the vice? dude, it’s more than a vice, it’s a big time addiction.
I wish I was smarter so I could understand what the hell Cressey was saying in that newsletter.
In my experience, lifting explosively is the shit. I’m currently hitting the ball farther than ever, I blame it on doing snatches and cleans.
Deadlifts. They are key. It trains the grip strength like no other, and talk about strengthening “the core”
This might not be the best stuff to do (anyone want to chime in on what is?), but it’s worked well for me.[/quote]
I worked with a couple of golfers here in Hawaii. They all said the full contact twist seemed to help keep their swing “together.” One teaching pro I worked with was very adamant about the twist, deadlifts, and powercleans. It actually screwed up his game for a while because he had to readjust to hitting farther (he gained one club lengthwith his irons). A highschooler I worked with said that he felt skipping rope helped with his touch around the greens. I think it may have been that his cardiovascular conditioning was so poor that anything we did helped him. Of course, the eye-hand-foot coordination may have helped him.
