I have been expounding on the benefits of the “One Exercise” using the Kettle Bell (or something similar, like a dumb-bell, for example) to build and maintain a mechanically-correct and properly-leveraged golf swing, as well as for building strength in the relevant parts of the body, but…
… I have another use for the “One Exercise” that will surely tickle those of you who live in the more temperate climate regions (such as Canada, the northern U.S., much of Europe, etc.) which is that the “One Exercise” with an appropriate weight will also keep you in swinging shape!
That goes throughout the cold winter months off, or for anyone in any region who has to take extended time from playing due to work or other commitments.
I got a little taste of how effective it is when I was shooting the upcoming “EMCS2 – The Follow Up” video, in which I go through the multiple ways in which to train and trouble-shoot the different part of the swing.
I hadn’t done any heavy or regular swinging since back during the summer months, and the day after shooting the segment for the leverage-generating exercise using the hips & legs, I definitely “felt” it in the same back, shoulder and hip muscles that are sore after I’ve taken time off and go back to vigorous swinging.
There are certain muscles you don’t use much that you will definitely “feel” after winter or extended time off swinging, so the good news is that, more than anything else you can do to stay in swing shape during those times, the Kettle Bell “One Exercise” in its various forms will keep you strong and limber.
It’s happened to me, and I’m sure many others, when those first swings after weeks or months off feel very, very foreign, but with the Kettle Bell, you’ll likely feel very comfortable the next time you take a while off and then get back to swinging.
The Simplest Golf Swing Model Ever
I am very gratified by the comments and feedback since the release of “E = MCS,” and had one reader even write to me that it was to him “the simplest golf swing video I’ve ever watched,” which of course is exactly what I say it is.
With that in mind, I intend to make the supplemental video the best tool anyone swinging with the MCS Golf Swing model can have and use to hone and maintain their golf swing.
Let’s face it – you shouldn’t need a room full of specialized equipment and an array of training aids to be able to do one thing – to swing a golf club weighing 13 ounces with proper technique that you’d find in any other athletic motion.
I use my Kettle Bell and SwingRite, in fact, right in front of my TV between it and the coffee table, which gives me an area of less than 1 x 2 metres, or less than 3 x 6 feet, and if you have an area in your home of that size – you’ll be able to work on your swing all you want, whether it’s for speed or power or just to maintain your form.
So, there’s that!
The work continues, and the follow up video should be complete by week’s end!
