Basic athletic coordination issue: My upper body and lower body don't coordinate. It was a big problem for me in baseball growing up. The timing of when I stepped into a pitch and opened my hips was always waaayyy in front of my hands, so all the power from my lower body was wasted and I just hit little cans of corn with my arms. I was way too big and slow to be hitting singles, ended up catching because it was the only place a big slow singles hitter could play, but washed out of catching due to a weak arm that had more to do again with not being able to get my lower body into the throw and relying all on my arm. I spent more hours than any of you can imagine trying to fix that as a kid because I desperately wanted to play baseball more than anything. I never did and had to play football because it takes very little coordination to ram into somebody in front of you.JR wrote:I'd like to see a video of you throwing to see if we could find some way for you to throw farther.
From my experience working with people on my disc golf throw, it again is an issue of being all arm/no ass. I'm not very optimistic that I'm ever going to get that particular bit of coordination worked out.
