Early extension? Load properly!

It’s a very common issue to see someone explode toward the ball with their hips, often in an effort to get more distance. However, pushing off the ground is an integral part of maximizing your power! What’s the trick? The proper loading of weight and the corresponding push off the ground is the secret: When you make the transition into the downswing, make sure the lead shoulder doesn’t pop immediately up. Additionally, keeping a feeling of the shoulders staying a bit closed while the arms swing down a bit is another piece of the puzzle. Once you nail this part of the swing, go ahead and push off the ground all you like! You’ll be in position to do it properly. Reach out to me on Skillest for more information.
