I’ve Got Something Special For WAX Nation – Closing In On A Million Views As Well!

Before I address today’s topics, I took a look at my site metrics yesterday and was pleased and gratified to see that WAX Golf has passed the 900,000 views mark and will pass One Million Views in the next few weeks!**

** In fact, I would have well over 1 Million views already for WAX Golf but I had it on a different server than the WordPress server for about 4 months in the first year, which views aren’t recorded by my current server.

The Great News – You Can “Push/Throw” Or “Pull” Your Swing All You Want

I’m sure that, to many people who are dominant in one side or the other, it has been a little disconcerting to read my thoughts on the optimal swing requiring both sides of the body.

Putting Puzzles Together & Sundry Thoughts

I’ve been on the shelf for swinging for nearly a week now, due to the cracked or badly bruised ribs I incurred on one of my cough syncope falls.

I have been limited to easy swinging, just practicing the setup, making sure of the position and then making the easy motions at around 40-50% – hard enough to engage all of the muscles but easy enough not to strain the ribs.

Leading Side Leverage = Pulley/Winch/Gears

Because of the nature of the difference between the body and actual machines, it’s not a perfect analogy, but you can consider this – when used properly, the leading side produces leverage for the down swing that is akin to a pulley or winch, which emulates the gear action of a machine.

Mike Dunaway’s Leverage

If you think think that being a right-dominant swinger doesn’t require you to use the left or leading side equally, think again.

I took a super slo mo of the Mike Dunaway “stick-man” swing to show his down swing transition and the “drop” that he made into the “3 O’Clock” position.

Dunaway’s Action WAS Right-Dominant BUT Also Used Leading Side Leverage

Dunaway’s Action WAS Right-Dominant BUT Also Used Leading Side Leverage..

That much should be pretty self-evident if you think about it, but it’s also something that can be overlooked.

Why The Tighter Pivot Increases Power

I’ve been going over the mechanics, not content to merely say, “based on what I’ve been researching, the tighter pivot gives you increased power.”

It’s nice to know, but the reasons for this would be helpful to those struggling with issues that they might not think has to do with a pivot that’s less than the tightest they can make it.

It Took A Year To Transform “Feel” To “Real” On The Tight Pivot

I could consider the 2018 season to have been a complete waste of time if I went by my posting from December of last year where I said I’d found my “leverage niche.”¬†using the SwingRite training tool in my off-time.

The Tigher Pivot Was Staring Me In The Face For Years

First of all, I would like to make it very clear to anyone who has been reading my postings the past couple of weeks – this is pretty advanced stuff.

I had an email conversation with a gentleman just on the past weekend, and we correspond quite a bit on the swing, where he suggested that my focus on the right side of the swing might cause people to turn early or over-rotate, and I agreed, with one caveat:

“Pushing The Down Swing” Is The Secret To The Tighter Pivot

OK, WAX Nation – time to end the impression that there is anything mysterious about what I’ve been discussing this week.

The truth of it is that everything I’ve been looking at and commenting on, is already in the MCS model – I was just getting the “aha”¬†this past week of exactly why the shorter back swing for me is going to be much more powerful than anything I’ve done in the past with my way-past-parallel position at the top.
