Re: Front Leg

Posted by: Major Dan (markj89@charter.net) on Mon Dec 3 05:29:19 2001

It seems like the front leg is used to generate more batspeed than the back leg. it seems like the front leg has a pulling action, while the bag leg has a little pushing action.

If there is a linear component to the lower body movement, it would be as you say - front leg pulls, back leg pushes, although I'd think the push would be the main contributor.
However, the legs add power mostly by torquing the hips. This is done best by the front leg pushing back and the back leg pushing forward- thus turning the hips in between.
