Re: Re: Question for Jack--Observation 2

>>>I commend your honesty, as when you admitted you made a mistake when stating that the front leg is the power source for rotational hitters. While I think some of your ideas are oringinal and backed by scientific proof, however, I noted in the same post where you admitted a mistake you saying that you believe that since the back leg is not allowed to extend like the front, it sometimes seems, under light conditions, that the front leg has more drive. But Jack, driving and extending the back leg, or pushing off the back foot is a mechanic for linear propulsion. Could you please clarify this comment.<<<

> As I recall our past discussion on hip rotation, I had originally stated that in my swing the extension of lead leg felt more active in generating hip rotation than the back leg. I later stated that probably was not true. In order to rotate the body around a stationary axis, the drive from both legs would need to be about equal. -- So I guess my original feelings were in error.
> I fail to see why back leg mechanics should only be thought of as linear mechanics. As you stated in your post below -- " I noticed that as he spins his hips, both legs are bent, and as both rotate around." -- Would you say that a leg rotating around is linear mechanics?

I know I am not as knowledgable as you learned gentlmen and I am willing to admit it. So, please humor me amd explain the specifics of how your font leg is able to "drive" or "turn" or "rotate" your hips forward.

I know that the back leg is in a position to do it, I can feel it doing it. But, please, take a stance, pretend to swing and turn your hips and just report to me what your front legs do to rotate your hips. Just humor me on this one.
