I haven’t written about the Trumpster in quite some time, but today is one of those days where I’m going to let my hair down (pretending I have some).
If you take a look at Trump’s golf swing, you’ll note that for a man of any age, it’s a work of art, even with a bit of a belly and a decent-sized bee-hind.
No, it’s not the Art of the Deal. It’s the Art of the Donald Trump Swing.
It’s the use of coiling, spiraling energy from the bottoms of your feet through the ankles, knees, hips, spine and torso, all the way to the top of the head, exiting out the hands.
This spiraling movement is the exact opposite of what is done in the weight room to get bigger, stronger and faster. In the weight room you are taught to do exercises that tighten and shorten your muscles, which is a bad idea if you want to maximize the intrinsic power of the spiraling motion.
There is no way that a regimen of deadlifts, squats and bench pressing will translate to a better golf swing, a better baseball swing or the throwing of a ball. You need only look at Tiger Woods, whose golf swing was never better when he was a younger, leaner man. All the bulk he added did not help him drive the ball further. Not only that, I believe it invited a host of unwanted injuries.
In golf you stand perfectly still, consciously or unconsciously drawing energy from the ground as you ready yourself to strike the ball. You go backwards before you go forward… then… WHAMMO. You knock the ball out of sight.
This type of power cannot be amplified or duplicated with push-pull exercises that isolate or combine various muscle groups.
But it most certainly can kick into high gear when you learn to stand perfectly still and make contact with the spiraling tissues of your body.
Yessir, that’s a fact, and it’s what I teach in my Power Postures course.
Want a more forceful golf swing? Want to hit or throw any type of ball (all spiraling motions) harder and further – then take a serious look at what I have to offer.
It will change your life and your game for the BETTER.
Kick ass – take names.
