Using Ground Force Data in the Baseball Swing
Featuring Justin Stone | Analyzing vertical, horizontal, and torque forces, and looking at how we create speed in these three different vectors
Application of ground reaction force technology in the baseball swing is entering a new era. The days of “eyeballing” are over and objective measurements are in. We’ve teamed up with Justin Stone on a new educational course, Using Ground Force Data in the Baseball Swing.
Justin Stone is one of the most in-demand baseball instructors in the country. He teaches approximately 3,000 baseball players across the United States each year. He serves as the biomechanical hitting consultant for the Chicago Cubs and President of Elite Baseball Training in Chicago.
In this course, Justin shares with us how he uses swing analysis to coach professional baseball players. He discusses vertical, horizontal, and torque forces, and how players create speed on those different vectors.
During this course you will learn:
- how force plate data can help your coaching game
- how to analyze the swing using three dimensional ground force data
- concepts that can be applied anywhere, no matter your technology suite
By analyzing ground reaction forces, we can better understand how the hitter transfers energy from the ground and into the ball. Whether that's golf, tennis, baseball, or cricket. Swing analysis concepts provide powerful information that can help athletes maximize power and provide a platform for feedback to make changes based on objective data.
