One of the more difficult things we ask our clients to do here at The Baseball Rebellion, is to develop their own sense of rhythm and fluidity in their movements. Some players will naturally have a feel for their own rhythm and therefore have good tempo and timing in their load no matter what type of pitcher they are facing or what windup that pitcher uses. Unfortunately, not all hitters have a natural feel for tempo, so we've got to teach them how to feel themselves move in concert with the pitcher.
Here is a great guide for anyone interested in starting their swing off with a really nice "sway" move that I call the "Rock and Lock". Not everybody will feel accustomed to this move initially, but teaching this calm, repeatable, and easily practiced move is a good way to get the ball rolling. The "Rock and Lock" may end up being what works for you or you may modify it to meet your own personal comfort level and athletic gifts.
With time and practice this simple start can really help the hitter generate more power. It is so important the the player truly knows his or her own rhythm and tempo so that they also have great timing with each pitcher they face. Without an understanding of one's own athletic movements tempo, good timing with the pitch will be next to impossible and the added power of this 'falling' forward move will rarely show up. Thanks for watching!

PS: The best part about the "Rock and Lock" is that you can practice it ANYWHERE...as you don't have to swing or hit in order to perfect it. Any move before the TURN is about trust and discipline and the willingness to put time into the move in a mirror or with a Rebel's Rack to train your body and mind to relax and allow the calmness needed to perfect your "Rock and Lock" load.
