Activity Specific Coordination

Activity Specific Coordination

How the body moves and sequences during an activity is key to performance and avoiding injury. Utilizing training for improved golf swing performance is best accomplished through improving activity specific coordination. The body moves in very specific patterns during the golf swing. These patterns can be referred to as activity specific coordination. The more efficient […]

Club Dynamics

Club Dynamics

When I perform a biomechanics evaluation on a golfer’s swing, the most commonly asked first question is, “What is my club head speed?” Typically, the player is interested in miles per hour (MPH). Most golfers relate distance to linear speed, because until recently, this was the only measurement of power. However, with the advent and […]

Golf and baseball

Golf and baseball

Last month we spoke about ground forces and how the body moves and creates power.  Next, we are going to compare golf to baseball and the similarities in how the body creates the power generation process (kinetic link). Believe it or not, golf and baseball swings are biomechanically comparable. Hitters in baseball and golfers use […]
