This week we will:
- Strengthen the lower legs for more push-off power in the downswing
- Strengthen the trunk which is critical in making an effective turn
Now lets get started!
Start: Hold the weighted club in front with the clubhead facing you and place one foot back.
Action: Slowly bend the knee of the forward leg and lean slightly forward keeping the heel of the rear leg on the ground.
Finish: Hold for 15 seconds and repeat to the opposite side.
Tips: Keep both knees slightly flexed. Do not arch the back. Strong calves add more push-off power in the downswing.
Start: Stand with both feet shoulder width apart, hips rotated forward and holding the swing trainer at the grip and clubhead. Raise swing trainer overhead.
Action: Flex both knees slightly and slowly bend at the waist to create the stretch.
Finish: Return to the start position and repeat to the opposite side.
Tips: Do not arch the back. Do not tilt the hip outward. Keep the neck in a neutral position.
