Cable Attached Weighted Downswing

The cable attached weighted downswing is one of the exercises I teach to every single one of my golfing clients.  Performing this correctly will get your body trained to use your glutes and abdominals as the driving part of your swing.  You know what they say, "the glutes are the king and the abs are the queen of the golf swing".  If you are one of my golf clients, then you know this exercise already, if you want to become a better golfer, check out what we can offer by clicking here.

Tim's list of benefits for the Cable Attached Weighted Downswing

  • By standing you are using a great number of stabilizer muscles.
  • Amazing for correcting your downswing, check out what else we can do to help your golf game by clicking here.
  • By adding weight you are able to create separation in your transition points, as your body becomes used to this separation, your kinematic sequence will improve automatically, without ever actually working on your swing.
  • This exercise will strengthen your glutes, core, shoulders, forearms, and quads, in addition to strengthening them, it also will help with flexibility.
  • Make sure you do this exercise both ways, this will make sure you have balance on your body but will also help with the big break theory.
