Part of being able to make a good weight shift in the golf swing is being able to use your body effectively.

Many average golfers, however, use their arms too much and their big muscles not enough, which makes it difficult to create any speed through the golf ball.

In this video segment, SwingFix instructor Justin Bruton shows you the “torture” drill, which is designed to help you get your body’s big muscles more involved in your golf swing.

Try out this drill the next time you have the chance to hit balls and you’ll likely see a gradual increase how much speed you can create even with a relatively short iron.
