For example, you’ll have a right-handed swinger swinging right-handed, and they will be dominant with the righ hand, in the “throwing” or “pushing” type of visual to their swing action.
Conversely, you will have (for example, yours truly) a left-handed swinger swinging right-handed, and they will have a left arm dominance in their visual and action, “pulling” the swing with their leading arm and side.
The optimal action is the “full-body” swing, which coordinates both sides of the body, and while one may still have a dominant side in their visual, the swinger will be using the entire body consciously in a swing.
This is of course the most powerful action, and what one has to do in order to swing this way is to build the address stance that allows them to both “push” and “pull” in the down swing and still reach impact in the optimal position.
Why am I talking about this subject again?
Well, it’s because, in my search for the best visual concepts to aid people in swinging MCS, I have come up with one that, if testing bears out, is the concept of all concepts.
Using this same concept, one can practice and hone a left-handed, right-handed or whole-body swing, proving my assertion that if performed properly, all three swings should look virtually the same.
That would be due to the fact that even with a right-handed dominant motion, while the attention is devoted to the right side, the left side is still there and must act in concert with the right.
The same goes for the left-dominant pulling swing – for it to be performed optimally, the right side is still there, and must act in concert to the left side during the swing, even if the focus is on the left.
That is how you arrive eventually at the “full-body” swing – if one is left-dominant, you perform the swing drills focusing on the right side, to get the feel of how the right side acts with a right-dominant swing.
For the right-handed “thrower,” you do the same, switching to focusing on the left side action with the drill.
Once you have figured out that the sides move the same way whichever side you isolate, you can then simply swing away with both sides, and this will shock you, if you haven’t been realizing your full leverage and power.
I usually know when I develop a concept whether it will work or not for others, but I still have to test it out on others – which I am about to do.
The fact that I am talking about it now, before I even name this concept, should tell you how confident I am in it.
The concept of concepts.
