Member Question:

Hi Jaacob,

So my questions are:

What upper body lifts translate well to clubhead speed?

What lower body lifts translate well to clubhead speed?

Which exercise has the most correlation to clubhead speed?

Which strength exercise improves clubhead speed the fastest?

Thanks very much!

Jaacob’s Answer:

– What upper body lifts translate well to clubhead speed?

My favorite ones for upper body are probably cable wood chops (downswing), decline cable flyes or decline bench dumbbell flyes (downswing), one-arm cross body lat pull downs (downswing), decline cable triceps extensions (downswing), and incline cable chest flyes (through swing).

Secondary ones would be hammer curls (back swing and follow through), dumbbell or cable side lat raises (back swing and follow through), and then forearm exercises like curls, reverse curls, hammer curls, reverse hammer curls, and things for pronation and supination as well.

– What lower body lifts translate…

"Working with Jaacob's swing speed training programs I increased my speed by 12 miles per hour in one month. The game is a lot more fun with the driving distances I'm hitting them. Now I'm reaching greens in two more often. Swing speed training really works."

Premier Member increased Golf Swing Speed to 130 Mph

"When I first started the swing speed training I was very skeptical it would do anything for me because I was already swinging at speeds close to 130 mph. But I wanted to get to the next level and be able to compete in Long Drive Events. So I gave it a try. I gained 13 mph in just one month of the basic swing speed training."
