PitchVision batting coach Gary Palmer has been causing a bit of a stir.
After years of experimenting and developing he has come up with the ultimate batting session.
A batting session that is so effective and so complete he has been showing it to open-mouthed coaches at several first-class counties.
But here is the kicker; it teaches you to bat in a way that has never been taught before.
Gary calls it 4 Angles, and it’s the only session you will ever need as a coach or a player.
Why 4 Angles works
Batting can be boiled down to a simple ABC method; alignment, balance and completion of shot.
To be consistent as a batter, these key elements of batting need to be constantly addressed within a batting technique.
4 Angles is a systematic and innovative session designed for all ages and levels of players. It’s been designed and tested by Gary Palmer to progressively develop your ABC’s through the position and swing of a bowling machine.
By doing this your technique becomes ingrained far more quickly than just facing bowlers from one, or two angles of attack. You are equipped to survive high class spells of bowling early on in your innings and thrive when you get set.
Using different angles the batsman is challenged to:
- Construct a solid technical base because the closer to perfection you are, the more versatile you are.
- Fine tune a well-established technique against good quality bowling
- Monitors and maintains technique to stop bad habits forming
- Adds pressure to technical work for advanced players
- Identify and, with good coaching, correct good technique
- Add natural flair
Unlike a typical technical session, 4 Angles lets you face all angles and swing/spin types. You are forced to adapt to every possible type of bowling and you will be more effective.
The session is a simple way to improve the way you play swing and spin bowling simply, naturally and effectively. Gary has improved the technique of dozens of players over the last few years while fine-tuning it at his Academy sessions.
What Is 4 Angles?
So what is the magic sequence?
At the moment Gary is keeping the exact details close to his chest. He’s saving it for the guys he has been coaching.
But he is so confident it works he has already shown it to 5 first-class counties, with more to follow.
And you can get the exact details too.
