    I find the corkscrew hip concept pretty interesting. There are a lot of false teachings out there of pitchers trying to teach increasing stride length by simply telling a pitcher to stride further or “get extension”. I believe the length of the stride is a product of the duration of the ride. We work on drills that force players to get into a glute activated position with hip internal rotation on their plant leg quite often. This looks like a drill that is doing what I call “feed the mistake”. The resistance of the band appears to be pulling the pitcher into a “corkscrew” position out of that glute activated position and creates a feel for the pitcher to drive his plant leg opposite the resistance applied by the band or he would lose his balance. Interesting concept of application of resistance to force muscle activation in the opposite direction in my opinion. Thanks for sharing.
