The “One Exercise” Field Testing – Success

I mentioned that I was giving the “One Exercise” to various people to test out so see if it helped their personal issues with building a fully MCS golf swing, and I am pleased say that my prediction has borne out.

Whatever the issue is, if you perform the “One Exercise” for either the back swing or down swing, you will see a very quick and dramatic increase in mechanical performance, and I can’t wait for you all who’ve reserved the coming “EMCS2 – The Follow Up” video to try it and see for yourselves.

The key to everything is in simplifying it so that you can’t get it any simpler, and that goes for both the swing model itself, the drills to aid one in not only understanding the mechanics, but also things that will help ingrain those mechanics and to add power and increase strength and endurance in performing the motion.

I had said that I personally showed Welshman (who is 59 years young and very new to the MCS school) this exercise, and he couldn’t get enough of it last week.

He did exactly what I think one should do when working on this exercise – he would get the Kettle Bell that I had brought to the range, perform the leverage exercise a few times, and then pick up a club and hit some balls.

His personal issue was early turning of the shoulders in the down swing, as well as having issues with the hip action, but as I say, the “One Exercise” makes you have to use the hips and legs to perform it properly, and you immediately get the physical feedback you need to be able to then translate it into the swing.

I received word from Welshman yesterday that, just a few days after I showed him the exercise, and working on it using a barbell that he has at home in lieu of the Kettle Bell, he was able to click his SwingRite stick on its hardest setting, which is of course a great improvement in speed and power through the swing bottom.

So, with the “E = MCS” golf swing video, I have presented the simplest possible way to swing with proper mechanics (using the “One Major Move” concept) to produce optimal leverage, speed and power, and the drills and exercise therein to aid one in building that MCS swing.

With “EMCS2 – The Follow Up,” I’ve been allowed to delve more deeply into the specific aspects of the swing once in motion, and the “One Exercise” will aid those of you who requested my assistance in addressing problem areas.

You will find that this exercise coordinates the entire body fully (while giving you a nice physical workout as well), and the more and longer you do it, the better results you’re going to get.

The bonus?

That even I am now doing my “One Exercise” to keep my body in swing shape even when I’m not playing or hitting balls, and having done so in the month I took off swinging meant that when I again picked up my clubs, I had lost no speed or power and just had a little rust to shake off before I was back and as solid as usual.

    I now understand what you mean, this exercise/move can do you in after a short time of doing it. If I’ve figured it out correctly, it does make you do the right move for the golf swing. I have added in a little twist with the weight and swinging the heavy club. I found on another channel a move they call the flamingo drill, with the right foot pulled back (for right handers) from the line about a foot, right toe is about even or a little behind my left heel, with a narrower stance.

    What I do to work on the foot movement is start on my right toe, plant my heel, and then move to the left heel in a balanced position, (like making a swing). it make me work my shoulders in a more mechanical way. should stop any over the top move from the top, and work my hips with more stability. For me this becomes a more total golf swing workout. Just my experimenting. Jim

    jh32 ~~ I think altering The One Exercise is a bad idea. The flamingo drill is sure not going to allow you to do the pivot correctly. Right heel in the air is not a position to accept the weight from the right toe as you get to the top of the backswing. In fact, it was designed as I just looked it up to keep your weight LEFT like stack and tilt. I could be wrong in my analysis though 🙂

      DK, I still am doing, what I think it is, the one exercise drill alone without any adjustments. . The flamingo is a swing training, and yes you are right with your analysis that this would be more of a stack and tilt, except I modified it so that I get a weight shift and pivot action getting to my right heel, and then pivot back to a full finish on my left leg. I am experimenting until the new video comes out.

    I’m anxiously waiting for the video. I think I have an idea of what the One Drill is, but want to make sure I am doing it correctly focusing on the right things before starting. I’m so close to having the new swing working the way I think it should. If this drill can help me stop hitting thin almost every time and calm my strong draw down (quickly turns into a hook) I will be cooking with gas. Just in time for winter… 🙂

      It shouldn’t be too much longer, Jeff – just doing a little field-testing to iron out the wrinkles, but everything I’ve heard back about it is that is it the only One Exercise you will ever need, provided you’ve built your setup properly using the MCS principles… if someone tries this exercise with a Modern Golf Swing model (using just their torso twist and the upper body), they may end up in traction.

      But MCS swingers won’t have to worry about that!

      As for winter – you spend a few weeks or months doing this exercise daily or every other day – you will be in a really good place once the spring arrives. 😀
