Season is almost over and I have decided to enroll again in some Fall training program to further refine my game. I have also started doing some off-season personal training with Laylor Performance Systems (Spadina & Wellington), who trains a lot of am & pro athletes. I figured, if I was going to get more power, in a controlled manner I would need to get stronger in general so I am always in balance. But as we all should know, my personal trainer said I should never try to mimic a swing in my workouts as it will negatively affect the natural ability to swing. Instead, he recommended me to build strength and power, but hit the dome, or indoor simulators and hit balls at least 1-3 times a week. He said nothing will increase your swing speed like doing it naturally as you’ll be more in sync and working the right muscles. That is when I signed up for Lakeshore Links, a new facility just outside the downtown core, about 6 minutes drive from my place.
In the next few months, I will continue to post a series of lesson videos I’m taking from golf town, my workout sheets, some game thoughts, and results.
Here is the first video after a few weeks off my game. I have been losing a lot of distance, but I wasn’t sure exactly why. Been only hitting it at the out door ranges, but something in my swing didn’t feel natural. After this, I was 80% cured!
