The Power-Push fastpitch pitching aid is designed like a sprinters block. The concept is a straight line. If you have every watched a sprinter or a powerful fastpitch pitcher they are in what is called a “power line”. This will allow the pitcher to gain as much power from their lower body as possible.
This Power-Push has a slot in which the pitcher's push foot fits into. This pitching aid will give immediate feedback to the pitcher. If they are opening their hips up too soon then they will drag their heel through which will turn the Power-Push. If they are leaping or crow hopping there will be a gap between the Power-Push and their drag line.
This tool can be used with new pitchers to advanced pitchers. In my opinion a pitcher that is just now learning to pitch they should start from the bottom and move to the top. They need to have a solid base before they need to worry about the right motion. The new, learning pitchers will be able to see what they are doing and form good habits to begin with in their lower body. The older ones can use it to fix bad habits. The goal is to get your pitchers to use their lower body, push of the rubber, get on their power line and in the power “K”.
