A weird warmup that works...

2 posts in this topic

Let me first say that I have a fast swing and I enjoy hitting the ball far, and I've recently found a swing that really makes it smooth and quick.  But the way I warmup might be odd, I don't think I've really seen many people do what I do.  It starts normal in that I stretch my arms and legs, then go to arm circles, and make sure all my joints are properly cracked.  Then I'll take 2 clubs and make very slow swings focusing on the muscles and warming them to the swing.  Then when I feel a little looser, this is when I take it up 200% full throttle.  I'll take my driver on a hill, with the club head hovering over the ground and swing out of my shoes.  I really want to focus during this practice on making very fast swings.  The reason I do this, is to get my muscles going and let myself know how fast I can swing.  I'm only taking a few swings with it, NOT hitting balls.  And when I go back to my normal swing, I go to my rhythm and tempo and hit balls, and my swing feels loose and fast.  The other reason I like it, is that my fault right now is too much lower body on the down swing, and this helps me get my arms through.

Any thoughts?

I would never do that (the 200% swing) but if you're playing off 2 then do what works for you.  I tend to just stretch and get blood flowing to my legs, stretch shoulders etc.  Make sure my torso and hips are good to turn.

I've taken a few things from Jiminez's routine including the side to side knee dance.

    • 14- way Carry Bags?
      I had an ogio 14 way carry bag and hated it after one frustrating round I gave it away. 
    • XE1 Wedge: Have you tried it?
      It may be great but at what cost?  Not willing to lose my dignity to possibly save a shot or two.  Plus I love my jaws wedges with the md grooves. Straight ?. 
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Well said Mr.  Desmond the funny thing in all this is that somehow poor people support Trump against their own best interest. And call bernie a communist despite not really knowing what that or socialism is or the difference between the two. 
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Bernie says the system is rigged - stats since the 1980's prove that a great amount of wealth has shifted towards a very small percentage of people. Does that not concern you?  Walmart employs people with such small wages that their people are on welfare, so the argument goes that Walmart is a huge beneficiary of living off the government tit. As to Bernie's war against financial institutions, can you doubt that Wall St helped out the 2007 Depression? Completely irresponsible behavior based on greed. Hedge fund managers get capital gains rate on their compensation? Ridiculous. How many people do you know make over $10M on ordinary income? That is where he proposes a 52% tax that become 73% when one adds SS and Single Payer taxes, and then you have the state income tax, so it would get high. And it is too high, but he would not get that through Congress unless we truly had a revolution and all the Dems came out to vote for the revolution. If all Dems vote, Pubs lose except in areas so gerryrmandered that the one party it favors will always win. Bernie on guns? He won't take away guns, it's not in his record. Bernie is not snake oil -- Bernie and Trump are here because of the last 30 years of growing inequity, political correctness and divisiveness. If we do not address it with traditional politics, then eventually people will wake up and vote their interests, which would be Sanders  or a similar politician. It is time for change, the last 30 years have been tough on all levels of the lower and middle classes while the upper class have the "let them eat cake" attitude. That only takes one so far before people vote for big change. I asked a 20 something the other night who she likes, Trump, Cruz, Sanders, Clinton - I said Clinton would work with the other side, Bernie wants a pipedream - she said "I want Bernie." I just said if you want Bernie, you better get out the vote because it will take a lot of young people to do it. Before I am "labeled" again, I don't think any candidates in either party are to my liking. But I think we do need incremental change ... now to reverse some of the last 30 years and renew the American Dream -- it should be for all, not 1%.
    • Anyone enjoying the drink tonight?
      Hopslam last night, just released by Bells.  Best beer in a can, which used to only be in a bottle.
