Big Questions for Jack
I do not mean to impolite or abrupt, but I have experimented with your mechanics, which, so far, is leading to the disintegration of my ability to hit for distance. As a person, I am captivated by skills which lead to personal improvement, tolerate those that lead to stasis of hitting ability, but abhor those that facilitate regression.
I am not making accusations, but merely voicing my personal experience using your mechanics.
As an individual, in 1998, I could hit a baseball ot of my hand on a baseball field 340 feet on a pop-fly to center, thus clearing the fence, and line balls over the 310 foot left field fence that would clear the fence on a trajectory simulcura to Big Mac's record-breaking 62nd home run.
I attempted to experiment with your skills by hitting a softball out my hand on a softball field.
Nevertheless, whereas two years preceding the new millenium, balls which I hit either hit or cleared the 279 foot and 312 foot fences on rising line drives, there are times when I cannot hit 200 feet, much less hit a ball 250 feet.
Again, these are not heated accusations, but acute observations in the facilitated regression of my swing using your mechanics.
Two years ago, hip rotation used to smooth, sharp, and a sorce of high acceleration; today it is jerky, and feels just like a jerky pull in the lower legs and hips. The timing has been annihilated, and my lead foot steps in the water bucket.
Another eradication is the force of the back hip. The rotation of the back hip, which used to be so prevalent in my swing, now swings in unison with the backside body segments, and I feel no rotation into the ball, just a weak--albeit rapid--swing-around.
Finally, using your circular path is causing me to hyperextend my front arm, and cause it to rip away from the other hand.
Do you have any ideas what some possible causes of jerky use of legs on hip rotation, stepping in the bucket, no back hip rotation into the ball, but merely riding along with oother backside body segments, and hyperextension?
Please answer immediately.
Thank you, and again, I don't mean to rip you apart, but I am sensitive about trying some new system, and regressing--perhaps you can fix it.
