In Why You Top The Ball, you discuss pushing up through the shot zone. In Sequence is Everything you discuss standing up through the hitting area as early extension. Can you please clarify?

Great question. If you are standing up thru the ball by losing your posture, or spine angle, that is early extension. However, if you are pushing off the ground with your legs, while clearing your hips, and at the same time maintaining your spine angle, this is the powerful hit thru motion you are striving to create. This has the right blend of speed, for power and stability which produces consistency.
