Those are phrases that many people use.
I also use them, but quite differently than most people do.
This piece overlaps with a number of my other pieces.
The conventional usage of the phrases "Loading Up" and "Load Up" refer to the stride; often, a linear rearward movement that precedes a linear forward movement.
However, as I explain when I talk about Coil, I'm not an advocate of large linear movements because that's not what I see in the best hitters.
Yes, there's a Linear component to a high-level swing.
But not a big one.
So what do I mean when I talk about "Loading Up?"

And then I saw it.
