging, my back foot is not staying planted. Rather, it's coming off the ground. I've been told that it throws off balance along with rendering myself unable to fully take advantage of the energy my lower body has to offer.I'd like to know if there is a solid solution to this problem.

How high off the ground is it coming and are you still staying behind your front foot? If your back foot is coming off of the ground due to lunging forward it could be a problem. But if it is just lifting a little and sliding forward with a bent knee while you are still slightly tilted back and behind your front foot it is probably not a problem.
