Impact - At Home Training

Impact is one of the easier skills to practice at home. It can be a little boring, so it is important to train frequently but for a short duration. Make sure to have a good source of feedback such as a mirror or video camera to make sure what you think you're doing is actually what you want to do.

00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:04,000
This drill video is impact practice at home.

00:00:04,000 --> 00:00:07,000
So the easiest ways to practice impact

00:00:07,000 --> 00:00:12,000
are going to be either with the door jam or yoga block

00:00:12,000 --> 00:00:14,000
or with the impact fix.

00:00:14,000 --> 00:00:18,000
Basically, practicing the visual and all the little details

00:00:18,000 --> 00:00:21,000
of what it's going to be like from going from set up to impact.

00:00:21,000 --> 00:00:25,000
What is different at impact than it was it set up?

00:00:25,000 --> 00:00:28,000
The answer is a lot, pretty much everything is different,

00:00:28,000 --> 00:00:33,000
but focusing on the one or two things that are most critical for your success

00:00:33,000 --> 00:00:36,000
will help make it that much easier when you're practicing on the range.

00:00:36,000 --> 00:00:39,000
Now, just like with all the at home,

00:00:39,000 --> 00:00:43,000
I recommend doing it in multiple short bursts

00:00:43,000 --> 00:00:47,000
instead of doing long drawn out repetitions.

00:00:47,000 --> 00:00:52,000
So doing ten or so at a time, every time you go to the bathroom,

00:00:52,000 --> 00:00:55,000
every time you go to the kitchen,

00:00:55,000 --> 00:01:00,000
there are great times for you to just reinforce what you're trying to train.

00:01:00,000 --> 00:01:04,000
Takes about a minute, but gives kind of refocuses

00:01:04,000 --> 00:01:07,000
or gets your brain paying attention to this

00:01:07,000 --> 00:01:11,000
and allows it to kind of process it before the next time you go to practice.

00:01:11,000 --> 00:01:13,000
So, highly recommend it.

00:01:13,000 --> 00:01:16,000
So if you're doing the door jam here,

00:01:16,000 --> 00:01:20,000
I've got the chair to represent the door jam I can practice.

00:01:20,000 --> 00:01:23,000
Here's my setup position with my wrists here.

00:01:23,000 --> 00:01:26,000
I got very little pressure when I go to push.

00:01:26,000 --> 00:01:27,000
I feel it all in my shoulder.

00:01:27,000 --> 00:01:32,000
I know with impact, I want to feel it more in my core and in my legs.

00:01:32,000 --> 00:01:34,000
So I'm going to practice getting in that good impact position

00:01:34,000 --> 00:01:40,000
and kind of push with my arms as my body is pulling slightly away.

00:01:40,000 --> 00:01:45,000
So as my body is lifting, my arm is pushing down.

00:01:45,000 --> 00:01:49,000
The other thing I can do is I can practice the impact fix

00:01:49,000 --> 00:01:53,000
so I can get set up and I can go from setup to impact.

00:01:53,000 --> 00:01:56,000
Set up to impact.

00:01:56,000 --> 00:02:02,000
Set up to impact, hold there for a second, just kind of fine tune it, adjust it,

00:02:02,000 --> 00:02:08,000
go back to setup, go back to impact and just kind of get used to paying attention

00:02:08,000 --> 00:02:14,000
to where, how does it look when I get in the good impact position?

00:02:14,000 --> 00:02:16,000
What spaces am I taking up?

00:02:16,000 --> 00:02:21,000
So I may be used to too, okay, my normal impact is kind of somewhere around here.

00:02:21,000 --> 00:02:26,000
But when I do this little impact drill, the handle is way out in front like so.

00:02:26,000 --> 00:02:31,000
So now I want to start getting used to coming in with that handle a little bit more out in front.

00:02:31,000 --> 00:02:35,000
So it just gives you opportunities to focus on the key differences.

00:02:35,000 --> 00:02:39,000
The movements are going to be a little bit more critical for training at home than these positions.

00:02:39,000 --> 00:02:42,000
But I still love training positions at home.

00:02:42,000 --> 00:02:45,000
Here are a couple easy ways that you can work on impact.
