- Introduction:You bust your butt, but no matter what you try, you just can’t figure out how engage your lower half to get more velocity? And the frustrating part happens when you can get it done in practice but the velocity suddenly vanishes come game time?If this sounds like you, you’re in the right place.Before we dig into this massive post and I share with you the inner-secrets of “The System” used and trusted daily by over1. 170 NCAA D1 programs,
2. 2/3 past College World Series Champions…
3. Plus another 20 MLB organizations.My purpose for writing you this post is because as a former NCAA D1 pitching coach, I want you to leave here informed, with a deeper level of understanding about why you’d never want to waist valuable training time, you can’t get back.Let’s start with a brief :48 second video intro of the now-famous Core Velocity Belt Training System.Since I introduced The Core Velocity Belt Training System to the baseball world almost 3 years ago, there’s been 100’s of so-called belts crawling out of the woodwork. But honestly, they’re not The Belt. Most are “waist support bands” attaching at the hips and sliding upwards.
Sure, they are labeled as hip rotation devices but there’s only one Core Velocity Belt. (I’ll explain all the difference when I begin revealing the behind the scenes secrets and the pitfalls I experienced in the 12 long years of research and development.)
There’s a reason why over 170 NCAA D1 programs, 2 former College World Series Champs and 21 MLB teams trust using it.
These teams and programs are responsible for billions of dollars of athletes, so obviously they know it works, but more importantly they’ve been educated to understand why it works.
And that’s my goal for you.
But I get it… The Core Velocity Belt is expensive.
Coming from a single family, I understand that it’s not always feasible to shell out over $300 for a Core Velocity Belt. Especially with the associated costs of lessons and hotel stays.
But, there’s a reason its expensive.
It’s not just The Belt you’re paying for, it’s the security of knowing with 100% certainty…
- The information you will be provided is backed by science…
- Trusted by over 1 Billion dollars worth of professional athletes who have the means to buy any product they want, yet they choose The Core Velocity Belt.
But, more than importantly, you’re investing in the well-being of your son or daughters future. That I can guarantee.
And although there’s other products attempting to train the hips by attaching at the waist, there’s only one original product which has gained wide spread popularity and often, so widely known that it’s often referred to as only “The Belt’.
And that my friends is The Core Velocity Belt.
Don ’t WAIST your time with anything else.
Now that you have a very basic understanding of what The Core Velocity Belt is all about, I want to provide you with some much, much cheaper alternatives and then by the end of this post you’ll have a deeper understanding of how to avoid waisting valuable training time, you’ll never get back.
*Disclaimer: This is not a paid endorsement for either product listed below.
**Regardless of which product you choose, without proper instruction you will not benefit, in fact it could be deemed harmful or dangerous. Buyer’s bewared.
So, here’s the first of two cheaper WAIST BELT alternatives you’ll see advertised as a similar product to the original Core Velocity Belt Training System.
Much Cheaper Waist Belt- Option #1 : ‘BASEBALL PLAYERS… “Teaches Proper Sequencing In 3 Easy Steps:”
Baseball Training Program #2: Actions Speak Louder Than Words
I’ll never forget my first ever travel ball game.
We’d waited all week for the day Saturday morning would come. Back then it seemed like a week lasted ten days, not seven. Especially the week of a big game.
Finally, the morning arrived.
We hopped on our Huffy ten-speeds and headed to the neighborhood across the street. Oh yeah, you didn’t know?
Back in the old days, travel ball was played between neighborhoods.
And participation trophies came in the form of Mom allowing you to ride your bike 3 miles to a game played in the backyard. Baseballs were a bonus.
But it wasn’t a big deal. A tennis ball would work too. And a whiffle ball. Or maybe even a softball. And if you didn’t have any of those, you’d just grab a roll of tape and shape into a circle. Baseball’s were usually a surprise bonus.
And pitching lessons?
- They came in the form of getting humiliated for giving up bombs that were quickly followed by a chorus of “oooooh’s and awwwwwww’s”.
- Those were the good ole days.
- There was no talk of mechanics unless it referred to the guy down the street who wouldn’t give us the ball, if it landed in his yard.
- And whenever someone talked about “using your legs” they were razzing you for going to slow up the hill on your bike.
It’s different. It’s a new generation.
The days of fighting your brother in the morning for “who gets to read the back of the cereal box” are gone.
Every kid nowadays has an iPhone or iPad. Kids are different because we as parents and coaches give them no choice but to be different. These days people FEEL like they don’t have to put in the time, especially with the copy and paste function seen on most computers these days. Years worth of work is available at the click of a button.
But, the issue so many coaches, parents and teachers miss is…. There’s a crucial difference between knowing and understanding..
What You Must Realize Is… There’s 3 Universal Laws which govern the personal and player development cycles
- Inputs become Outputs . – Everything affects everything.
- Intentions beget Actions – . Communication must be crystal clear.
- Form follows Function – Your mechanics are shadows of what we can’t see.
And these are the lessons I’ve learned from 12 years of obsessive research and development pertaining to The Core Velocity Belt.
Since I began coaching baseball as a college coach back in 2004…
- I had no idea the path it would lead me down.
- No thought of ever becoming a professional rabbit hole digger.
- To say I had a thirst for knowledge was an understatement.
I grew up in a single parent home with my brother. We were taught from an early age that if you put your name to it, it mattered.
And to this day, I preach that to my kids.
Just like last week when my middle daughter bragged of copying off another kids paper so she could get to recess earlier. I jerked her up, yes we still whip our kids, and told her…
When you put your name to it. It matters.
Sure, you can look over someone’s shoulder and see that 4+4=8, you know that. But there will be a day when you’re going to be asked how you arrived at that answer, and you’re not going to know because you never took the time to truly understand the steps to getting there.
What I’m really trying to tell you is this…
Quick to Recess-Slow to Math!
She looks at me and clearly gets it… Dad, will we get a trophy after the game this week?
Geez, you went 1-8 baby. Quit worrying about a participation trophy right now and focus on what’s important. The last thing you want is a reputation for being the slow kid at recess carrying around a participation trophy.
We’ve already got an entire country of people like that, you’re better than that!
Luckily she’s 8, she’s still got a chance.
But my point is…
I believe in old school traditions when it comes to country, competition, community and faith.
- Cause like you… I grew up in a time when the only alarm clock you knew, were the street lights.
- It was back in the days when a dinner bell, was actually a real live dinner bell.
From An Early Age, We Were Taught The Value of Hard Work.
- We were taught that you’re where you are today because of choices.
- The decisions you made in the past are what propel your actions today.
- That the best lessons in Life are self taught, and the most memorable experiences are felt.
But today’s kid or baseball player doesn’t understand that…
Why would they?
- They’ve got no problem accepting participation trophies.
- And sadly neither do a lot of those we view as coaches, trainers and instructors.
I’m 100% convinced pitching lessons hurt more kids than they help.
Because I know from experiences. I’ve seen it.
And I’ll Be The First To Admit, I’ve Probably Un-made As Many Pitchers as I’ve Developed.
However, I’ve learn from my experiences and move on.
- But what if you don’t know?
- What if you’re a parent that’s willing to do whatever it takes to help your son, but you don’t know where to start?
Well, you’re going to be vulnerable to mistakes and the experts found on every single corner and really, that’s what this message is really about today.
We both know how this whole baseball instruction thing works.
- It’s frustrating.
- It’s all about mechanics.
- Scientific research.
- There’s an expert on every single corner and most have never coached a single inning of a real game, their entire Life.
But, we never stop to think about that…
We never ever stop to think there were Hall of Fame pitchers and 100MPH throwers long before science and slow mo video, either.
- Back then it was a game played on FEEL, driven by sweat and woven into our hearts.
- But today, it’s different.
- Nothing’s really earned.
- Anyone can be a coach or an instructor.
All it requires to be an expert instructor these days is an opinion and it’s created a monumental gap between knowing, and understanding.
No doubt, the problems and frustrations our kids are facing today in the world of travel ball and instruction is driven by the almighty dollar. And that’s sad because the only one’s really hurting are the kids. Especially when you’ve got so-called experts walking around with their hands out.
Want to know how bad it really is today?
Think about this…
- Ask 5 pitching coaches the same question tell me how many different answers you get.
- Ask kids on your team if they know what you’re talking about when you tell them to “stay back” and see how many raise their hands. Next, hand each player who raised their hand a piece of paper. Ask them “What stays back and when does it start moving forward?”
- How many different answers did you get with that one?
I could keep going, but you get the point. Right?
Today’s pitcher is Looooong on information but short on communication.
I realized this some 12 years ago when my oldest daughter accidentally discovered what would later become the training tool that re-shaped the thoughts of pitching mechanics and rocked the foundation of modern pitching instruction.
And to think that a product used by the games biggest starts and the teams with most widely recognized reputations….
Was actually invented by a 6 year old girl. Crazy!
A little girl bored to death and doing what little girls do when they’re stranded in an empty basketball gym waiting for Dad. She was only attempting to entertain herself while her old man finished up pitching lessons.
And since that day, I’ve done everything in my power to bring the game back to the players….
Combining new-age scientific principles using old-school methods of communication.
Because I realize the first step in player development starts:
- The person first…
- And second comes the actual pitcher.
As years passed I dug into research to find more effective ways to communicate with my pitchers and one of the most interesting studies I found read like this:
Based on research form Purdue University…
- 55% of all people are visual learners
- 42% of all people are auditory learners
While kinesthetic learners make up the final 2% inside the general population.
So, I began testing each pitchers method of learning inside my camps in hopes of shortening the communication gap. Since that time we’ve compiled over 1350 subjects.
And you want to know what we’ve found?
The game of baseball is dominated by FEEL.
And the numbers we’ve tested prove that.
Here’s the test data we’ve compiled over the past 5 years and 1351 testing subjects from the ages of 10-27 years of age.
- 48% visual
- 49% Kinesthetic
- 3% Auditory
Especially when you consider most pitching and baseball instruction is dominated by auditory cues and verbiage.
Are you starting to see where I’m going with this?
Anytime the human body is given instructions on what to do..
- The information must be crystal clear because any sort of miscommunication will appear in the form of inefficient movement.
- Multiple tasks which are asked to be performed simultaneously are a recipe for disaster.
In other words…We’re talking about a broken system.
One that which makes Obama Care look like the. Savior to America’s Health Care Crisis but we both know that’s not true.
Yet, we continue to sign our kids up for lessons, over and over, day after day putting them in a position to fail, a game they have no chance for winning.
I realized this after studying the teachings of Paul Nyman’s work. I became obsessed.
And before you know it, I’d gathered enough information to feel comfortable releasing my first system for teaching new age science using an old-school approach. And I called it the Pitching Mechanics MasterMind System.
- The entire premise centered around connecting:
- The goal to your senses
- Player to coach by asking questions
- Letting a player FEEL it versus just seeing it and hearing it because both are another man’s opinion. (It’s why 15 coaches say 15 different things)
And Question #1 – What Do You FEEL?
So whenever I introduced the pitching world to my method for teaching pitchers “How to FEEL their mechanics.” The goal was to take the coaching out of instruction and get back to the old school days. Where lessons weren’t needed and more importantly, kids weren’t confused, getting burned out and finally starting to FEEL good about doing it on their own.
Because I’ve learned…
The best lessons in Life are self taught and Life’s most memorable experiences are FELT!
I wanted to reward kids for working hard and doing it on their own. Get away from all the others out there that were doing more harm than good, out to make a dollar, turning pitchers into pitching mech-addicts, forcing them to become dependent upon hour long lessons, not having any idea what to adjust on their own.
And that’s why I created that system. It was coaching genocide.
And it caught on..
Suddenly you started to see the concept of FEEL used every where and it was awesome. However, the only place you saw it all caps under each email and inside every post was BaseballThinkTank.
It caught on quickly and I was so excited that I could contribute to making some kid or parents world better. But this is baseball instruction. A modern day Gold Rush where old school values are Trumped by the almighty dollar.
Filled with guys quick to splurt out a catch-phrase, “Knowing but not Understanding.” (As my mentor Paul Nyman would say) .
So I started getting paranoid that others were trying to steal my material to market their products. So, I reached out to two in specific. Just so happens they’re partners, but that was a coincidence I’m sure.
Anyways, people were using the words FEEL ( in all caps and bold) and “What Do You FEEL” in in their marketing campaigns.
S0, me being me..
I reached out to them and posted my opinion on social media. And the next thing I know I’m getting letters from his lawyer????
I was told this gentleman had been using it for years and they were right…
It’s even in a newspaper clipping dating back to 2006.
I suddenly realized this must be a coincidence.
All One Big Mistake! What Do You FEEL about it?
Back to more important stuff… Sorry I get like that sometimes. I’m paranoid.
Where was I?
Maybe you’re not familiar with my FEELoshophy, no worries. Here’s how it works.
- Imagine you’ve got 5 pitchers in your room right now.
- Each are from a foreign country and none of them speak your language.
- However, you’ve been assigned to teach them the definition of Hot. And you’ve only got a few minutes to make it happen.
So, you start with the traditional baseball instructional method.
You yell Hot!
- And you say it even louder when they look at you confused. (Maybe they can’t hear you?). So you say it louder in hopes the def tones will sink in and understanding will take place. No luck.
- Next you break out a picture of the beach and son shining, but they still don’t get it.
Time’s running out.
You’ve got less than a minute to go.
And as soon as your’e about to give up, one of your students places his hand on the metal heating vent and yells what you believe to be a 4-letter word in his native language.
So, you gather up all 5 students and say, “Hot” while placing each of their hands to the heating vent.
Now they know.
Now, no matter what they call it in their foreign tongue, they understand the definition of Hot. You’ve done your job. You don’t have to worry about talking so much where the player gets confused.
Just like I’ve said before, players can FEEL it rather than just see or hear what he’s being asked to do.
Below is another coincidence of using the word FEEL in all caps but I don’t have it copyrighted and in no way am I suggesting they are following what I do, why would they?
That’s why I Teach Movements you can FEEL, not mechanics you can’t.
It’s what I believe.
- I avoid over-coaching at all costs.
- I keep my mouth shut.
- I ask question after question and I do my best to keep the goal simple and let them feel it to figure out on their own.
Because I realize…
Most of the flaws you see in pitching mechanics are man-made and more pitchers are un-made versus developed.
But I also knew the value of hard work.
I witnessed from a front row seat that the greatest players had a burning desire to compete. Unlike so many who found it easy to compete in a crowded room where you knew you’d get the praise and attention from coaches, these guys took it a step further. They didn’t rely on others to get the job done for them, they did it themselves.
It was my job to get out of the way and let these players flourish, find ways to spotlight their natural abilities.
And I found the best players Compete In Empty Rooms!
Great players competed in Empty Rooms, dark corners of development where they were willing to sweat and bleed without recognition of any kind.
But, honestly I would have never figured any of this out…
Had it not been for the accidental discovery of my 6 year old hyper-active daughter, Ryley.
In case you didn’t know I discovered The Core Velocity Belt by accident. Actually my 6 year old daughter did after slamming into a concrete wall. Little did I know at the time, but that accident would do more to my head, than hers.
Because over the next 12 years, I found myself digging around searching for answers to the device which would later become famously known as The Core Velocity Belt.
I found myself constantly falling in and digging out of rabbit holes, spending 10’s of 1000’s of hours researching and reaching out to anyone and everyone.
- Physicists and just about anyone and everyone I thought could possibly help me find the answers I was seeking regarding the laws of motor learning, anatomy, physiology, psychology and engineering.
But it wasn’t until I started dabbling into the Central Nervous System that I actually started to transforming my mind and started to view the body as a dynamic system where everything affects everything.
I had graduated into a deeper level of understanding.
Looking back on those hours spent dabbling and testing what was then a Waist Support Belt belt, I started to see things I’d never seen before. Both good and bad. I knew was onto something but I didn’t understand what it was.
Like so many of you who see today’s Core Velocity Belt, I mistakenly identified the device as an over-speed device, but soon realized the human body is hard-wired to protect itself and will go to great lengths to protect itself at all costs.
I soon realized you had to convince your body it was OK to move faster,(Remember this) because it’s hand was never to far from the brake!
So, you’ve got to send a clear signal the body it’s ok to move fast, and until it receives that signal, you better believe it will stay close to the break.
I wrote about that inside the Original Core Velocity Program and again in 2.0 and most recently 3.0… (Letting you know the body won’t move fast until it feels OK to move fast.)
You see, the human body is hard-wired to protect itself.
- It will go to great lengths to preserve itself.
- Its why breathing is important.
- It’s why stability and mobility are important.
And one of the…
Most Important Lessons I Ever Learned Came From Paul Nyman When He Told Me…
The human body…
- Craves equal and opposite.
- Craves balance.
My mind switched and suddenly I started to see clearly.
This was all well and good, but I still had to find a way to communicate it to the pitcher. Because just like the company mentioned above in their ad, you’ve got to let the player FEEL rather than just see or hear.
So, being I’m a KY public educated school graduate, I had to come up with a way to explain it to myself where it made sense.
A method which would allow me to not only understand but would also allow me to speak in terms my students and pitchers could understand. And that’s what I did.
- Pretty soon, I started to share my ideas with all of you guys inside my emails and site.
- I shared the tenets of Peer Pressure. It was my way of explaining how the body works as a system for, both good and bad.
- How you can change something on the front side and it’s reflected on the back side.
- Why Arm speed is instant, Arm strength is not. This explained the importance of the center mass and is another form of peer pressure.It’s why outfielders give you the impression of losing arm strength when they step on the mound.
And there was a whole list of terms, but that’s not important right now.
What’s important is that you not only know, but understand how The Core Velocity Belt really works to do all this.
And once you do, you’ll understand why:
- It’s used by over 170 NCAA D1 baseball programs.
- 2 of the past 3 College World Series Champions
- And 21 MLB organizations
But, why? How does it benefit players and coaches?
- Because it prevents Over-Coaching.
- It allows the player focus on FEELing the movement you’re asking him to perform without you having to know “how to do it yourself” or even better, it promotes us keeping our mouth shut.
- It takes the OVer-Thinking out of mechanics.
- Forces players to Trust.
- Starts to re-program what many believe to be muscle memory.
- Self teaches the player to make adjustments on his own, correcting flaws without us saying a word.
- And it also fine tunes movement flaws by forcing the body to take the most efficient path.
But the most important benefit of The Core Velocity Belt is that it provides the human brain with the quality of feedback it so desperately craves.
- Too often today’s player focuses on quantity,
- Whereas The Core Velocity Beltand it’s teaches thirsts for quality.
It’s why I’ve told you time and time again…
The fastest way to increase your velocity is sealing the leaks forcing you to lose velocity and if you want more output, be cautious of what you in-put.
But, how does The Core Velocity Belt do all these things I’m talking about?
But since the beginning of my self-education, I’ve relied on guys much smarter than me and that’s why I’ll let the NFL’s Chief Medical Director explain what’s really going on with The Core Velocity Belt.
Told ya he was smart.
But, it took me over 12 years to refine and develop The Core Velocity Belt in order to make this happen.
First off The Belt’s patent design focuses on the glutes and center mass, not the waist.
The Core Velocity Belt…
- Focuses on the power center for human movement.
- The center mass.
- The center mass is the region of the body which encompasses the top of the thigh to the bottom of the belly button.
- And it compresses the glutes, which are the primary rotators of the hips.
Think of the center mass as the fuse box between the upper and lower half. Call it the other half.
And last but not least…
According to Wiki and other scientific reference guides…
2 (Wiki) Reasons Why I Would Never Use A Waist Support Belt…
- Hips have a particular purpose, to assist leg activities such as running, cowering, walking, running.
- Our waist doesn’t have any particular objective,
Anyways, now that you realize the waist and hips are 2 totally separate body parts…
I don’t want to waist your time any longer, lets talk about the center mass now.
The center mass serves several different functions pertaining to human movement, all of which is required inside the sport of baseball, if you’re ever to be labeled mechanically correct.
And no matter what move you make, it can’t be made without the center mass and no corner can be turned without the assistance of the glutes.
- But what separates him from everything else is the actual design that took years and years of learning how not to do it.
- Thinking it was the hips responsible for turning and not being educated enough at the time to know it was really the glutes who were the motor driving the engine.
And I can say with certain there’s two major obstacles preventing so many players from reaching their ultimate potential in this game and those two factors are:
- Body awareness and…
- Movement literacy
Both share the common denominator between the lack of both an internal and external understanding. Like I said earlier, today’s pitcher is looong on information and short on communication.
And there’s 100’s of factors to blame…
- Coaching (bad habits/muscle memory)
- Verbal cues
- Travel baseball not requiring a bike, etc…
But the biggest problem in a rotationally dominated sport such as baseball is hip proprioception.
Important points to help you understand how The Belt Works!
- Doesn’t improve strength.
- Teaches your brain to focus on those muscles to move better.
- Many if not most players, have really poor proprioception of the hips.
- Hip stabilizer muscles are key.
- Strong in your glutes you will be stronger
Let it be known….
The Core Velocity Belt Trains Your Brain To Fine-Tune Movements, Correct Flaws and Stabilize the Muscles In Your Hips… Stronger Glutes, Stronger Hips.
And that’s where The Core Velocity Belt has impacted the game of baseball the most.
- It’s why I teach movements you can FEEL, not mechanics you cannot.
- It’s why I seek questions and avoid answers.
- It’s why I say “what to” and not “How to”.
But, to be honest, I would have never known any of this and probably not even met Dr. Sills had it not been for my years and years of research on pitching mechanics and the human body.
The Core Velocity Belt really transformed my thought process and made me re-think everything I thought I knew, read and ever heard about pitching mechanics.
In the beginning I believed everything I heard because I didn’t know enough to question what I was hearing or seeing. I knew I was onto something early but it wasn’t ready to be released, I had to learn more!
Early on, my biggest obstacle was the design, it was simply a WAIST support belt that attached around the players waist and here were the problems I was encountering..
- It didn’t activate the primary rotators, the glutes.
- It didn’t compress my glutes so my players lacked glute awareness.
- It wore like a traditional belt and would slide upwards.
- It forced my players to spin versus rotate.
Here, watch this video…
And here’s an example of ‘spinning”, call it “squashing the bug”...or Standing Hip/Shoulder Separation is what they call it… (Start Video at 2:53 to see example of spinning hips)
“”How to” Pitching Mechanics – Hip and Shoulder Separation” . (The Core Velocity Belt does not endorse this video as “How To” teach hip/shoulder separation… We view this as (“How Not To Ever Teach Separation This Way)
Anyways, I wish I could have met this guy earlier in my career because inside this 14 minute video is information that took me 12 years to find. (I am not saying this guy is using my work, let it be know that this is a coincidental again.)
Watch the video, or don’t.
Either way we’ll discuss some key points…
“What this works on is the muscles in our lower half, how to engage them properly, how to correct movement errors intuitively with the athletes because not a lot of coaching will get done. So what this will help us do is build good muscle memory.”
Does his product do all these things… I know The Core Velocity Belt does, that’s why I listed each of these benefits back in 2014 within the first three paragraphs.
In fact, most of what he’s saying can be found on the intro of The Core Velocity Belt’s first 140 words according to Google.
Builds Good Muscle Memory?
“We don’t want to over-coach this. We don’t want to talk a lot when our athletes are doing this drill, or if your doing this drill for yourself, don’t think too much. Coaches definitely don’t talk. We want to eliminate that.”
There’s an argument for quality over quantity, but we want to take a lot of reps, but we want them to be good rep. We don’t want to take a lot of bad reps. Again, that’s grooming bad muscle memory. We want to take a lot of quality reps. Again, if we take less reps, but they’re good reps, they’re quality reps, that’s gonna be more beneficial than taking more reps that are bad reps.
Heres my take on Quality over Quantity, Ive referenced the importance of this concept 27 times since releasing The System…(Oct 16′)… Another coincidence.
I wont bother commenting on “FEELing the movement.”
And one of my favorite comments was…
“You’ve got to let the body know it’s ok to move that fast.”
But by far my favorite part of his speech was…..
Now the in the box, in the game, we don’t want to think about our mechanics any more. We want to trust our hands, trust our body, trust our mechanics, just see the ball, and hit the ball. Again, practice time working on a drill, working in batting practice, that’s the time to work on mechanics, build our mechanics, build that muscle memory. When we get in the game, we just got to know it.
I realize you’re not supposed to do this but I can’t help myself…I’m going to steal this original concept.
Now, don’t get me wrong… I don’t think these guys copied my info… It’s a coincidence.
Just the other day I was asked…
So, let’s recap the differences:
- At the end of the day, you’re really investing in the education, the WHY behind The Core Velocity Belt and based on what I’ve seen with the PowerCore 360 instructional videos, most of the marketing doesn’t match up with the instruction but that’s just my opinion.
- The Belt is designed for pitchers to train from the mound, it looks as if most of the time with the PowerCore is designed to train from the bench or chair.
- The Belt doesn’t come standard with any sort of vest and I know there’s some pitching coaches that absolutely love a vest, just not me. It’s all about the lower body and coaching the body to work as a system, not two separate parts.
- The Belt is designed to heighten awareness of the hips and center mass by covering the entire region whereas the PowerCore goes around the waist, TWO TOTALLY different functioning body parts. (The Belt is patented, the words FEEL are not copyrighted.)
- The Core Velocity Belt is combination of years of research and development, includes over 30 HD videos, 76 pages of instruction… The PowerCore360 is teaches proper sequencing in 3 easy steps.
So, to see it for yourself one more time…
Here’s the two again:
The Core Velocity Belt:
So if you ask me…
What’s The Difference?
I’m going to tell you…
What The HELL Is Even Remotely Close?
Really at the end of the day, it’s the information and instruction that has led to:
- Over 170 NCAA D1 programs using The Belt
- 2/3rds of MLB organizations trusting The Belt
- 2 of the past 3 World Series Champs using The Belt
- 8/10 of college baseball programs using The Belt
- 3/5 top NCAA teams in ERA using The Belt.
I could keep going but you get the point. And I’ll finish with one of my favorite movies I FEEL sums up the difference between The Core Velocity Belt and PowerCore 360.
Oh, and one more thing…
There’s a monumental difference between Knowing and Understanding!
What do you FEEL?
Trust what you FEEL!
P.S: Prior to writing this article I had reached out to PowerCore to ask they stop using FEEL in all caps and before you know it I got a letter from their attorney demanding I take down my thoughts from Social media. They have been using the word for years, so I want everyone to know that this article is not a paid endorsement by that company.
And that everything you just read, and the many, many similar thoughts and concepts of FEEL are 100% total coincidence.
BTW – If you’ve tried other products and are not seeing results or maybe you’re ready to learn how to actually pitch and train from a game mound where you will FEEL results transfer, or maybe you’re tired of training from a seated position, chair or from the bench.
If that’s you, do yourself a favor and take The Core Velocity Challenge and FEEL the difference for yourself.
