THE SCIENCE OF MOVEMENT

CONCENTRIC PHASE

The concentric phase is the contraction and shortening of the muscles required to perform the movement. Not only are the muscles shortening to produce movement, the tendons (after being stretched) are returning to their normal length.  This adds a massive amount of force behind your momentum.  Remember, the concentric phase is crucial for explosive power in most sports.

​​

RUBBER BAND: this would be the release of the stretch.

THE VERTICAL JUMP:  this would be the upward movement in the jump.

THE HITTER'S BOTTOM HALF: this would be when the batter enters their body weight shift at toe touch.

LET'S TAKE THE HITTER'S CORE: this would be the release of the batter's core on rotation.

LET'S TAKE THE HITTER'S TOP HALF: this would be the shoulder muscles, arm muscles, and upper extremity release breaking for contact.

C.U.D.I.T.® WARM UP AND INJURY

Prior to the launch of C.U.D.I.T.® Concentric Hitting, Coach Lisa made it her mission to study the science of the swing. She had contacted professionals in various fields for their expertise.  The video above was filmed during this mission.

 

ECCENTRIC PHASE

The first is the eccentric phase, or the counter-movement. This means you are elongating the muscles and tendons in response to a greater opposing force. The energy that is absorbed by the muscle can be converted into elastic spring energy and is reused by the body. This creates more efficiency because the body is able to use the energy for the next movement.

 

 

RUBBER BAND: this would be the stretch before the release.

 

THE VERTICAL JUMP:  this would be the squatting down before jumping upward.

 

 

THE HITTER'S BOTTOM HALF: this would be the loaded back side and squat compression in the back hip on the load and the front hip on the leg lift.

 

THE HITTER'S CORE: this would be the tightening of the core in separation a.k.a. split.

 

THE HITTER'S TOP HALF: this would be the tightening of the shoulder muscles, arm muscles, and upper extremity in separation a.k.a. power position ("power line").

"Running, sprinting, jumping, hopping and throwing a ball all use eccentric muscular movement to deliver power"

AMORTIZATION PHASE

The key to harnessing maximum concentric movement is the amortization phase. TIMING is crucial during this phase. The amortization phase is the phase between the eccentric and concentric phase of the stretch-shortening cycle. Unlike the rubber band, our body takes energy to keep the muscles and tendons under tension.

 

TIMING IS HITTING AND HITTING IS TIMING.

 

IN SQUAT JUMP: If we are in the bottom part of our jump too long, most of our energy will be released from our muscles, "the leaky faucet".

 

IN HITTING: If we are loaded in our eccentric phase too long in any of the load phases, we will lose force and usable energy.

*The amortization phase should be as short as possible to harness as much energy as possible.
