  1. Awesome … can’t wait. Good stuff. The bridge workouts are helping a lot. As well as the lateral strenghening with the band.

    I still maintain the rotational part is a simulated pivot. The lateral part is the takeaway: Do you agree?

  3. Hi Michael,
    The rotational part is definitely a simulated pivot. Coming soon is a video series on the “pivot” and the muscles essential to this pivot based on kinesiology and EMG testing of high level players. Furthermore, the lateral leap is to teach/test control during the backswing and downswing. The lateral portion is less about the actual jump and more about the eccentric control of the landing. Sometimes I work the ‘accelerators’ of the swing and sometimes I work the ‘brakes.’ The leap is about the ‘brakes.’

  4. Dear Jeremy ,I don’ t dispute the interest of this exercise for stengthening and balance purposes .But for a exp

    • Hi Raymond,
      Read the description and watch the video again. Bear with me on the explanation. Even though the exercise shows lateral jumping, the ultimate goal of the exercise is to LIMIT lateral movement on the landing just as you mention in your question. I agree completely with you and Ben Hogan… we should absolutely limit our lateral motion in the golf swing. Having said that, when we exercise we have to stress that control with even more difficult circumstances like jumping. This exercise isn’t about the jump… It’s about the landing and how well we control ourselves laterally when we land. So I have to disagree with you… the exercise is for every golfer, especially the experienced golfer. If you learn to stick the landing and control yourself on one leg with this exercise you’ll have much less of an issue during your golf swing. Don’t pass this exercise up!
