In the continued emergence of Wright Balance technology we have discovered that we can bioengineer most players to create a trail arm delivery that fits their desired Core Region swing. It is as simple as the grip size used with the Wright Balance® Express Exercise. With repeated testing, most players are able to increase or decrease their Carrying / Power Angle depending on the handle size used during the Wright Balance® Express Exercise.
The ideal trail arm delivery is set by the size of the handle used when doing the Wright Balance® Express Exercise in the 9 Core Region Stance Widths. The smaller the handle relative to the player's hand size, the more shallow the Carrying or Power Angle will be for play. Similarly, the larger the handle used during the Wright Balance® Express, the greater the Carrying / Power Angle will be (relative to hand size). You may need to "experiment" with different handle sizes to produce the desired degrees of the carrying angle, depending on the playing Core Region.
NOTE: BE CERTAIN TO USE GAUZE TAPE OR FINGER SLEEVEs ON THE POWER SPOTS OF THE 3 CORE SUB-REGIONs WHEN DOING THE WRIGHT BALANCE® EXPRESS IN THE 9 STANCE WIDTHS
Once you determine the handle size to use to create the desired carrying / power angle, be certain your student continues to use that handle size each time they do the Wright Balance® Express in the 9 Stance Widths. If they don't use the same handle size, their trail arm delivery will change and performance will deteriorate.
Note: If the player has a trail arm shoulder injury with limited motion they will play as an Upper Core Player. If that is the case, bioengineering their Carrying / Power Angle should still focus on 162 to 164 degrees. Why? If a handle size that is too big or too small is used to do the Wright Balance® Express, the trail arm delivery won't match their swing. Always use a handle size for an Upper Core Player that creates a Carrying / Power Angle of 162 to 164 degrees.
Also remember whatever is engineered in the Carrying / Power Angle will also be their thigh angle at address. These angles are the players range of motion throughout the body. If the thigh angle is too shallow or too great, their ability to rotate back and through the swing and use the ground efficiently is compromised.
