Wipe With Head Awareness

It is common to develop a big of a forward lunge when working on the wipe movement. Placing an object outside your lead ear (about in line with your lead shoulder) will help make you aware of your upper body position and make your wipe training more effective.

Playlists: Train Your Release, Stop Lunging Forward

This drill is wiped with head awareness.

00:00:03,000 --> 00:00:11,000
So when you're doing these wipe drills, it's a very common tendency for as you're trying

00:00:11,000 --> 00:00:14,000
to get that elbow to work a little bit more in front of your body, you're trying to get

00:00:14,000 --> 00:00:19,000
the club to work a little bit more horizontally for the upper body to want to start

00:00:19,000 --> 00:00:21,000
lunging towards the target.

00:00:21,000 --> 00:00:27,000
So you can take the concept of the wall off the left ear and create a little visual feedback

00:00:27,000 --> 00:00:28,000

00:00:28,000 --> 00:00:32,000
So I've just got a foam noodle kind of going over an alignment rod.

00:00:32,000 --> 00:00:37,000
You can use a shaft in the ground or just an alignment stick to give you kind of a visual

00:00:37,000 --> 00:00:42,000
and spatial awareness as to where you are in space as you make these moves.

00:00:42,000 --> 00:00:49,000
So then I'm going to get set up and now whether I'm doing kind of a supported wipe

00:00:49,000 --> 00:00:56,000
movement or I'm doing a pump drill to kind of feel that wipe movement.

00:00:56,000 --> 00:01:01,000
This will just give me a little bit of feedback to make sure that I'm not lunging too

00:01:01,000 --> 00:01:03,000
much with my upper body.

00:01:03,000 --> 00:01:08,000
Now I would put this roughly even with your shoulder not directly on your head because

00:01:08,000 --> 00:01:12,000
there will naturally be a little bit of a forward shift during transition.

00:01:12,000 --> 00:01:18,000
So I've got this just outside my shoulder kind of just like so that allows me to have

00:01:18,000 --> 00:01:23,000
just a little bit of shift but then get into that good bracing movement.

00:01:23,000 --> 00:01:28,000
And that's one of the other reasons why I like this is it helps blend the white movement

00:01:28,000 --> 00:01:33,000
into the side bend and bracing movement and those two kind of should play off of each

00:01:33,000 --> 00:01:34,000

00:01:34,000 --> 00:01:38,000
So you can use this with a variety of the different drills from the supported wipe to the

00:01:38,000 --> 00:01:45,000
nine to three focusing on the wipe to the aggressive wipe or any of the other kind of

00:01:45,000 --> 00:01:48,000
really sterile concepts.

00:01:48,000 --> 00:01:55,000
So putting the foam noodle in line with about your left shoulder just slightly ahead of

00:01:55,000 --> 00:02:00,000
the head that will make it so that when you make that wipe movement you can focus on

00:02:00,000 --> 00:02:04,000
where your upper body is in space and that'll help you if you're turning this wipe into

00:02:04,000 --> 00:02:07,000
more of a forward lunge.

00:02:07,000 --> 00:02:13,000
So elbow moves in front connected to what the body is doing and becomes a good wipe with

00:02:13,000 --> 00:02:14,000
a brace.
