Speaker 1: What's up everybody? Tyler Parsons here.
Today I want to look at a new segment that I'm going to start, we're going to add this to all of the other helpful things that I'm hopefully posting for you, but we want to look at how to prime the muscles for the golf swing.
What I mean by that is we can sometimes get caught up in some different things we do in the gym, you know you look at certain exercises as moving, bicep curl one way, but yet whenever we look at something as complex as a golf swing we have to be able to use them to our advantage, making sure that they're flexible enough, have the range of motion but all working in sync together.
I think that's overlooked, so first installment of this segment, we're going to look at how to prime the muscles, the body, sync it together, make you more powerful, more explosive, reduce an injury, and hit some big drives off the tee.
We have our cable cross machine, okay? Extremely helpful.
You can do this with bands if you're wanting to this at home.
I've got a little bit of weight loaded up, but what we want to look at is the sequencing, but more importantly what's engaging along the way.
That's one of the tricky parts for me whenever a lot of you send me some different videos I can't really tell when it's slowed down what's engaging, what's functioning correctly, what's not.
We want to get set up in this golf posture.
You can see I have my hand up high, this is going to mimic that swing.
I'm nice and loaded and I want to open up and pull.
There's that sequencing, and now I'm having to engage.
My arm is out of this, what I'm trying to do is use the abs and obliques to really help stabilize, pull, we can see that create a nice big lag, I'm set, I can then fire through.
It's not necessarily about the weight.
It's going to be engaging.
Priming those muscles.
I'm feeling a big huge strain in through here, this is what I feel whenever I hit, so whenever I'm hitting those big drives, I'm in, I'm exploding through this side, really trying to drive off my right into my left.
We can look at what the feet are going to be doing later on, but we really want to try to balance this out and go down and through there you can see not a lot of weight that we're really moving around, okay? If it's too heaving, we're not going to be doing it correctly.
Fire that around, switch and do the other side.
No you're not going to be hitting left handed, but we know we want to keep that body balanced, again it's about reducing the risk of injury, getting that body as symmetric as we can, firing, turning you into a machine so that you can go out there, bomb those monster drives.
