hips core or any other big strong muscles to create the power to turn her body she had minimal power and that power she created was all arm and shoulder when she lands her knees shoot forward increasing the stress on her knees and setting the knees up for injury poor loading of her hips on the right after six one hour training sessions you see her training very advanced moves for any age player in this session she’s rapidly learned to start the swing with the kick of her legs and then she correctly and sequentially turns her hips then her shoulders which brings her arms through like a whip creating increased arm speed ball velocity and now has learned a bio mechanically

  1. IMO what you did with the hips and get are perfect. however, the wind up of her arm swing is not far enough back and she's hitting under the ball/on the way down. great video though!

  2. The before video has the ball way to low to get a proper swing at it… If you want to create side-by-side comparisons, at leas make sure the equipment is setup the same way… 😐

  3. the athlete self-selected the height they feel comfortable swing at. These two videos may also be showing that not only did her body control and hitting mechanics changed (improved) but that she was more comfortable and confident to go after and hit higher balls (which to your point is higher after her training)…
