Tyler Parsons: Hey everyone, Tyler Parsons with parsonsgolfperformance.com.
Back today again with a couple different variations of the things that help you get better.
Not necessarily a new exercise for a lot of you but we're going to look at doing some chops and lifts and even some horizontal chops and some different variations.
What we start to look at whenever we're wanting to produce more speed and power, again is we have to be able to stabilize.
Get the body to function and work properly before we add to it.
One of the best ways to do that is either with a cable cross or with a band.
We can drop down into a half kneeling lunge so that I'm having to stabilize and I'm having to brace and use this lower body and then taking our weight nice and smooth with that upper body.
Not allowing a bunch of lateral but nice and still down and across.
Getting those abs, obliques, extending using that chest and rotating through.
That'll be with a lighter weight.
Again, that's allowing us to stabilize.
Getting the body used to what we're doing.
Once we establish that we're at a good point with that, what I love to have my players do is get set into that golf posture.
Go on and get loaded.
Now we're trying to create power.
Really allowing that body to go hard.
Really work on here more that sequence.
Allow those hips to go.
Still bracing but getting into this position.
Firing through and throwing that weight down, up whatever variation.
You feel like that weight stack is going to explode through if you're using the cable.
If you're using a band, really trying to feel as much resistance as we can.
Lot of different variations again.
We can go using a bar.
We can use the rope.
You can use an individual handle.
We can go in this half kneel.
Do that same thing so that we're loading with the upper body.
We get that nice full rotation.
That's what it's going to come down to is again, learning how to get certain body parts to do their part and stabilized or knowing they need to fire but looking at a lot of rotation.
Can I brace it? Can I get this to move? Can I get this to move? One of the simplest tests we can do is go from our golf posture, are we able to disassociate the two pieces.
If not this will be hard for us to do but if we can get here, nice and loaded, and fire and half kneel, we're locking up that lower body so it's forcing us to.
Then we can also go standing where I really try and let everything turn with and explode.
It's going to be great for you to help hammer out any deficiencies.
I love having players again go through and do those nice slow controlled isolated turns to where we're really working on form and then using that entire body to create more speed, power, force and really get a feel for that.
Check back again and often.
I've got more tips coming.
