Jose Altuve chats with Eric Byrnes about his hitting style
Hit like the Best with Proper Load and Strong foundations to initiate Energy Transfer
*When working with hitters we first spend time working on their foundation before we get to the actual swing.
*Hitters can focus so much on the swing they forget swinging involves a transfer of energy using the entire body.
*Hitters with a strong foundation allow maximum energy transfer and freedom for hand to work efficiently.
*When the timing of the foundation is too late or unbalanced hitters have to work harder for contact and additional power.
*MLB hitters big and small utilize a variety of loads getting to their strong foundations to initiate energy transfer.
*Hitters can be consistently effective and efficient working from the 50/50 foundation that is established before and after load shift.
