If you bat head drags,and body wore out, this top arm extension really helps the snap with less hip drive you had when young.

Discussion: A Question For Bogie

Some of the younger pros do this, due to such a forceful swing and rotation, and this shows up that way on the follow thru, but I dont see many seniors doing it...just not the explosion that the kids have and . Another thing is he is going for a power homerun swing here...so that is another reason why. I just played with Bret this weekend and I did not notice it much here ..he hit alot of homeruns, but perhaps was conscious of getting out of the box and didnt let the follow thru finish as much. Yes, though, that would be slower out of the box for sure.

Never too late to start playing again, these 67 and 62 year old brothers, started at a really poor level of swinging up and dragging the bat.

GoPro's are cheap and can do wide angle. You dont need a new model, I use a gopro 5 and it does the job nicely.

Discussion: Keeping Weight on Rear Foot during Stride, Key to Hip Power

One of the most misunderstood steps of the swing and under used technique..I found myself just stepping and landing on front foot rather than keeping weight on the back foot long enough to drive the hips into the rotation. Huge difference between doing it right and doing it halfway. It also helps set a better launch angle and allows hands to come back more naturally. All great top level hitters do this.

Discussion: Chair Drill allows Tee Hitting during knee/hip replacement rehab SM101

80yr Pops hitting 3 weeks after knee replacement. consult your doctor of course, but hitters can work on core and upper body torque, extension and wrist snap developing skills off the tee if the lower body is in rehab from injury or joint replacement.
