It is very clear the best way to improve your rotational power for the golf swing is by swinging a club. With that said the weight room can expedite the process greatly. One key piece of equipment that most gyms have is the med ball.  And no not for Russian twists. I think even the Russians are pissed their name is attached to a very silly exercise, but that's a whole other blog post. For my golfers I use the med ball in almost every session. It’s a very easy way to work on rotational power and sequencing the entire body. Not to...

“You need to take big steps and reach!” NOOO I’m sure we have all been told this. And maybe this could help some, but most of the time it will result in a slower start. Foot placement is HUGE in order to accelerate quickly. I can’t stress that enough. So many athletes put themselves in a poor position due to their foot placement. What do I mean by “foot placement.” I’m glad you asked.  During the initial movement, the back leg will make come forward. Eventually that leg will start to come back down towards the ground. When I say “foot...
