The 7 Components to developing a more powerful and accurate golf swing!
1. GOLF FITNESS EVALUATION
This short but valuable fitness screen, designed by the Titalist Performance Institute, gives us the ability to build a program based on every clients individual needs. The screen consists of 13 exercises that can show inherent weaknesses ultimately contributing to poor movement patterns.
2. GLUTE ACTIVATION
The GLUTE is King when it comes to stability and power. Getting the glute to fire and function properly is one of our primary goals with all athletes.
Flexibility is a key component in developing a good golf swing. When major muscle groups can move through a normal movement pattern it can greatly enhance the ability to rotate. This will limit the number of swing flaws and loss of posture.
We use a variety of techniques to improve flexibility;
Deep tissue Massage
Active Release Technique (ART)
Active Isolated Stretching (AIS)
Movement Prep Exercises
4. STABILIY AND BALANCE
Improving stability and balance can greatly enhance how a golfer addresses the ball, and how well they can maintain proper alignment throughout the golf swing. We use a variety of equipment that constantly challenge body in all planes of motion increasing joint stability and overall core development.
5. KINIMATIC SEQUENCE
This is the proper unwinding of the hips, torso, arms, and club during downswing to produce the most efficient amount of power.
Power in the downswing is initiated from the ground up. With proper pressure from the feet and legs into the ground you can create a stable foundation so that you can first accelerate, then quickly decelerate the hips during the downswing. When the hip decelerates the torso can then speed up, when the torso decelerates the arms can speed up. Finally when the arms decelerate near impact the club speeds up.
Once the foundation and skills have been improved now we can begin to make the body stronger and improve movement patterns by adding more resistance.
7. EXPLOSIVE POWER
Finally we begin to introduce SPEED.
Here we begin to move greater loads of resistance in an explosive but controlled movement pattern.
