If you want clear and convincing proof that the golf swing, any swing in fact, is powered not by the arms but the legs and hips, just watch this javelin training clip and you’ll see something even I’ve never noticed before (not that I sat around watching javelin throwers, I was always on the track when I competed, no field except for high and long jump).
You’ll see that the whole engine driving the javelin throw is actually in the hips and legs. I don’t have much to say about this as it clearly shows what I’ve been saying for some time now.
If you want to learn how to swing powerfully and with speed, you’re going to have to use the body as the engine that powers the arms and hands. You don’t move the hands and arms, you move the hips and legs to move the arms and hands.
The hips and lower body lead, the rest of the body follows. Except with the golf swing, it’s a below-the shoulders swing and not above throwing. Same principles, all day long.
Doesn’t get much clearer than that!
