What Is A Backlift?

What Is A Backlift?

The backlift is an important part of batting because it helps the batsman get into a rhythm at the crease. It helps them to rotate their hips forward and their shoulders back, which in turn allows them to generate power on the ball by accelerating their hands downwards to make contact with it.

However, this isn’t an automatic skill. The best batsmen can vary their backlift height depending on the conditions they are playing in. For example, high backlifts are suited to hard and bouncy pitches such as those found in Australia or South Africa. These pitches are more suited to hook, cut and pull shots, so having a high backlift can help the batsman get their hands and bat up high over the ball before they strike it.

If you have sagging or loose skin on your back that doesn’t tighten up through vigorous workouts, a back lift can provide the results you need to feel more confident in your body. To determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure, schedule a consultation with our team at Richmond Surgical Arts. During your consultation, we will examine your back laxity and review your medical history. We will also discuss your goals and answer any questions you have. If you’re interested in combining your back lift with other surgical or non-surgical procedures, we can talk about that too. We do ask that our patients be in good health and within a certain body mass index range before they undergo this surgery, so we can be sure you’re able to heal properly.
