Do you have poor hip-to-shoulder separation? Do you pull your glove side down and across your body hard? Do you drag your arm around into pitch release? Do you have shoulder and elbow pain that gets worse the longer you pitch? Good chance you have a major mechanical flaw that reduces pitching velocity and leads to a serious arm injury called Early Trunk Rotation. Most low-velocity pitchers are early trunk rotators. Preventing early trunk rotation will not only help increase pitching velocity but will reduce the risk of pitching-related injury. The problem is preventing early trunk rotation is a lot easier said than done. If a pitcher is going to make this correction it is not going to come in a simple drill or an angle change in the pitching delivery, it is going to come from a complete understanding of how a high-velocity pitcher efficiently develops power in the lower half and then transfers it up the body. In the video above and the article below, you will learn what is the exact definition of early trunk rotation. You will learn the steps to prevent early trunk rotation and finally drills from the 3X Pitching Velocity Program that will help you eliminate it from your pitching delivery.
