High elbow

Posted by: Joe A () on Thu Dec 13 17:51:23 2001

I think that reason for keeping the back elbow up is that it creates maximum "cock" in the wrists.
> Try this. Take a stance with your back elbow pointing to the ground. Move your wrist back and forth and you will find that there is "play" in your wrists. In other words, the wrists can be cocked back further than they are.
> Now rise your back elbow parallel to the ground. Notice that your wrist can not be cocked any more. From this position, when drop your elbow to you start your swing, your wrists are in "maximum cock postion."
