Band Resisted Backswing Sway

This is another great drill for the feel player. Take a band and set it up off to your right so that it is pulling your hips to the right. Take some backswings making sure that the band does not pull you more to the right.

00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:04,000
This drill is band-resisted backswing and it helps with overcoming the sway pattern.

00:00:05,000 --> 00:00:08,000
So what you can do is you can take an elastic or a

00:00:09,000 --> 00:00:12,000
training band and you can either if you're doing this at home

00:00:12,000 --> 00:00:17,000
It's very easy you just stick it in the door or attach it to something very sturdy. If you're doing this on the range

00:00:17,000 --> 00:00:20,000
You want to take a shaft and stick it into the ground

00:00:20,000 --> 00:00:24,000
far enough so that you have plenty of leverage if you can't get it into the ground far enough

00:00:24,000 --> 00:00:26,000
That you can pull away comfortably

00:00:27,000 --> 00:00:32,000
Then it's just not worth the risk but what you want to do is have the line of pull

00:00:33,000 --> 00:00:35,000
at about

00:00:36,000 --> 00:00:38,000
Mid-thier just above your knee and

00:00:38,000 --> 00:00:45,000
Then what will happen is as you make your backswing the band is gonna want to pull me in the direction of my problem

00:00:45,000 --> 00:00:50,000
So it's gonna pull me into my sway just like so it's gonna pull my pelvis and

00:00:51,000 --> 00:00:53,000
And my weight to the outside of my foot

00:00:53,000 --> 00:00:57,000
So I'm gonna have to teach my body how to overcome that

00:00:57,000 --> 00:01:03,000
So I'm gonna practice making backswings while keeping my weight on the inside and not letting my knee drift

00:01:03,000 --> 00:01:04,000

00:01:04,000 --> 00:01:06,000
This is especially good for a feel learner

00:01:07,000 --> 00:01:14,000
Because this is gonna give you a strong sensation as to what it's like to actually load into the hip as opposed to shifting away from it

00:01:14,000 --> 00:01:20,000
So this is band resistance band resisted sway and it will provide a real strong

00:01:20,000 --> 00:01:23,000
sensation for helping you overcome that sway pattern
