In fact, if you don’t have a ball to hit and just swing your club, it will feel like there’s not much power at all in your swing – but this is a good thing!
The less leverage you put into a swing, the more muscle power you have to use, and that’s why it “feel” more powerful as your muscles labor to produce the same swing speed and power as a more leveraged one.
Just for an example, take a look at Luke List vs Tiger Woods, and you tell me who you think has more natural leverage in his swing:
Luke List “Like Buttah…”
Tiger Woods, Yank & Twist
I’m experiencing that right now as I transition to swinging actual clubs again rather than my SwingRite, Kettle Bell and Momentus Heavy Iron.
I’ve been swinging those three training aids all winter – the SwingRite for speed, the Kettle Bell for maximum leverage, and the Heavy Iron for a combination of both, and switching over to my irons and driver has been… interesting.
But things are nearly ready to kick off.
It’s been a mild second half to the winter after the blast freezer temperatures that ushered in the season before New Year, and I’m confident that the golf facilities will be open well before April 1st this year.
I intend to be as ready as I can be after a winter off swinging (I deliberately didn’t go to the indoor places this winter, preferring to finish work on the “MCS Golf Swing” eBook and to just work on my setup and action) but I have to say that I get more work out of swinging the training aids than the regular clubs.
This is the advantage of learning your leverage points using the Kettle Bell in your “One Exercise” drills, because you should be doing the exact same thing in your golf swing.
