<p style="margin:0in 0in 0pt;"><span>You’re at the Doctors and the nurse is about to take blood. Where does the nurse normally start tapping? Right there in the middle of the right arm (opposite is the elbow) tapping and tapping and tapping until the vein is found. (This I’ll call the Nurse’s position)</span>

<p style="margin:0in 0in 0pt;"><span>This is the same position of the right arm and elbow at (the stance – The Prop – The Address position) except instead of sticking your arm straight out you’re hugging your entire right elbow and upper arm <span> </span>into the body all the way down to the elbow. <span> </span>Pressing is a good word. Forcing is a good word. <span> </span>You’re looking for a good deep angle from the right forearm into the right upper arm & shoulder at the address-stance-prop position. .</span>

<p style="margin:0in 0in 0pt;"><span>I’ve been blessed to work with 3 level one players of this swing. They are good swingers, know the Norwood fundamentals and hit the ball well. All of their right arms were not at the nurse’s position and all of them slid the right elbow along the waist rather than rotating the exact opposite spot of the nurse’s position (the back of the right elbow) around the waist so it reasonable to say this is a major swing component which is not being explained properly. </span>

<p style="margin:0in 0in 0pt;"><span>How to paint this picture for you?</span>

<p style="margin:0in 0in 0pt;"><span>Put your right arm extending to 3:00 with the right arm hugging the body – like you’re shaking hands from your waist. Take your left hand and grasp the bottom of the right elbow (preferably have the elbow into the middle of the left hand – dead center) Thumb up the forearm and fingers holding on the right upper elbow joint – hold tightly with the left hand and pull to the left slightly as you rotate your right arm around your waist and at all times your right arm is hugging your waist. <span> </span>At the maximum rotation of the right arm which is about to the 7:30 position you should be able to extend your arm and let the nurse start tapping.</span>

<p style="margin:0in 0in 0pt;"><span>As you stretch deeply into the extensors of your body you must do this slowly so as not to tear anything like a muscle, tendon, nerve ending or such. Young ones can do this pretty easily while the rest of us must stretch and flex always – every day.</span>

<p style="margin:0in 0in 0pt;"><span>Sorry about the alignment. It appears this site does not match up too well with MSOFFICE.</span>
