Hi Brent

I have trouble keeping the front foot closed until just before front foot strike. I have noticed that as soon I am starting to bring my lead leg down my foot immediately starts to open. For 3 bullpens now, I have been trying to keep the FF closed before FFS but I am having difficulty in initiating this component into my delivery. Do you have any tips on how to keep the FF closed until just before FFS.

Thanks Zach

The key to keeping the front side closed until just before front foot strike is initiating a linear first move with the lift leg reacting to the lead hip. You can learn more about this in this article covering the first move to 3X Pitching.
