I'm Tyler Parsons with Parsonsgolfperformance.com, and today we're going to be talking about the braking system.
Where this becomes important for golf is that your body is only going to let you accelerate through as fast as you're capable of braking, slowing down, and stopping.
What we have to do is train that braking system to basically get more, and more, and more faster, faster, and better so that we can continue to produce speed, okay? If we're looking at, say, a bicep to where we curl, we've got to have that antagonist muscle in that tricep even out so that we can do things quickly.
One of the really good exercises is just a chop to where we can turn and get this loaded up and we have to fire, stay nice and level, and turn through so that we're hitting those obliques.
We're really rotating through, and whenever you're getting better and want to up weight, we go faster with a nice smooth rotation and obviously we flipped it and we go to the other side so that we're working here as well as here.
Now one of the big keys, again, is going to be the speed.
If I was just sitting here going nice and smooth, doing it, yes we're going to be working that muscle but we're not really training it for what we're going to be using it for.
We're going to be using it for our speed.
We've got it turned and firing down and through, we're going nice and hard.
Here, I'd actually want to increase that weight, not that it's slowing me down, but so as I turn I really have to fire, engage, pull, then hold.
Go through, do six to eight, flip and go to your other side.
The additional added benefit is as we're going through and you're sitting there just chopping away, you're going to feel that heart rate go up and up.
We're going to be getting that cardio aspect, as well as improving on evening everything out and producing power.
