Someone from Wax Nation (JS) asked some good questions in a comment on my posting about Mike Dunaway and his superb syncing of his 3 Levers.
I know that many people don’t wade into the comments on sites (which is understandable when you see the level of discourse at times in many sites’ comments sections, but a shame if you’re not following the discussions here at WAX), so I’ll just post on the subject as I think many people might wish to read the clarification.
I had discontinued the concept of the “MCS Swing Angle” after the “MCS – Perfect Pivot” video of last year, but I think it’s still a very good concept to keep in mind when you’re trying to swing with the MCS Golf Swing model and especially when performing the Kettle Bell “One Exercise.”
Jeff asked a very good question yesterday after viewing the “EMCS2 – The Follow Up” video that directly relates to this (the Kettle Bell “One Exercise”), and I’m going to put this concept back out there for public consumption, as my answer to him brought to mind the nature of the Swing Arc.
There are two “arcs” in the swing which must be understood if one is going to swing optimally, as they are not as you see in video or pictures – they are an optical illusion, actually.
The first arc is the vertical arc which, as I have combined two pictures that show the blurred arc of the club head before and post-impact, to show you what is meant by “descending,”“level” and “ascending” impacts.
