HOW EQUAL AND OPPOSITES CREATE BALANCED FORCE

TM

RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

Newton's Three Laws of Motion define how energy transfers through an athlete, ball, or bat. Newton's Third Law states equal and opposite reactions MUST occur for any kinetic chain reaction to be optimized.

According to the Law of Energy Dissipation, if an opposite reaction does not exist, energy is lost into the ground or redirected over a bigger body mass (by Protective Reflex Response). In baseball players, this ensures "braking" capacities are proportionate to energy loads - A SUBCONSCIOUS PROTECTION AGAINST BODILY HARM.

EQUAL AND OPPOSITE MOVEMENT PLANES OF BASEBALL*

INTERNAL TO EXTERNAL - The 6 degrees of movement freedom that all human joints possess alots for an internatal to external rotation. Many pitching injuries occur when internal rotation ROMs (range of motion) overmatch external rotation ROMs - or vice versa.

CONTRACTION TO EXTENSION - Absorbing energy to release it - such as front knee flex (FKF) into front leg extension (FLE). Can also be opposite, wherein energy is released and then absorbed, internal rotation (IR) to internal pronation (IP).

ROTATION AND SYNC - Rotation creates more torque, but is also utilized to decelerate or transfer power from the lower to upper halves. Syncing leverage point timing between upper and lower halves will optimize equal and opposite reactionary forces.

FORWARD TO BACK - Linear drive with a back leg thrust (or springing action) backwards. This not only spreads the lower half to create a stronger foundation, but increases explosive energy transfers - required in baseball.

With 360 joints, 700 different muscles, and over 25 muscle groups that must counterbalance each other to attain human movement, there CAN be no balance point that optimizes athletic performance. VeloPRO training harnesses work to counterbalance muscle groupings and retrain motor patterns to create a balanced force within each movement plane. The results are consistent, across every spectrum, and lasting.

*MOST MECHANICAL ISSUES ARE A DIRECT RESULT OF PRR'S SUBCONSCIOUS REACTION TO EQUAL AND OPPOSITE ENERGY DISPROPORTIONS. THIS IS EVIDENT IN ELONGATED MOVEMENT PLANES, SLOWING OF POWER, OR LOCKING OF SPEED.
