Lou Gehrig Lesson Learned:  Does This WORRY You About Your Hitting...

Lou Gehrig Swing Analysis

What if I were to tell you Lou Gehrig followed two VITAL principals to explosive rotational power, and how you can too, easily.  These principals are TOTALLY Movement Science based, so you don't have to 'hope' anymore.  The movement laws that govern ALL rotational athletes are the same (sure, they may look slightly different), but are definitely tried and true.

Does it really frustrate you (deep down) to blindly follow hitting drills - or what I like to call 'methods' - on YouTube?  You HOPE these promised power drills will work, but you're never entirely sure.  Even if a big-name player or coach is promoting them...

In the video analysis below, we'll be looking at:

  • Whether 'Biscuit Pants' (lol) does a good job of "un-weighting" the bat,
  • If he employs human movement Science and the Catapult Loading System (similar to a jumping kangaroo), and
  • Compare his explosive rotational power movement to a WR holding Olympic Hammer Thrower.

You see, the Iron Horse was 6'0", 200lbs, according to BaseballReference.com, and swung a 35.6 inch woody that weighed 41.5 ounces (that's over 2.5lbs!).  

By today's physique standards, Gehrig would compare more to Robinson Cano, Ryan Braun, Jose Bautista, and Andrew McCutchen. 

You see, it's not all about bat speed.  In Physics, Force = Mass (m) X Acceleration (a).  Bat speed only explains the "a" variable.  When we swing a light bat fast, Force is reduced.  When we swing a heavier bat slower, Force is increased.

Here's the frustration with swinging a heavier bat in today's game though...

Most young hitters are UNABLE to swing a heavier bat because they're so 'hand' oriented with their swings.  It's like they're swinging a wet newspaper.

What you're going to learn are the true PRINCIPALS to explosive rotational power, and how ALL rotational athletes have to abide by them...if they want to be successful.

Here's a quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson:

"As to the methods there may be a million and then some, but principals are few.  The man who grasps principals can successfully select his own methods. The man who tries methods, ignoring principals, is sure to have trouble."

Think of methods (drills) as almost everything you find on YouTube about hitting.  Principals are universal laws that govern ALL human movement.
