Professional golfers use this exercise to increase their clubhead speed.
This is a lateral jump to vertical to balance.
This exercise trains your gluteal muscles to store and recover elastic energy to generate force while also training your body to break that force and plant it into the ground.
The reason we want to do that is to create a REACTION FORCE (Newton’s 3rd Law).
Professional golfers take that reaction force and turn it into a pulse wave that moves up the leg, through a stiffened core, up to the shoulders and down the arms to the club.
This is how you turn your body into a controlled whip and generate the most clubhead speed.
Perform 1-3 sets of 6-10 reps.
Rest 2-3 minutes between sets to make sure you replenish your creatine phosphate.
If you don’t replenish your creatine phosphate your body will switch to using glycogen to create ATP, which is a different energy system and not the one we want to train and develop for golf.
By byproduct of that metabolism is lactic acid, which makes you legs burn.
So if your legs begin to burn, rest longer.
In good health,
