Remember the last time you were at the driving range and you saw the person that when they go through their swing it looks the body is held together by a steel rod? I see this all the time when I hit the links, I enjoy watching movement and how people move. Movement through the golf swing when done right looks effortless. “Titilist Performance Institute does not believe in one way to swing a club, rather in an infinite number of swing styles. But, we do believe there is one efficient way for every player to swing and it is based on what the player can physically do.” I love this! It is hard to teach an effortless swing to anyone if their movement patterns need help, but if there are restriction in the body how can we adjust our movements patterns to best suit the individual.
These 5 exercises are easy to complete but can be hard to perform, dissociation is one of the hardest skills to master if you don’t have it. This is a must for you to work on for your golf swing, to get the most power to the club. Force development is the key. We are trying to move force from the ground (through our feet), up through out legs, then hip, to the trunk, on to the shoulder then down the arms finishing through the club. At each of these steps we want to force to increase. But if we move out of this sequence we lose power into the club. These exercises focus on creating this sequence.
Consistency is important to change movement patterns. It will take 4-6 weeks to create true strength gain but after starting these exercises you will notice improvements because the muscle will become more efficient with their firing patterns.
