Are you a golfer with a pretty good golf swing that is frustrated by a lack of distance and high scores? Do you think you should be getting more distance out of your golf swing even though others tell you that you have good mechanics? Were you a good athlete in your younger days only to be out driven by your smaller, maybe older playing partners?
If that is the case, Vitesse Sports Technologie and Z2 Golf believe the problem lies not necessarily in your golf swing, but possibly in your training program. Many studies state that hitting the ball farther is a result of being on the correct plane. While these studies are compelling and may be true for some, there are many golfers with on plane swings and still cannot hit the ball very far. So what gives?
Vitesse Sports Technologie believes that there are two major reasons why golfers don’t hit the ball far. The #1 reason for golfers’ lacking distance is AEROBIC EXERCISE! Believe it or not, aerobic conditioning, which we have all been taught to do, may be downfall of speed and power generation. Why? Because aerobic exercise recruits slow twitch endurance muscles instead of the fast twitch muscles responsible for power and speed. Thus, if you wish to condition yourself for the stamina to “last” the 18 holes, continue on with jogging and the treadmill. But be careful, it may be slowing your swing down.
The second biggest reason for a golfer lacking distance is WEIGHT TRAINING. Yup. “Get stronger”, they say, “then you can hit the ball farther.” But all you’re doing is making yourself move slower. There’s some scientific evidence discovered recently by Dr. Ken Baldwin showing how weight training makes one’s muscles contract slower.
As a contrast to this, haven’t we all seen teenagers with absolutely no weight training absolutely hit the ball out of this world? So unless you want to be a power lifter, don’t do a lot of weight training.
The solution? VST’s SpeedChain. It can train your muscles to generate more speed than ever before. So don’t bother trying to change your golf swing, just let the SpeedChain develop your muscles to put more power and speed into the ball.
