You have lined up to go to your TARGET, you have confirmed your ball position, your distance to ball, your grip and your club face relationship, and now you are ready. THEN YOU STARE AT THE BALL AND TRY TO HIT IT?? What happened to your target? You need a system and you need it now! We will give you your “means by which” you will get your golf ball from where it lies, into the flight plan that will take it to where you want it to go!

This series is specifically about facilitating the engage- ment of a kinetic chain. Throwing an object, throwing a punch, etc., is a timed sequence of movements – or in other words: a kinetic chain. The proper sequence is demonstrated in extremis by Bryson DeChambreau. ”I jump up, and then I pull”.
A Centered And Catapulting Throw
To remove the restriction of the lower body in the back- swing do the feet-together drill; this is really important. Place your feet next to each other, the arches touching, forming a single ‘suction cup’; keep your knees together, no ‘Elvis Presley’. Feel very solid contact with the ground, feel ’glued’ to the ground with your feet. Then heave your arm club unit towards the trail side. Immediately to keep balance your rear will swivel into the opposite direction, ‘facing’ the target. If not, you will lose your balance.
Rise And Heave, Fall And Throw
Imagine heaving an axe and letting it fall into the stem of a tree. Upon heaving the axe back you will notice that your knees stay above your feet and the rear will immediately move in the opposite direction. Both legs will extend, you will rise up, and your head will go up – ”I jump up”. Then you let the axe fall and the movements will reverse. When you let the axe fall, you go to the ground, the head goes down, the knees flex – ”I pull”. Also see: the axe drill. Nothing about this needs to be learned. But it needs to be allowed to happen in a proper golf swing.
In this week’s golf exercise we will be addressing the pectoral muscles and a little bit of the triceps and deltoids. In addition, the glute bridge part of the exercise also help help the strength, hypotrophy and stability of lower core. The reason i’m addressing the upper body this week is to help with muscle tone and help with power can produce in the downswing of your golf swing. And the stability you build in the glute bridge position will help with posture and increase more balance for the golf swing.
When performing this workout, you are decreasing stress on your lower back when compared to a traditional bench press with the barbell or dumbbell. In addition, fat tends to collect in the lower region of the pectoral muscles in men as they age, so this exercise helps a lot in slowing down that process. Moreover, you will also reduce stress on the shoulders, ability to increase more weight and transfer that strength onto other chest exercises.
One con about this exercise is that if you have never done it before you will experience an awkward period trying to master it. This can lead to less optimal lifting mechanics.
How to Perform The Exercise:
- On flat floor with a yoga matt, lye down with dumbbells on each arm and bend your knees to get into the glute bridge position.
- Once the Gluteus Maximus is engaged, allow the the weight lean on your shoulder blades and keep your head on the ground.
- When ready, have your arms with the dumbbells extended and bend the elbows and low the arms to the floor.
- Press back up while the core braced in the glutes and abdomen. And then continue for 6-8 reps.
