On Leverage & The 3 Levers

As I always do, I’m going to post little snippets or previews to the work I’ve gotten done on the upcoming “EMCS2 – The Follow Up” video, and today’s offering is on the nature of Leverage and the “3 Levers” concept of a mechanically-correct golf swing.

The “One Exercise” Field Testing – Success

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.

“Losing One’s Level” Is Not A Good Thing

You may have heard some things regarding the tendency of Modern Golf Swingers to 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.

Here Is Some “String Theory” For You

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.

Leverage Over Muscle Power – Part II

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 askĀ “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.”

It’s All About Using Leverage Over Muscle Power – Part I

I would ask someone, “Could you throw someone who weights 220 lbs or has a mass of 100 kg?”

The answer would be, “I don’t think I could, in fact I couldn’t even lift someone that size, let alone throw them…”

Now, if you asked a judo expert the same question, whatever their size, you’d get a different answer – they might not know exactly how far, but if you asked Continue reading

Have You Noticed Something About The “One Major Move” Gif?

I don’t know if anyone has noticed the very interesting thing about the “One Major Move” gif. or the “Machine Model,” as I call it.

It’s not something that will jump out at you, but once you notice it, you really can’t “unsee” it.

The Swing Point Is The C7

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.
