Dear Paul ,
On your previous recommendation ,I bought the ULTIMATE SWING TRAINER and train three times a week with the rubber tubing .
To make the exercises more strenuous, I use two rubber tubings at the time (If you are a “STAKHANOVIST ,you can go up to three !).Apart from the exercises shown by Mike BAUMAN in his booklet (5 Exercises ) ,I also do the one you demonstrate .
What’s important is to perform the turns as fast as you can in 10 second intervals , with one minute rest in between ,in order to develop only the “Fast Twitch muscle fibers “which are the ones needed to give speed to the golf swing ,not the “Slow “ones .
JEREMY KLINHAMER has given on your site a fine instruction Video on the benefits of INTERVAL TRAINING .These speed exercises are very much beneficial to the golf method you teach with the fast hip rotation on the left leg during the throughswing .
Thank you for you very effective teaching .
Paul – Ben Hogan in the classic Five Steps book emphasized a flat wrist at the top and a flat or even bowed wrist at impact. You have not, to my knowledge (I have had a lesson with you and have followed the tips for two years) made a comment or a tip about that. Do you agree? It seems your method is consistent with that concept.
I did 2 tips on these 2 things.
In no way should your wrist be flat at the top. Hogan’s was cupped. Yours should be cupped too. This cupping is doe to holding the club in a 2 knuckle grip position. If you hold the club this way there should be a slight cupping at the top.
Cupped or Flat: http://ignitiongolf.com/top-backswing-cupped-flat
The bowing of the wrist at impact occurs because impact is not the widest point of the arc. Approx. 2 feet after with irons and 3 feet after with woods is the widest point. This means the lead wrist will still be bowed at impact.

I am playing pretty well following your teaching but trying to get a little more power by turning my
hip quicker with the Driver I have a tendency to hit a straight block to the right. When I slow it down
I tend to hit it straight or have a slight draw. My question is can you move your hips too fast ?
Yes, you can move your hips too fast. If you do you hit pushes or push fades to the right. Oh, you said that. Guess what? You are driving them too hard. Watching the ball tells you the whole story. When you see this shot sow down. You can also roll the wrists way early and manually hook about 2 shots. Then drive your legs as hard as you can. Then see what happens. Let me know.

Watching the PGA last week, I see some of the players (Tiger) really pushing hard with the lead leg to get leverage against the ground as the swing through impact. I was wondering if some of that is going on with your technique as the lead leg straightens?
If so, what should we be feeling and any specific drills to get more leverage.
This depends if this is your downswing trigger. I am gripping the ground with my right big toe and pushing hard in a circle. I did a tip on it here:

This driving action is achieve through constantly working on it. I have showed my favorite drill and many variations of it for this exact purpose. If you really want it you will be constantly be doing the drills below. There are no short cuts just the constant desire to go harder and harder until you are good at it and have the fluidity of a better player. Keep in mind the players on tour started as kids. They have done this for many, many years because they did not have the ability to pull the club down with the arms. You did. So you need to play catch up. Keep the arms as weak as a childs and drive the legs harder than you ever have (don’t hurt yourself). Once you keep doing this it will feel normal. At first, it will feel out of control.

One follow up question. I know how much you talk about the circular motion powering the swing. I’m wondering how much “Up” movement with the legs there should be. Is it both around and up, or just the around? It sure looks like Tiger pushes up against the ground as he turns.
There is no up movement. There is circular. You are not Tiger.
