I mentioned that I was giving the “One Exercise” to various people to test out so see if it helped their personal issues with building a fully MCS golf swing, and I am pleased say that my prediction has borne out.
Whatever the issue is, if you perform the “One Exercise” for either the back swing or down swing, you will see a very quick and dramatic increase in mechanical performance, and I can’t wait for you all who’ve reserved the coming “EMCS2 – The Follow Up”video to try it and see for yourselves.
You may have heard some things regarding the tendency of Modern Golf Swingersto do what I call “losing one’s level,” which is also called the “harpoon” by some and which is actually praised in modern analysis.
Even worse, you will hear some analysts calling this losing of one’s level on the down swing (where the head precipitously drops) as “getting ready to jump” at the impact stage, which is absurd – if you lose your level on the down swing and don’t react to it before impact, you’ll hit the ground about a foot behind the ball.
The first time I heard or saw this was when the late Mike Dunaway came out with his last video, and although I never watched it, you don’t have to have watched it to grasp the theory.
I have made reference to the stable swing point being like balanced car tires – they will turn purely around the axis but if they’re off-balanced, you’ll get vibration something fierce when you go above a certain speed.
I posted yesterday about the first of the fulcrum/lever aspects of the mechanically-correct golf swing, the C7 and the shoulder assembly.
It’s the most important one, as it is the one that harnesses all of the leverage potential stored in your body mass.
Additionally for those who might ask “but what about the left or leading arm as a lever?” I would say, “that is absolutely correct – and the leading arm as a lever is directly connected to the leading shoulder, and that is powered by the same action as mentioned with the Kettle Bell example.”
Other than the universally proven fact in all types of sports that a stable head or position improves accuracy and precision where they are needed (would you rather throw a ball at a target while standing still or on the back of a moving truck?).
Below you’ll see a gif. of some positions that jumped out at me while I was making stills for the upcoming video, and remember that these are static pictures of me in motion, and are not positions that I’ve tried to “hit.”
I get a lot of people saying, “It’s very confusing to talk about the C7 being the swing point,” but the plain and simple issue is that if you’re struggling with stability in the pivot, then you have to make yourself understand it.
When the old instruction saw went “don’t move your head,” this is what they were talking about, whether they knew it or not – likely it was something that was instinctual to the more natural swingers, but it doesn’t mean you can’t understand it because there was a time I myself didn’t get it.
