As I work on the eBook, I get up from time to time and you know exactly what I’m doing to strengthen and condition my swing muscles – the Kettle Bell “One Exercise” is all I need!
The two drills I’m working on are the 5, 6 & 7 sections from the “EMCS2 – The Follow Up” video. That would be the “Transition To Down Swing” for the leveraging, the “Extension 3 To 9” to continue that motion, and of course a little of the “Release & Finish” at the end.
As you saw in the video, it only takes a few minutes to get you breathing hard and really feel it in the legs, hips and back muscles, which all get a really good workout doing the drills, as you know if you’ve been doing them yourself.
Then, when I feel good and stretched out, I grab the SwingRite and practice my setup and a few good, hard (but mechanically-proper) swings:
… and I do a few of these before sitting back down to work.
For those of you who want the Full Monty of how I’m doing this all so that I can get back in the spring and be swinging even better than I was last season with regular practice – I work on the two things I wanted to adjust after looking at my swings at season’s end.
That would be, getting my setup correct for the actual motion and then, from the top, that perfectly head-stable “Drop & Pop” coming down and through.
The setup is merely at matter of following the procedure I laid out in the “E = MCS” video on matching the impact position to the address:
… and I have been guilty of not following my own procedure when setting up.
It’s kind of like a blueprint to the house you’re building – the most complete and proper blueprints will serve you little purpose if you don’t actually follow them precisely.
My best swings of the season last year were around the time I was shooting the clips for the “E = MCS” video and precisely for that reason – because I was doing everything the way I should have been:
… and because I don’t swing every day any more the way I did in years past during the swing research, I will admit that I get a little lazy sometimes and fall out of what should be the same routine/procedure for every swing.
But as I’ve said, everything I’ve worked on and figured out with swinging and motion are in the EMCS videos, and all I have to do myself is to follow those same principles.
Come the spring, I will have no excuses if I’m not swinging exactly the way I have built the MCS Golf Swing model!
