>>>> The only hope that you would have that a single joint movement would contribute to your swing (in competition) is to practice/drill in such a way as to make the movement involuntary during competition.

That is what I was trying to say. Repeating it over and over again during practice (or off a heavy bag, like in the Final Arc) will eventually lead you to do it naturally during a game, which is the desired result.

I don't see how this is a bad thing.

> You said, “My ‘approach’ is repeatedly performing these actions individually and consciously, until they become muscle memory.”
> I disagree. Repetition of individual action is not the optimal way of learning to bat a ball optimally in competition.

But isn't that what you just said above? I will, as you said, "practice/drill in such a way as to make the movement involuntary during competition." This practice/drill would be repetitive, but yet, you disagree with this approach. Forgive my confusion, but it appears to me that your comments are contradictory.
