It was a pretty basic “warming up for the season” session, just to get the flow and some feel back after the 5 month winter layoff.
All I did was work on the setup to get comfortable with it, and of course on the “One Major Move” with regards to the swing action.
I can already see some shortening of the back swing due to the improved setup position, and it will likely get a little shorter before I’m finished with the tuneup.
Just the setup change did a good deal for allowing me to really get down into the impact and swing bottom before the hip turn began to lift my trailing heel on the better swings.
Next time out, I’ll put some “Big Legs, Little Arms” focus on the back swing pivot, then on the “Hammer Drop” move from the top for the “Drop & Pop” which will give me that “3 To 9” phase that I want to see (the trailing heel just beginning to lift at impact with even the hardest swings).
… and if all of that goes well, I’ll basically have the optimal swing action I’ve been working on attaining since last year!
The takeaway from Day 1?
That you can train and maintain a very solid swing action even when you can’t hit balls or play, by simply doing your “One Major Move” and the various “One Exercise” drills from the video series – look at my form on the 1st day back after 5 months off!
