Pallof Press for Core Stability

Pallof Press for Core Stability

Improve stability by resisting the rotation…

The Pallof Press is one of the best exercises to build strength and stability in your core, especially for golf.

The Pallof Press builds the muscles responsible for rotation in your core without unnecessary pressure and force on your body or joints.

This exercise is deceptively difficult.

It doesn’t look like you’re doing much on the surface… but inside, you’ll feel nearly every muscle responsible for rotation and stabilization firing.

You should find the tension that allows you to do 20 – 25 Pallof Presses max.

For an additional challenge, try an isometric hold with your arms extended. The right tension means you can hold it for at least 30 seconds but not more than 60 seconds.

Thoracic Turn Test

Thoracic Turn Test

Check the separation between your hips and shoulders…

In the Kinematic Sequence, the hips fire first, then the shoulders, then the arms. This sequence creates a separation between the hips and shoulders in your downswing, using the muscles of the back and torso to further accelerate your rotation.

Tour Players frequently get 80° or more separation in their swing.

Amateur players usually get less than 30° of shoulder turn and use their arms to cheat, making it look like they took a deep turn.

Take the test and be honest with yourself.

When you cheat your turn, you are just swinging with your arms and losing power.

If you struggle to get good separation, don’t cheat your turn, use your body to help you take a full turn, all the way back and through the ball. The result is less effort and more distance.

Fat Shots

Fix Your Fat Shots…

If you’re hitting the ball fat, you are stalling your rotation at impact.

(Fat shots happen most often when you have less than a full swing because you’re trying not to over swing…)

There’s nothing worse than running into the ground before the ball… But the fix is simple.

Fat shots happen when your hips stall during your swing, usually because you are trying to control your distance and hit the ball instead of swing through the ball.

To fix your Fat Shots… Open up your stance and swing to an intermediate target to help encourage your hips to rotate all the way through impact.

Ground Forces

Ground Forces…

Swinging on a Swing Set Prepared You For This…

As a child, you used to swing on a swing set… pumping your legs at just the right time to go higher and higher.

Using ground forces in a golf swing works the same way.

You have to unweight (go down) and push (lift up) at just the right time to increase the speed of your club and still make contact with the ball.

This is a Black Tees concept, meaning it’s an advanced concept that takes a significant amount of practice. But even if you’re not looking to compete in the World Long Drive… the concepts behind how the club is accelerated around your body are important to understand.

You can start to play with feeling the pendulum of your swing and how you can affect the speed of the clubhead with relatively small movements in you knees and body.

How High Should You Tee the Ball

How High Should You Tee the Ball?

Practice the Different Height Tee Drill for Better Radius Control & Improved Ball Striking…

One of the most common questions… How high should I tee the ball?

Answer: It depends… Different heights make different shots a little easier, but tee height shouldn’t matter.

On the course… it’s really about preference.

Tiger Woods (and many Tour Pros) tees his ball lower than most amateur players.

On the range… you should practice hitting balls off of different height tees with driver and with every other club in your bag.

The range is almost perfectly flat… the course is variable. The ball is going to be above your feet or below your feet on almost every shot.

Practice hitting balls off of different height tees to help control your radius and improve your ball striking.

The best tee height for you is the one you feel you can control the ball flight the best. Forcing yourself to practice different tee heights will help you discover your personal preference while improving your ability to adapt to the demands of the course.

*If you use a Tornado Tee, the club glides through the flexible, woven top and it feels like hitting a ball out of thin air.

Your Body Is A Whip

Your Body Is A Whip

When you crack a whip, a relatively slow movement at the handle, a simple flick of the wrist, creates a wave of motion that accelerates as it travels down the whip and causes a “crack” because the tip of the whip breaks the sound barrier (767+ MPH).

If you try to grab a whip in the middle of the whip… it is incredibly hard to get the same “crack.” What was a simple, easy move… is now an extreme amount of effort.

There are two types of players… Arm-Swingers and Body-Swingers

Swinging with your arms is like grabbing the middle of the whip instead of the handle.

Most golfers who took up the game as an adult are Arm-Swingers. With adult arm-strength, adult comprehension, and adult motor skills, we use our arms to push the club and hit the ball.

Young kids, under the age of 12, usually start out as Body-Swingers. They don’t have the strength in their arms to hit the ball very far, so they sling the club back with their body rotation, then sling the club forward with rotation again. Those who find success and are good at hitting a ball in this manner grow into adult strength, comprehension, and motor skills and become very, very good players. (Only a handful of PGA Tour Professionals learned golf after the age of 12.)

Arm-Swingers struggle with consistency and have to spend hours at the range to “groove” their swing… because the arms are infinitely adjustable, an Arm-Swing requires lots of practice and fine motor skills. For most, an Arm-Swing results in a lot of tension, neck pain, and back pain.

Body-Swingers have an easy looking swing that is annoyingly consistent, even when they never visit the range and haven’t played in 3 months… because a Body-Swing uses the rotation of the body and passive arms. The only real variable in the swing is how fast you rotate.

Professionals and Professional-Level players use their Full Body. They have a Body led swing for consistency with the fine motor skills in their arms to control and manipulate the club to their will.

The Full Body Swing shows you how to use your body AND your arms efficiently. It starts by learning how to use your body… THEN add the arms.

Shoulder Mobility Test

Shoulder Mobility Test

Should you take a full swing? …

Take the Shoulder Mobility Test to see if you should be taking a full swing.

Shoulder mobility is an important part of playing golf.

If you have limited shoulder mobility, your body is going to compensate in other areas to make up for your swing. These compensations lead to pain in your low back, hips and knees…

Limited shoulder mobility is also the primary reason for inconsistent, weak ball striking.

Improve your mobility and bulletproof your shoulders with the Neck, Shoulders, & Mid Back Program.

Over The Top Test

Over The Top Test

Do you come over the top? …

If you slice the ball, your clubface is open relative to your club path… but that doesn’t mean you come over the top.

You can slice the ball from the inside or with a neutral club path as well.

It’s important to know WHY you slice…

IF… you come over the top, you’ll want to work on your club path

IF… you come from the inside or have a neutral path and you still slice… you’ll want to work on your clubface control.

(Two very different fixes for the same poor ball flight.)

Take the Over The Top Test and let us know if you pass.

Fix your club path and discover effortless power in your swing with The Full Body Swing.

Narrow Stance Drill

Narrow Stance Drill

Try this drill for Increased Balance and to Reduce Low Back Pain…

Nothing ruins a round faster than pain in your lower back.

Lower back pain can be caused by many reasons, from the wrong shoes… to over use… to serious chronic issues… But if you’re midway through the back 9 sitting on a low score, the only question is how you can finish the round without blowing up.

Try the Narrow Stance Drill. When you use a narrow stance, you take the hips out of the swing, which reduces tension and torque in your lumbar spine. As you build up to a full swing, you should be able to generate nearly the same speed as your wider stance. This drill improves your sequencing and balance.

Tension causes all sorts of issues in your swing…

  • Tension slows you down…
  • Tension changes your swing radius…
  • Tension causes poor contact…
  • Tension causes spastic and pulled muscles (Neck, Shoulder, Low Back, Hip, Knee, & Leg Pain)

It seems so simple… but it’s actually really hard to do.

Knowing how to swing without tension… And practicing your swing without tension will increase your distance and reduce injury.
