Starting My Spring Training – One Exercise!

I’ve already begun my “spring training” to be in swing shape when the snow clears in a couple of months.

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!

    Great advice DJ. We got into this mess of a golf swing with years of non MCS action, no better way to get back what we probably had than follow the blueprint you have laid out. Excellent stuff and so darn easy.

      Thanks for reinforcing my point, DK – I sure envy you getting all the course time you want down in the warmer climes. Can’t wait to get back outside!
