I have followed your program for some time now and the drives and 3’r wood are working well, though I still could wanted some more distance (the shots are now about 200meters).
My biggest problems is with my irons, I have lost a lot of distance here, for example with the 7iron which has got a reduced distance of 30-40 meters. I am not sure about what I am doing wrong but perhaps you have some tip ?
It is winter here in Norway so we are palying on simulators and I am also using mirrors at home as you have described in this video above.
Kind Regards John

To gain power you need to be powering the swing way faster with your lower body. I have a whole POWER section which you can find using the RED NAVIGATION bar above.
Also you should be doing these drills:

When one is in the follow through position, how much weight is on the right foot, if any? 10%? I ask because I have had chemotherapy that caused some neurapothy (sp?) in my feet. My balance is bad, but not what it used to be and I would like to use the right foot to help with the balance.

In the Follow Through you should have no more than 10% of your weight on this foot.

As with anything, if you cannot do something exactly right due to a physical issue you are going to have to figure out a workaround. In your case you may have to crunch this back toe to keep your balance. If so, watch out for fat shots and possibly hitting pushes due to having too much weight on this back foot through impact.

Excellent lesson ,again ,Paul,thank you .
I notice that in the photos of ancient golfers (HARRY VARDON ,TAYLOR and other old timers ) ,they “seem ” “to have their upper body moving forwards .I understand this to be incorrect.Though you have the full weight of the body on the front leg (Or better 90% )as yous mention ,you should remain straight or even lean a bit backwards ,isn’t it so?

You are in transition. Initially you may move forward to start the weight shifting but as you approach impact you better be behind it otherwise you will hit the back of the ball. As I keep saying firing the lower body is like hitting the accelerator on a car. As I drive the lower hard and fast my whole upper body hangs back. This does take a split second to get this firing to tilt the body back so when you see golfers move forward initially you also see them all move back behind it as they hit it. So work on firing the lower and the upper will hang back.

Paul, working on the drills for my new swing. Definitely been hitting with the arms all these years. My biggest issue is keeping the eyes tilted. Is this the best drill for this, just doing practice swings in the mirror. I have been doing a lot of swings at night in the living room and indoor range, since there is snow on the ground. 🙁 I do notice that when I keep the body tilted forward, or the eyes tilted I get that great sounding sweet spot hit. Problem is doing it again and again, Biggest problem I believe is trying to see the ball if it went straight, so I think I am touching the legs but to upright looking ahead and lifting out of the shot. If I keep the head down and watch the ground it’s nice. Any other suggestions besides mirror and forgetting about the ball. Thank you Randy
All you have to do it delay your reaction to watch the ball. Sounds like you are too exited to see the result. So follow this tip:
Topping: Watch for the Blur: https://ignitiongolf.com/watch-for-the-blur/
Are You Practicing Looking Early?: https://ignitiongolf.com/practice-looking-early/
Also, you can keep looking at the ball until you feel your shoulder nudge your chin. This would keep you focused on impact longer too. Give this a try.
