Sasho Two-Step

The Sasho Two-Step is a drill inspired by Dr. Sasho McKenzie. In this drill video, you'll experience how much pressure (or weight) you want in your front foot during transition. Many golfers try to push hard with the foot and end up pushing too long. A good benchmark is about the same amount of pressure is the same amount you'll feel when you land on a jogging step. Learn how to apply that concept in this drill.

00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:03,000
The drill is the Sasha Otoostep.

00:00:03,000 --> 00:00:08,000
So one of our favorite researchers is Dr. Sasha McKenzie, and he had a video that came out

00:00:08,000 --> 00:00:14,000
through body track, and I've been using his concept in drill pretty successfully with getting

00:00:14,000 --> 00:00:19,000
people to feel the proper amount of push into the lead leg.

00:00:19,000 --> 00:00:25,000
So we're going to walk through that, and to pay homage, we're going to call it the Sasha Otoostep.

00:00:25,000 --> 00:00:31,000
So basically what he showed was on average, you want to try to get about one and a half

00:00:31,000 --> 00:00:35,000
times your body weight going into that front foot fairly quickly.

00:00:35,000 --> 00:00:40,000
Now most students have no idea what one and a half times their body weight feels like.

00:00:40,000 --> 00:00:45,000
But if you've ever jogged, jogging is about one and a half times your body weight

00:00:45,000 --> 00:00:47,000
of force on each step.

00:00:47,000 --> 00:00:52,000
So I'll have people not really jog, but take a little step, and I want to make sure that

00:00:52,000 --> 00:00:56,000
the back foot comes off the ground before the front foot lands.

00:00:56,000 --> 00:01:04,000
So it's not just a walking movement, it's an actual little hop and land like in a jog.

00:01:04,000 --> 00:01:09,000
So that'll get you, all right, I kind of get a sense of how much my foot is pushing into

00:01:09,000 --> 00:01:10,000
the ground.

00:01:10,000 --> 00:01:14,000
Then what I do is I'm going to have that hop sideways.

00:01:14,000 --> 00:01:20,000
And you'll see as I land, I'm going to bend my knee just like if I was running, there's

00:01:20,000 --> 00:01:24,000
a little shock absorber movement of that knee landing.

00:01:24,000 --> 00:01:27,000
So I have a couple of videos of the single leg squatting jump.

00:01:27,000 --> 00:01:32,000
This is just a more dynamic and kind of precise amount of how much you're going to get

00:01:32,000 --> 00:01:33,000
into that leg.

00:01:33,000 --> 00:01:41,000
Then what I'll say is after you land into that leg, you're going to push and when you push,

00:01:41,000 --> 00:01:44,000
you're going to feel like your arms would extend.

00:01:44,000 --> 00:01:50,000
So then we'll take the golf stance, normal golf stance, and we'll try to do the step

00:01:50,000 --> 00:01:53,000

00:01:53,000 --> 00:01:55,000
Without letting the arms come down.

00:01:55,000 --> 00:02:00,000
So I'm just going to take a few and just kind of get used to stepping into that weed side.

00:02:00,000 --> 00:02:08,000
Now making sure that I'm not doing it by lunging my upper body, but that I'm just stepping

00:02:08,000 --> 00:02:12,000
into that side either staying centered or even getting a little bit behind if I'm

00:02:12,000 --> 00:02:15,000
training it more for the driver.

00:02:15,000 --> 00:02:18,000
Once I have that feeling, then I can take some swings.

00:02:18,000 --> 00:02:22,000
My goal is to make that step happen as early as possible.

00:02:22,000 --> 00:02:28,000
Really getting into that lead foot as I'm ending my backswing as the trigger to start my

00:02:28,000 --> 00:02:29,000

00:02:29,000 --> 00:02:31,000
So now I'm going to make some swings.

00:02:31,000 --> 00:02:37,000
We're basically getting into that step really early.

00:02:37,000 --> 00:02:41,000
And then from that step, I'm just going to let my arms extend.

00:02:41,000 --> 00:02:50,000
So get into that left side quickly and then get out of it.

00:02:50,000 --> 00:02:54,000
I'll work on trying to find the ground or take practice swings with the club brushes

00:02:54,000 --> 00:02:55,000
the ground.

00:02:55,000 --> 00:02:59,000
And then I'm going to make swings brushing the ground and letting the ball get in the

00:02:59,000 --> 00:03:00,000

00:03:00,000 --> 00:03:05,000
Okay, so now we're going to practice that step.

00:03:05,000 --> 00:03:09,000
Then we're going to get step swing.

00:03:09,000 --> 00:03:12,000
Now we're going to practice step swing ground.

00:03:12,000 --> 00:03:15,000
So brush the ground just like that.

00:03:15,000 --> 00:03:25,000
Now we're going to practice step swing ground and let the ball get in the way.

00:03:25,000 --> 00:03:30,000
So working on a little bit more quickness to that weight shift can help you with your

00:03:30,000 --> 00:03:33,000
sequencing, especially when it comes to the longer clubs.
