On Leverage & The 3 Levers

As I always do, I’m going to post little snippets or previews to the work I’ve gotten done on the upcoming “EMCS2 – The Follow Up” video, and today’s offering is on the nature of Leverage and the “3 Levers” concept of a mechanically-correct golf swing.

I talked about the 3 Levers last summer.

Below, you see the picture of a swing model using the 3 Levers, a static “At Address” pose:

  1. Lever One – The Shoulders, C7 & Leading Arm,
  2. Lever Two – The Power or Trailing Arm & Elbow
  3. Lever Three – The Wrists, Hands & Club Shaft

If you synchronize the action of the 3 Levers properly, you will maximize your efficiency and power production (with the little added bonus of also maximizing your accuracy and consistency in ball-striking), allowing you to get the most out of your swing with the least effort:

Using The 3 Levers Properly

I would likely acquire a hernia trying to generate the club speed and power with a Modern Golf Swing action that I get from my MCS Golf Swing model, the optimal version of the Classic Golf Swing action, or perhaps a back surgery or two, so I prefer to do it in this manner, using the hips & legs rather than raw muscle power.

In the swing gif. above, that drive would have produced over 300 yards in distance with a range ball, and you don’t see any jumping, snapping or twisting of the font leg or foot, nor a “harpoon drop” trying to generate down swing speed, because it’s a naturally leveraged action.

In fact, if you go back to the Bobby Jones posting from a couple of days ago, you’ll see the exact same action in his swing as in the MCS swing model with regards to the 3 Levers.

I produced the “E = MCS” swing video to be the simplest golf swing model and explanations possible, and the “EMCS2 – The Follow Up” will, as I’ve mentioned, delve into common swing problems, why they occur, and how to fix them using a Kettle Bell and the “One Exercise” that will be found therein.

I’ll be explaining the proper sequencing aspect of the 3 Levers of course, and how the hips & legs feature into the concept.

Back to work!
