Differentiating Intent Cues

By Kyle Harris

Full disclosure, these morning musings were inspired by Patrick Jones (follow him @pjonesbaseball, find his podcast Patrick Jones Baseball and listen because his content is top notch). He posted a Tweet about differentiating intent to hitter needs. His exact quote was “Can’t preach Daddy Hacks to everyone. All hitters are different, which makes it fun and challenging to coach. Some hitters need to feel like they’re not swinging as hard as they can.  Some do. Gotta figure out what’s best for you.”

Improving Sprint Times for Athletes

For many years, there has been a huge buzz over the terms “speed, agility, and quickness,” and athlete training was centered on this. Coaches embraced the idea that “more is better,” and athletes were prescribed high volume sprints and jumping drills.
