The top half of the body is now set up with a “Degree of Separation” to the bottom half. It can know work efficiently provided it has sufficient forward momentum and avoids falling through the unweighting
All the top bowlers naturally load to optimise the momentum out into release
Animals are wonderful examples of how the body uses the different segments to optimise movement. Take some time and watch how they use extension, flexion, rotation, ground reaction forces and run ups to achieve appropriate end goals
The energy out of touchdown determines the safe optimal use of the levers
The best optimise the lever length for the requirements,thereby optimising arm momentum (mass x velocity)
Given the top half has set up the coil, it is the top half that begins the rotation out. But remember the bottom half has greater mass so it must have been appropriately loaded or it will manipulate the optimal patterning!
A study done in the early 70’s at the University of Western Australia highlights the hip drop when the body is loaded with insufficient momentum
Dennis improvement in his ability to load the body is clearly evident in the before and after pictures
Set it up appropriately and the body will naturally deliver
