Discussion: Early Wrist Roll Over will Ruin a Good Swing. with Steve Imlay and Bogie

DRills and teaching to separate the axe snap from wrist rollover. Just the point of contact, being too far ahead will make us rollover into the ball with mostly top spin ground balls and no exit speed. Swing makeover and sliacademy joint work

Discussion: BAT HEAD SPEED

Gary knowing you i would guess it should be higher. I would try to find someone with a pocket radar and check it. The knob I think can be subjective and perhaps not as accurate as true radar...

Discussion: Vietnam Platoon Leader Finds a Longer Stride helps him Develop More Rotational Hip Power

74 year old Dan, like most seniors, started to shorten the stride and overall lose hip rotation and explosion. Dan did a nice job of improving his exit speed from 63 average to 75 average...not perfect but vastly improved..swing makeover 278

Discussion: BAT HEAD SPEED

Bruce has a good range Id guess. Weve done a few at Woodlawn Hitting Club and within that range. Mostly likely Gary, people are testing ball exit speed off the bat. Almost everyone I know is testing exit speed vs bat head speed....What have you found for speeds?

Discussion: Hip Torque and Rotation, should be the Main Focus of your Swing. sm 274

Especially as we age, what was once a natural part of our swing, the explosive hip torque leading the upper body and hands, can become lazy and slow. We end up just swinging with the arms and upper body. I think for most, it can be relearned, but it takes a mental change of focus to again make it the main part of the swing.

Discussion: POINT of CONTACT drills helps Level OFF and UPPERCUT SWING

Helps visualize attacking where the ball WILL be vs where its coming from..Give a more level cut than the path of the pitch. Many have troubles swinging the wrong way.. up into the path of the pitch. sm #273 all shows listed free at www.sportstechnique.com

Discussion: Technique Can Increase Line Drive Speed & Homerun Distance at Any AGE!

77yr old Ed Rose, a veteran of 57 years of top level softball, is typical of seniors as we age. With Ed,and Steve Imlay, we took a look at his recent swings. While still a top hitter in the 75s, Ed is leaving 5-10 mph of Exit speed and 20-30 feet of distance on line drives and long balls, due to a slowing of hip and body rotation and a lack of a great whipping bat head snap. Something that is common in all us seniors as we age, BUT something we can improve with better rotation and letting bat head whip thru the ball more completely. Age and injury slow us but a stronger focus and effort on the swing can bring impressive results.

Discussion: An Explosive Whipping Wrist Snap, Gives 160 lber 50 years old, Homerun Power..E229

Shows importance of speed and whiplike snap of wrists, bringing a more level cutting swing and bat head contact into the ball. Small 50 year old, 150lb, hit 3 of 4 out in a row, with 4th being off the fence. Homeruns are not the main emphasis but rather learning that this also increased line drive exit speed for gap extra base hits.

Discussion: Golfing Inside Out Swing, Fixed by Driving and Snapping Wrists from start of Rotation. #222

From lag to snap is 1/30th of a second, so it makes sense to rotate, extend, and snap in one instant, one motion. Sequence has to be in order, but basically its one swing thought.

Discussion: Playing without an ACL ligament

I blew out the ACL in both knees before I was 50 and really never had a problem. The other muscles compensated. Never wore a brace...That said i was 280 but at one time ran decent for a bigger man. My doctor who did my scopes (now at 68 i finally had one knee replaced..said it was not uncommon to do a scope and see a partial or complete ACL tear. Guys didnt even know when they did it...nor did I...Give it time and work hard to strengthen muscles around it and dont be radical on cutting and going from 0 to 50 in one second..good advice for anyone over 50..good luck
