I have a secret!
Unless a Pitcher consciously controls their subconscious, they never know where their next pitch will end up?
You already know about arm balance … You’re know you lose control of your arms when you jump on a balance beam, but, like most people, never thought to relate the way you lose control of your arm movements to your pitching motion.
- Since your subconscious processes information 500,000 times faster than your conscious mind, you must satisfy your subconscious need for balance before you can make any consciously move your arms.
- Either a Coach you manipulate your subconscious to do what you want or you constantly battle your subconscious to make your body do what you want.
The worst thing a pitching Instructor (what it's you or your Coach) can do is completely deny or fully ignore that a Pitcher's subconscious controls over their actions.
… but have you ever thought about lower body balance? Only when your subconscious senses your center of balance is over the balance beam do you stop needing your arms for balance. Not needing your arms for balance means you transfer your center of balance to your lower body and free your arms to move any way you want.
Manipulating your subconscious isn't about thinking you know what to change, it's about knowing what you must manage.
