You could post this question at setpro and get a full answer from Paul.Among other things,Paul has developed over/under swing training methods/instruments that many major league players and clubs use.The Lau school has probably used one of his batspeed computers or a copy over the years.
As far as extension is concerned,the important thing is to get extension by allowing the bottom hand to stay in its arcing circular hanpath as the bat turns and follows through.What you want to avoid is extension as is prevalent in girl's/women's fastpitch where the dominant top hand pushes the hands out of the arc to get weak/premature extension.Swing thoughts about followthrough are often useful for the body to use in launching a swing with good sequencing of body parts.As Jack says,if part of this swing is cocking the wrist for later snap,the sequence is probably not going right.The bat is probably not turning/is dragging and ruining batspeed.
